Comedian Sarah Silverman knows how to mix it up. Make ‘em laugh. Make ‘em rage.

On race and religion and sacred cows of every kind, it takes this comic about ten seconds to get so far out on the edge that people are walking out. But a whole lot more stay. And laugh. And think.

Silverman is sly. And cocky. Sweetly raunchy. Unrepentant. And – in a new memoir – almost tenderly revealing about the life and childhood that made her.

This Hour, On Point: A conversation with in-your-face comic, Sarah Silverman.Guest:

Sarah Silverman, comedian, writer, and actor. Her new book is "The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee."  (Click here to read an excerpt.)
