Sarah Silverman’s Comments on Losing a Role Due to Blackface Sketch Show a Lack of Growth

Sarah Silverman is one of the most successful and visible female comedians working today. With a career as long as she’s had, there are going to be jokes and sketches from her past that will always come up, and one of them is the blackface sketch from an episode of The Sarah Silverman Program. In the most recent episode of The Bill Simmons Podcast, Silverman admitted that she had recently been axed from a movie because of that sketch.

“I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part, then at 11 pm the night before they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode,” Silverman said. “I didn’t fight it. They hired someone else who is wonderful but who have never stuck their neck out. It was so disheartening. It just made me real, real sad, because I really kind of devoted my life to make it right.” Sarah Silverman has repeatedly made apologies for the blackface sketch. She talked about it in an article for GQ back in 2018, where she said that she doesn’t “stand by the blackface sketch” and is ” horrified by it.” For her, she sees it as part of her being in such a liberal bubble where she thought that, by doing a sketch with blackface, she was using racism to deal with racism. However, she clarified, “I don’t get joy in that anymore. It makes me feel yucky. All I can say is that I’m not that person anymore.”
