Sarah Silverman to Star in Her First HBO Special, Produced by Funny or Die

Sarah Silverman is coming to HBO. The pay-cable network announced today that Silverman will be doing her first-ever stand-up special for them, produced by Funny or Die. Entitled Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, the hour-long special will film next month and air in the fall. This past year, Silverman has lent her voice to Bob's Burgers and Wreck-It Ralph, and she signed on for a supporting role in Seth MacFarlane's live-action western A Million Ways to Die in the West. She also recently launched the YouTube comedy channel JASH with fellow comedy people Michael Cera, Tim & Eric, and Reggie Watts. We Are Miracles will be Silverman's first new stand-up release since her 2005 concert film Jesus is Magic, which was released so long ago that all the old people she sang "You're Gonna Die Soon" to are probably dead by now.
