‘Jesus Is Magic’ at The Smith

Comedian Sarah Silverman's new film, “Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic,” will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday, May 12 at the Smith Opera House in downtown Geneva.

The film consists mostly of her stand-up act, an arbitrary collection of nasty thoughts about everything from her boyfriend to racism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia.

Her formula hardly ever varies and never fails: She says something terrible, and “it dawns on her” that she's said something terrible, so she she tries to clear it up with something worse.

“Those who can stand the profanity, the crudeness and the merciless strafing of all things noble and sacrosanct, will find themselves huddled over in a painful ball of non-stop guffaws,” according to one reviewer.

“Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic” will be screened at 7 p.m. this weekend — May 12, 13, 15 and 16 — and at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 14. A comedy concert film, it is not rated and has a running time 72 minutes. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students and senior citizens and are available at the door.
