NEW YORK, December 1, 2008 � Tune-in to see what Sarah comes up with this week in an all-new episode of "The Sarah Silverman Program," on Thursday, December 4 at 10:30 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL. (all Times ET/PT)
In this week's episode, "Kangamangus," Sarah strives to leave a legacy by creating a popular slang word, "Ozay." While she struggles to get others interested, Brian effortlessly succeeds in the same pursuit with his word, "Dot-nose." Also, British actor, Matt Berry, ("The IT Crowd") makes a guest appearance.
"The Sarah Silverman Program" stars Silverman portraying a character (aptly named Sarah Silverman) whose absurd daily life is told through narrative and an occasional song. In each episode, Sarah falls into unique, unsettling and always hilarious predicaments, with her sister Laura (played by real-life sister Laura Silverman), her nerdy gay neighbors, Brian and Steve (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee) and dim-witted Officer Jay (Jay Johnston) never far from her side.
"The Sarah Silverman Program" Web site features highlight video clips from every show and a preview video clip each week, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes extras and a daily blog from the show insider, with stories, cast interviews and pictures from every episode. Also showcased are "Sarah Silverman Program" Animations, including brand new episodes of the hilarious and radical original Web series "The Adventures of Steve and Brian," "Fantastimart" and a Cookie Party game, with original voices from the cast.
The series is based on an idea by Silverman, Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab (Oscar-nominated "Monster House"). Silverman, Schrab, Heidi Herzon ("Jesus is Magic") and Dan Sterling ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart") are the executive producers. Schrab and Sterling also serve as director of some of the episodes. Gary Mann is the executive in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
