On Wednesday’s Stern Show, Sarah Silverman told Howard she was shocked that her age was the thing she was goofed on for at the “Comedy Central Roast of James Franco.” Seth Rogen did a joke about Sarah being on Maxim’s Hot 100 and the punch line was “… in 2007!” She wasn’t even the oldest person on the dais, so it all confused her, but she pretty much rolled with the punches.

Sarah also talked about dating and then breaking up with late-night host and frequent Stern Show guest Jimmy Kimmel. She just appeared on his show for the first time in a while. After her recent appearance, Jimmy sent her an email with the subject “Great Job Tonight” and the body of the email was a series of photos of Sarah famously smelling Stern Show writer Richard Christy’s balls. Sarah can’t believe she did that, but she was genuinely curious about the scent. She still marvels at how small Richard’s penis is, admitting that Jimmy’s is way bigger.

As for their relationship now, as Jimmy put it, they’re “like brothers.” Sarah really likes Jimmy’s wife and she and Jimmy still email each other regularly. Sarah also can’t believe how handsome Jimmy is now. He went from looking like a regular guy to looking like a celebrity. “His hair looks like hair!”

Sarah recently had a sitcom pilot dropped from NBC’s lineup and she was glad. She’s not suited for network life – it’s a lot of jumping through hoops – and she even admits that the pilot wasn’t very good. There’s good stuff after the first seven minutes, but she’s not thrilled with it.

Sarah loves TV and would like to find the formula for a three-camera sitcom that would work for her, but in the meantime, she makes most of her money from stand-up. She’s not as rich as you’d think, but she keeps her overhead cost low. “I have the highest poor to famous ratio – non scandal,” she said.
