Sarah Silverman could have made an awkward encounter when she was a guest on ex’s Jimmy Kimmel’s show. Given that Silverman and Kimmel both stem from their comedic paths, it proved an amusing experience between the ex love birds when the two “reunited” for Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Instead of skirting around the issue, Silverman and Kimmel took shots at each other and really played up the fact that in another world, this wouldn’t be the ideal situation. Sarah Silverman was on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her special on HBO called We Are Miracles. Instead, the real treat was the undeniable chemistry between the two exes.
Silverman made a grand entrance by presenting Jimmy Kimmel with a “box of his stuff.” The contents of his “stuff” included rather large outdated jeans, a toothbrush, which Silerman noted was from before he “went electric,” and a collage made up of Jimmy Kimmel’s head that Sarah made out of a bunch of personal pictures.
Silverman explained that her guest appearance on Kimmel’s show isn’t, and shouldn’t be, awkward. In her signature dry sense of humor, she addressed both Jimmy and the audience:
“Isn’t this like weird, but good weird? This is human nature. This is the way life is. People break up, and exes are gonna bump into each other. They’re gonna cross paths. They’re gonna be on each other’s talk shows, you know? It’s the cycle of life.”
This isn’t the first time the two have made fun of their relationship. Sarah Silverman’s viral video, “I’m F–king Matt Damon,” debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! while the couple were still going strong. Kimmel countered back with a video with Damon’s friend Ben Affleck titled “I’m F–king Ben Affleck.” The two comedians dated on and off for years, but decided to call it off in 2009.
Jimmy Kimmel wound up getting married to Molly McNearney in 2013. The two met on his show.
