Film Vault Friday: Sarah Silverman, 1992

(Before you think it, I just want to point out that it’s still Friday somewhere.)

Sarah Silverman hasn’t aged a bit since appearing on Evening at the Improv in 1992 (this is even before her too-brief time on SNL). But here’s something to make you feel old: babies born during this set are heading to college in the fall.

A lot of these old A&E standup shows come back to haunt the participants, and while it’s obviously not as good as anything Sarah produces today, I think she can probably live with this set without cringing.
