Sarah Silverman




Bad Girl Makes Good Sarah Silverman is only 36, but Time magazine just placed her on a list with grand masters Richard Pryor and Bob Newhart as one of six “Standouts of Stand-up Comedy.” After a bunch of scene-stealing movie roles, she perfects her bitchy, sardonic girlfriend persona in her latest film, “School For Scoundrels.” She placed #50 in Maxim magazine’s “2006 Hot List,” squeezed between Naomi Watts and Britany Murphy (now there’s an image!). Her DVD “Jesus is Magic” is selling well and she wowed the critics with her deadpan delivery in the trés filthy “The Aristocrats.” In short, Sarah Silverman of Bedford is at the top of her game and rising. Not bad for a kid who got her start starring as “Annie” for the Community Players of Concord.

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
