Longtime friend of the show Sarah Silverman did not tweet or call into the show about the death of Eric the Actor, instead she flew in to pay her respects in person. It didn't hurt that she had an album signing in the neighborhood later in day.
Sarah just won an Emmy for her amazing stand up special 'We Are Miracles'. Sarah was so surprised by her win that she ran up to the stage without shoe s- she'd taken them off because they hurt. She also, regrettably, forgot to yell 'Baba Booey', which she'd always fantasized about doing if she ever won an award.
Also, since Sarah isn't a douchebag, she did not carry her Emmy around at the after parties; she left it in the car. Carrying your Emmy award with you, Sarah said, is for Daily Show writers who need it to get p*ssy.
Sarah has been all over TV lately, including a star turn on her boyfriend Michael Sheen's show 'Masters of Sex'. She gets topless in the series, which seems to have become a regular occurrence in Sarah's career – she recently appeared topless in a shower scene in the movie 'Take This Waltz'. She's not uptight about showing of a 'human body' anymore.
Her boyfriend, Michael Sheen, is a guy you might know from '30 Rock' or 'Masters of Sex' or 'Frost/Nixon' or 'The Queen'. Or, maybe, his relationship with Kate Beckinsale, with whom he has a son. Sarah admits that she is doing her best to be a great 'stepmom'.
Still, though, she is not into marriage. Howard tried to get her in the mood by saying if I'm your boyfriend and I want to tell the whole world how much I love you by marrying you, what would you say? Sarah said she'd tell her boyfriend to Tweet it.
Howard was fascinated by one of Sarah's stories about showering in the water run-off from her mom's big bush. Sarah's mom would be in the shower and Sarah (we assume she was a young kid) would stand under her mother and wash herself in the water that ran down her mother's bush. The story really begins and ends there.
Oh, and about Eric the Actor, Sarah found him totally fascinating and she we really, really miss him on the show.
Check out Sarah's new album (also available as a 'piece of vinyl') and watch her host Saturday Night Live on October 4th!
