83 Hilarious and Funny Sarah Silverman Quotes and Sayings

Sarah Silverman, born December 1, 1970, is a sharp-witted American comedian and actress known for her critiques on race, gender and religion.

Raised in a liberal environment in New Hampshire, she entered the comedy scene at 17.

Despite an early career setback on Saturday Night Live, she showcased her unapologetically bold style on shows like Mr. Show and The Larry Sanders Show.


Her humor, often laced with irony, attracted both acclaim and controversy. Not just limited to TV, Silverman appeared in films, voicing Vanellope in “Wreck-It Ralph” and impressing with dramatic roles in “Take This Waltz” and “I Smile Back.”

She also candidly addressed post-2016 election tensions on her talk show “I Love You, America.”

I have listed below some of the funniest quotes by her.
