5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh riot January 19, 2006
"Jesus is Magic" is one of the funniest films I've ever seen in my life. I laughed almost constantly throughout the whole thing, and so did my friend and everyone else in the small theater I saw it in.

Essentially a concert film, "Jesus is Magic" also features a handful of musical numbers and "mockumentary" style scenes. You could make the argument that the musical numbers really weren't necessary, since Sarah's stand-up is so shockingly, insanely funny. But without the musical numbers, I would have missed out on Sarah singing "You're gonna die soon" to a group of senior citizens in a nursing home, or her holding the microphone up to her different orafices, all of which have different voices.

What I love about Sarah is that her comedy doesn't really seem to have any kind of agenda, other than to make you laugh hysterically as she constantly humiliates every ridiculous thing about our society.

I happen to think Sarah Silverman is a very talented comedienne, and an eminently entertaining performer. Her deadly serious delivery of the most outrageously offensive material is her trademark. She conveys a certain sweetness and naivete, even as the most horrible things come out of her mouth. She can be provocative, controversial, button-pushing and brilliant. She is super intelligent and her social commentary, couched in very un-PC jokes, can be biting and relevant.

That said, I don't think "Jesus is Magic" is as wholly successful a film as I would have liked. Most of the standup material is good and biting--but be forewarned, it's adult stuff. If this were a concert film, I'd have been more inclined to a 4 or 4 1/2 star rating. Whether or not you think someone is funny is often a matter of personal taste and I like Silverman. There are plenty of other people who have made it huge that I have never thought were very interesting.

The more problematic aspects of this film, for me, is where she ventures into "bits." There are a couple of staged music video type numbers. Now, I love a good musical interlude as much as the next person and I was thrilled when these segments began. However, while there may have been a funny line or hook--the songs ultimately become repetitive and play out as one-note jokes. There also some backstage skits. Again, these provide some minor amusement but don't necessarily enhance the film.

If you're a Silverman fan, obviously you're going to watch this. If you like intelligently offensive comedy, I'd recommend this as well. As a Silverman supporter, I am hoping her next venture will be a little more cohesive. KGHarris, 10/06.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please enter a title for your review October 7, 2006
Format:DVD
Sarah Silverman takes comedy to a whole new level that makes everything else seem stale and conservative. She's a rare breed of comedian who, like Tom Green and Andy Kaufman, is more interested in consistently surprising her audience than in developing a rapport with them.
Most of her act involves making wide-eyed naive statements which treat irrational, and often offensive, beliefs as second nature and leave it up to you to conclude what the irrational belief behind the statement is, but she always finds a way to express it through using the kind of banal anecdotal approach a lot of comedians use to set up their jokes, so it catches you off-guard while also parodying conventional stand-up technique.
She does use shock value, but she has a uniquely clever way with twist punchlines. Like that one joke she does about licking jelly off her boyfriend. She starts out with the dirty part, and then uses the clean part, the common phrase the dirty part is playing off of ("oh my god i'm turning into my mother"), as the punchline. I think that's unprecedented. I mean tell me any other dirty joke with a twist punchline by any other comedian which starts out with the dirty part and uses the clean part as the punchline.
The comedic value of her material is really in the irrationality of the ideas she expresses. Like she has this one old bit which is like "I don't like going out to dance clubs. It's very embarassing for me. Because I tapdance." Most of her more recent offensive material works the same way, throwing in a twist punchline which reveals an amusingly irrational perspective, but the offensive material is open to a more superficial interpretation which disregards the cleverness of the context and sees her appeal as being merely her willingness to be outrageous.

I am a Sarah Siverman fan as she is one of very few comics, especially female, to let it all hang out and see what happens. Her dark humor may be very insulting to those who are easilt offended, but to me the more un-pc that she is, the funnier I find her.

While I did not see this with high expectations as I am not a huge fan of stand-up acts (which is what this piece is at its core), even those werer not fully met. Sarah is cute, funny, and her play on words would have made for a good 20 minute short. Instead we get over an hour of songs, skits, and other filler, to try and give it some air by getting out off the stage. Some stuff works, some works for a while, and some is just not funny.

If you are a fan, rent it and watch it with other Sarah fans, and you'll have on OK time. Now that Margaret Cho has become almost an irrelevant one trick pony, Sarah is one of the few truly funny females around who mixes it up. If anyone saw the 2007 MTV Movie Awards and found her funny, you could do much worse than seeing this as most "comedy" movies are just not very funny. Humor is hard work and Sarah is an impish little marvel who I'd love to see in a more fully realized vehicle.
