The funny thing about this is that most comedians don’t agree with her.

Sarah Silverman: Comedians Should ‘Change with the Times’ for PC College Students

Jerry Seinfeld set off a bit of a firestorm earlier this year when he said he had stopped performing comedy at colleges because the students were generally too “politically correct.” It is a message that has been echoed by everyone from Chris Rock and Jay Leno to Bill Maher and Colin Quinn. But comedian Sarah Silverman has a different view.

Speaking to Vanity Fair from the Toronto Film Festival this week, where she is promoting her new film I Smile Back, Silverman said she didn’t agree with everything her fellow comedians have said on the issue.

“To a degree, everyone’s going to be offended by something, so you can’t just decide on your material based on not offending anyone,” she conceded. “But, I do think it’s important, as a comedian, as a human, to change with the times.” Silverman added, “I think it’s a sign of being old if you’re put off by that.”

As an example, she cited her use of the word “gay” — as in, “That’s so gay.” Silverman once defended her use of the word as a stand-in for “lame,” but then she stopped herself and realized, “I have become the guy from 50 years ago who said, ‘I say colored, I have colored friends.’”

“It’s not hard to change with the times, and I think it’s important,” she continued. “And when you have new information and when you become more aware of the world around you, you can change.”
