Sarah Silverman to perform in Israel
Jewish American comedian to take part in Presidential Conference in Jerusalem ahead of Tel Aviv stand-up comedy night on June 25
Jewish American comedian Sarah Silverman will arrive in Israel next month for a stand-up comedy night at Tel Aviv's Wahl Amphitheater on June 25. Ticket prices will range from NIS 200 to 250 ($58-72).

 

In addition, she will also take part in the third annual Israeli Presidential Conference at the Jerusalem International Convention Center on June 21.

 

Silverman launched her career as a stand-up comedian at the age of 19, and took her first steps in television in 1993 as a writer and featured player on "Saturday Night Live".

 

She was fired a year later, mainly because the sketches she wrote were never aired. Rumor has it that she was dismissed by fax, but she quickly recovered on the Larry Sanders Show, and even teased her former employers by playing a writer whose sketches are not aired due to the chauvinism of the head of the writers' team.

 

From the mid 1990s, Silverman appeared on a long list of television programs, films and sitcoms, including a small guest role on "Seinfeld".

 

"The Sarah Silverman Program", in which she portrayed several fictionalized versions of herself alongside her sister Laura and other actors, debuted on Comedy Central in February 2007.

 

The program was considered one of Comedy Central's most successful shows, although it was canceled after only three seasons.
