#12 – Sarah Silverman

Born in 1970 and raised in New Hampshire, Sarah Silverman was only a teenager when she caught her first major breaks in theater and comedy. First trying her hand in standup comedy, Silverman performed to small audiences in Boston before moving to New York City. Once in the Big Apple, the 23 year old Silverman was called to appear on “Saturday Night Live” and soon became a writer, only to get fired shortly after one of her sketches appeared on the show.

While building her comedic repertoire, Silverman also tried her hand at acting and attended many casting calls, including Gypsy, which is pictured here. Silverman didn’t get the Gypsy role but her career soon rebounded, launching her as a mainstay in comedy and films that include School of Rock, Wreck-It Ralph and A Million Ways to Die in the West.
