Comedian Sarah Silverman appears to be on some sort of sick mission to convince Americans that aborting an unborn baby is funny. This week, however, her raunchy comedy routine backfired.
Page Six reports Silverman told some “considerably dirty and outrageous” jokes during a recent charity event for children in New York City. Young students were in the audience when Silverman joked about abortion, sexual assault, semen and sex with her boyfriend, according to the report.
The charity event benefited the ArtsConnection, which promotes art education in public schools. In addition to Silverman, children from city middle and high schools also performed during the evening event, according to the report.
Here is more from the report:
“At the end of the night, Silverman seemed to shock even the most hard-core New Yorkers with her limit-pushing new material,” said a guest at the esteemed annual event, where Lena Dunham and Amy Cappellazzo were honored. Another guest at the gala said of Silverman’s saucy shtick, “I guess she was told not to hold back.”
The event kicked off with a more tame performance by kids from MS 266 Park Place Community Middle School in Brooklyn, and presenters included students from city high schools Edward R. Murrow and La Guardia.

“Even for teens,” Silverman’s routine “was intense,” said one guest.
Spies said Silverman’s jokes included recalling a time in college that one of her sisters was vomiting in a toilet and simultaneously defecated when her pants fell down; a bit about how “sperm have a sense of smell”; and a Silverman run-in with a 9-year-old abortion protester who told her she would “burn in hell,” but Silverman then made her smile by telling a “poop joke.”
A guest joked, “It was an interesting bookend to an evening that started with kids performing a tune from ‘Once on This Island.’”
Boldly pro-abortion, Silverman has no scruples about telling filthy jokes – often about abortion, sex and religion. In 2012, she also caused an uproar after an online post about getting a “quickie abortion.” In 2014, she joked that unborn babies are “just goo.” Then she participated in a vulgar video that claimed Jesus Christ supports abortion. And in 2013, she joked about doing a “live abortion in this show” on MSNBC.
