Sarah Silverman Covers 'Paper' May 2010

Sarah Silverman Covers 'Paper' May 2010

Sarah Silverman poses with a bird on the cover of Paper magazine’s May 2010 issue, on newsstands next week.

Here’s what the 39-year-old comedian had to share:

On writing her new memoir The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee: “In the beginning I wrote with such a furrowed brow, the way I thought writers should write. I had to throw a lot of that away… Writing is so lonely….You learn to give yourself rewards every time you make any kind of stride. Like, ‘Oh, I deserve a nap.’”

On Silverlake hipsters: “This neighborhood is too cool for me. I live in an old-people neighborhood. My building, my neighbors — all old people. I pass [hipsters] on the tennis court with my dog and heckle them.”

On meeting her boyfriend, Alec Sulkin: “I had dinner with some friends, washed my face, brushed my teeth, got into bed with my laptop, and saw that he had written me. So I just wrote, ‘Do you want to come over and feel my forehead until I fall asleep?’ and he emailed back and said, ‘Yes.’ So I gave him my address and then thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s coming to murder me,’ and I was thinking of that scene in Election when Matthew Broderick is about to have a sexual encounter and he goes home and washes his balls really fast.” He arrived half an hour later, knocked on the door, extended his hand and said, “Hi, I’m Alec.”

    Paper is an amazing magazine. Completely and totally hipster – I recently attended a launch party where many Paper readers were present that taught me a lot. For a westside boy, I rarely make it over to Echo Park. However, I built up the courage and made it there to experience a night truly unlike many others I’ve had in recent weeks.

  • ugh…

    My 13 year old brother is funnier.
