Written so vividly in her voice, you almost frown at one side of the mouth and shrug Silverman-stylee whilst reading it. Personally I liked to imagine she was sat /laid next to me narrating her tales of wet bed-sheets and excessive body hair with her (head) hair in pig-tails and her Cookie Party t-shirt on.
There is a great moment in The Bedwetter where Sarah gets the chance to meet one of her 80’s rock hero’s and he then goes on to introduce her to his friends as the girl that tells ‘great nigger jokes’. She is horrified in being perceived in this way and then explains that she won’t reveal the rock star’s identity but from that moment on she stopped believin’. There is an irony in Silverman’s comedy and she always acts the ignorant figure at the centre of it to great effect. The Bedwetter’s duel purpose is to put right the misconceptions for the bigots who don’t ‘get’ her.
If you love Sarah Silverman, you will love her more after reading this. If you don’t love her already start with Jesus is Magic (2005) or the I'm Fucking Matt Damon video if you don’t like that then read The Bell Jar and stick your head in the oven on gas mark 6 for 90 minutes that should do the trick.
