What Louis C.K. didn't want you to know about the season premiere of 'Louie'

Is Louis C.K. hoaxing us?

By now, you’ve probably watched “Back,” the season premiere of Louie. (And if you haven’t, go watch it before we spoil things for you.) And you know that the highlight of the episode is the frank, funny discussion about masturbation that Louie shares with other comedians, including Sarah Silverman, Rick Crom, Nick DiPaolo, Jim Norton, and William Stephenson, at a poker table. (Norton, who recently spoke to me on Entertainment Weekly’s SiriusXM radio show TV Editor’s Hour, says the scene was inspired by the long-running real-life weekly poker games that Stephenson plays with other comedians, and he notes that the Louie scene was partly improvised.) Most of it is too dirty to quote here, but suffice to say that Norton confesses more about his proclivities than most men would admit, and there’s a line about Batman that almost made me shoot seltzer out my nose, like a clown. Also, it ends with Louie disappearing behind a closed door, holding a back massager, and it’s clear that he’s not planning on massaging his back. READ FULL STORY

Sarah Silverman joins Showtime's 'Masters of Sex'

Sarah Silverman is getting sexy.

The comedian has joined Showtime’s drama Masters of Sex as a recurring guest star playing the character of Helen. Currently filming in Los Angeles, the second season will premiere on Sunday, July 13 at 10 p.m. Silverman joins series regulars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, who star as human sexuality pioneers William Masters and Virginia Johnson in the show about their lives and influence on sex and the world. Season 2 will also feature Keke Palmer, Caitlin Fitzgerald, Teddy Sears, and Annaleigh Ashford.

Silverman won an Emmy for having sex with Matt Damon, well at least for the song “I’m F**ing Matt Damon”, so something tells me she’ll fit right in.

Sarah Silverman gets her first HBO comedy special

Sarah Silverman’s  HBO special, Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, will be coming to HBO this fall. The program will be taped in Los Angeles in May and will be presented in association with Funny or Die.

Silverman has had her own show, The Sarah Silverman Program, and a comedy movie, Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic, but this is her first HBO comedy special. The lack of censorship on HBO will work well with her brand of humor. That being said, here are two great (and pretty tame) Silverman clips (the first a little NSFW, the second very SFW):
