I've never been a gigantic fan of Sarah Silverman. To me, she's coasted on being sardonic instead of being funny, a trait that has permeated her entire persona.
With that said, Will Leitch's profile on Silverman in "New York" was tremendous because he went behind Silverman's smart-ass facade and showed us the real person. That's the highest praise I can offer for any celebrity profile; he also got nifty secondary sources, which fewer and fewer writers do these days.
And, no, I'm not saying these nice things because Will, when he was the editor of Deadspin, once used my services.
