She has Silverman SPOT ON, though. This is also the girl that played Julie in the Scott Pilgrim movie and got her character perfectly.
Plaza is one of my favorite comic actors working today. She's my favorite character on Parks & Recreation.
Yeah she has talent. Silverman has the Tim and Eric problem where some stuff is almost funny until it gets pushed into the "try too hard to be shocking/offensive/bizarre" area. Her impression of Silverman sums up her comedy act nicely.
So...it's a woman trying too hard to impersonate another woman who tries too hard?
Are there any good female comedians?
Seriously, I'd like to know.
Kristen Schaal and Maria Bamford are both very good.
Thanks guys. I forgot about Kristen Schaal. She was hilarious on the Daily Show the other night talking about rape.
"Can you show me on the piggy bank where Obama tried to money-rape you? Was it here? Did he drill a hole in here?"
Does Patton Oswalt count?
I think there are more horribly unfunny male comedians than female because the market is flooded with male comedians and most of what makes it on TV is awful. I really only like Patton Oswalt and Jim Gaffigan as far as comedy central is concerned for stand up.
There was one really funny comedian that was a woman on Live at Gotham or whatever but I can't remember her name. Tall, blonde, very attractive, good timing, made fun of dumb women if anyone can help me out.
Might have been Sierk. I just remember she was hot, funny, had a good stage presence and had sudden bursts of energy. I'm also a little worried that she is the same girl that had an actual special that was basically Dane Cook in a woman's body which means what little bit of the Gotham bit was all the funny she had.
Really good impression, and jew-gina.

The first time I saw Sarah Silverman was in the "Aristocrats", where announced that she had been raped by Joe Franklin. After THAT, I can forgive a lot.
Five stars for letting me see this girl outside of her P&R persona. She is truly wonderful in that show, although goddamn it, the best part of that show is Amy Pohler, who is acting on a level that SNL never allowed her to use, and I love Rashida Jones so much that when she was on The Office, I may have been the only person in America rooting against Jim getting together with Pam.
I've realized the reason i do not care for Sarah Silverman is because she is an ungodly amalgam of all of my ex girlfriends.
That said, she actually did rather well in Wreck-it Ralph. I truly think she should stick to voice acting and reading other people's material instead of writing her own.
