Sarah Silverman’s “Magic” Trailer

Filed Under Movies

The South by Southwest festival has put up a trailer for a documentary about Sarah Silverman's stand-up show “Jesus is Magic.” (click on the low bandwidth version, the high doesn't seem to work at all). I saw the show a couple of years ago, but from the short bits shown none of stand-up looks new. But this looks to be more than just a concert film with sketches and songs interspersed throughout, almost like a TV show development execs should have been begging her to make but probably couldn't, since the trailer has at least two jokes that could cause a “chink” controversy, 'cept with a different ethnic group. Like “Aristocrats,” I'm hoping this film gets enough distribution to be an underground hit.
