For the first time in Australia, Sarah Silverman is set to perform stand-up comedy shows in November and December 2012. Appearing at the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, this Emmy-nominated performer is sure to have audiences in stitches.

Silverman is a bold and versatile performer. A well-known film and television actress, she has a flair for iconic online videos that permeate the pop-culture consciousness. And if that’s not enough, she recently wrote a book (The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee) that wound up on the New York Times bestseller list.

Nominated for a 2009 Emmy in the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series category for her portrayal of a fictionalised version of herself in The Sarah Silverman Program, Silverman has also received a WGA nomination for her work on the show. She won a Primetime Emmy in 2008 in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for her now-legendary musical collaboration with Matt Damon.

In addition, she was honored with a Best Actress Webby Award for her online video “The Great Schlep,” in which she persuaded young Jewish kids to encourage their grandparents in Florida to vote for President Obama prior to the 2008 election.
