I had never heard of Sarah Silverman before binging on “Monk,” the TV series, via AmazonPrime. Sarah guest-starred magnificently in Series 6, Episode 1: “Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan [Marci Maven].” (She had been in a prior “Monk” episode, years earlier.)
Later I bought "Sarah Silberman's 'Jesus Is Magic'" (notice who got star billing there). I rented the video and watched it twice. I thought the work was brilliant, in a way, but I didn't laugh much.
While reading "The Bedwetter," I got the feeling that I was getting to know Sarah, intimately. Of course, it could all be an hallucination. In any event, I was entranced by Sarah's words, and especially her superlative and efficient use of language (maybe her editor deserves credit).
And since she is the one who turned me onto "Fan Fiction" (during "Monk") I promise to write a Fan Fiction story starring Sarah and me (notice who gets top billing).
Postscript: Just before Christmas 2019, I bought all of the available episodes of "The Sarah Silverman Program" on Amazon, kind of a present from me to me, I thought. Set me back about forty-five bucks. No big deal but the problem was that the show is absolutely awful. Sarah and her real-life/on-show sister Laura are very charismatic, but the other characters and the stories told, well. . . not for me. Now re-thinking whether I should do that Fan Fiction piece I was thinking about doing, the one featuring Sarah who, as Marci Maven, had turned me on to the Fan-Fiction genre during the "Monk" episode mentioned above (Season 6, Episode 1). If I do proceed with the project, it would probably be after I see Sarah on Broadway, and also after we see how well the show does economically and critically. Unless inspiration hits before then.
