      Concert films don’t always make for the greatest entertainment. Even if you’re a fan of the comedian in question, things can drag, gags can falter and once your attention’s been lost, it’s hard to tune back in.

      Thankfully, Sarah Silverman’s Jesus is Magic manages to offer up a fresh and highly entertaining experience. A rather conventional stand up concert set up is peppered with some hilarious music video moments and set pieces by


      Silverman that bring her individual talents to the centre stage.

      If you’ve seen anything of Sarah Silverman before, you’ll likely know what to expect. She doesn’t hold back with her subject matter. Rape, racism, homosexuality and the holocaust are all brought into play in a very casual, matter of fact way and she rarely makes apologizes for herself. But there’s a quality about her that makes you instantly realize she’s being clever with her humour, she doesn’t mean it. She’s a charm about her, something quite childlike in a way that takes the edge of a pretty sharp tongue. Throughout the film, she’s foul mouthed, offensive but constantly playful.

      She’s a born entertainer, switching smoothly between a simple, intimate stand up performance to her comedic songs, and the specially recorded music videos she’s got to go along with them. “German Cars” deserves a special mention; ...


      • Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic
      with Sarah at first offering us insight into the mass Jewish consumerism of German car companies that were allowed to flourish in Nazi German’s war effort, before breaking into a song about it, going on to lyric about many a confusing irony.

      She might be too harsh a flavour for some mind. Somehow I can’t see a gag about getting an elderly grandmother’s corpse exhumed for a rape exam sitting well with

      some; but she at least pays off the more extreme of her gags with a decent punch line.

      If you’re a fan of Sarah Silverman, you’ll love this. If you’re not and want to give her a try; this is certainly worth a look. It’s far from Sarah on her best behaviour, but she’s less off the wall than in her television shows, and it serves as a nice tasting plate to her talents.
