Sarah Silverman Pushes Buttons

Sarah Silverman was said to be in rare form at her sold-out Hammerstein Ballroom comedy show over the weekend.

She touched on scandalous subjects including her relationship with Jimmy Kimmel, Barack Obama, and adoption trends in Hollywood.

She said: "Jimmy [Kimmel] was yelling at me for being Jewish the other night. And he said, 'You need glasses to see and pills to breathe.' "

She talked about attending an LA fund-raiser for the president-elect a year ago and asking him: " 'Sen. Obama, when you were in school in Boston, did you encounter any racism?' And he said something really interesting. He said, 'I'm Kanye West.' "

On the topic of adoption, Sarah poked fun at Angelina Jolie and Madonna saying: "I would like to adopt someday, thank you. I think if you adopt, you really have to go brown with it because otherwise you don't get the credit." She definitely knows how to push the comedic envelope, that's for sure.
