Sarah Silverman says that most comics’ sense of humor comes from self-loathing. For her, that wasn’t really the case:
"I think my comedy came more from humiliation… I was a chronic bed-wetter. I had this deep, dark secret. If I had to go to sleepover parties I would just pinch myself awake all night.

Silverman just won an Emmy for best writing for a variety special, her HBO special, We Are Miracles.
