Sarah Silverman is back with her first HBO special, We Are Miracles, tonight at 10 pm ET. Last week she told Andy Borowitz at 92Y in New York: “Sometimes at night I'll smoke a little pot before bed and I'll think of a great idea for a joke, but then in the morning I realize it's not a complete thought in any way. I think George Carlin said write stoned and edit sober or something."
Silverman added: "I have very few vivid memories because I smoke a lot of pot. Only when all work is done and just a puff or two as a treat. I never smoke pot, like if I were going to come here. But I have found if I smoke a little pot before I play basketball I become amazing and I hear myself saying things like 'not on my watch' a lot."
In the intro of We Are Miracles, Silvermnan smokes a joint outside Largo, the L.A. comedy club where it's filmed. Silverman's at her edgy best and is once again directed by Liam Lynch (Jesus Is Magic).
