Warner Music Entertainment is pleased to announce the DVD release of Sarah Silverman's first full-length feature film, Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic, on 20th October 2008. The DVD will boast an array of Special Features including Audio Commentary with director Liam Lynch and Sarah Silverman, behind-the-scenes footage, "Give The Jew Girl Toys" video and three different theatrical trailers.

Comedy, television and entertainment critics are hailing Silverman as the most controversial female stand-up comedian in America; the new female Lenny Bruce. Silverman has recently been nominated for three Emmy Awards including Best Comedy Actress for her critically acclaimed smash hit television show, The Sarah Silverman Programme, currently one of the highest rated comedy shows on the Comedy Central channel in America (the series is currently being shown on the Paramount Comedy channel in the UK). In Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic; Silverman entertains a Los Angeles audience with several sketches, taped outside the theatre, and interwoven into stand-up performance. The central comedic themes throughout the film include race, sex and religion. Silverman's comic persona is that of a self-centred hipster, brash and clueless about her political incorrectness. A handful of highly ironic and entertaining musical numbers punctuate her performances.

The original stage version of the show played in front of sold-out audiences in New York City and Los Angeles. The LA Times called Jesus Is Magic "savagely effective, as ruthlessly provocative as anything since the heyday of Lenny Bruce". Liam Lynch, the fast-rising video and film director, whose credits include the hit movie Tenacious D In: The Pick Of Destiny, collaborated with Silverman to adapt her show to the big screen. The film also stars Bob Odenkirk, Brian Posehn and Silverman's comedian/actor sister, Laura Silverman, along with Silverman's musical band, The Silver Men. Despite the current political climate, in Jesus Is Magic, Silverman tackles such pitch-black topics as September 11th, unwanted body hair, the Holocaust, old age, and spins them into decidedly un-politically correct comedic gold.

As she proclaims in the film, "When God gives you AIDS (and God does give you AIDS, by the way), make LemonAIDS." Since Jesus Is Magic was released in America, and her television series has become a critically acclaimed hit, Silverman's popularity is making its way to the UK. Her appetite for outrageous comedy was recently validated by hilarious exchange of YouTube videos between her and boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel, host of the popular weeknight U.S. chat show, The Jimmy Kimmel Show.
