As the cast of Saturday Night Live underwent a bit of a shakeup ahead of its 47th season, fans were introduced to a new set of comics ready to take the stage, including Sarah Sherman. The hilarious comedian, who made a name for herself for her outlandish live shows in Chicago, joins the cast along with Aristotle Athari and James Austin Johnson. Find out more about Sarah, aka “Sarah Squirm,” and her journey to the SNL stage!

Although Sarah grew up on Long Island, New York, the young comedian and actress transferred to Evanston, Illinois to seek a degree in theater from Northwestern University, graduating in 2015. After graduation, Sarah ventured into Chicago proper to try her hand at comedy, performing at various venues and mingling within the scene.

She’s A Chicago-Trained Comic 

Chicago is known as a breeding ground for comedic talent, known for bringing up other such SNL players like John Belushi, Bill Murray, Tina FeyAmy PoehlerRachel Dratch, and so many more. Sarah’s co-stars, Aidy Bryant and Cecily Strong also got their start in Chicago, with Aidy graduating from Columbia College Chicago and Cecily growing up in and returning to the city to train at the renowned Second City. Sarah definitely benefitted from the city’s resources, hosting standup shows at places like The Hideout, a venue known for its alternative programming, which provided the perfect venue for her subversive material.

“Chicago is an amazing city with amazing stand-up shows, but most shows are the same. I think it’s good for people to go to something that challenges them and what they like while also exposing them to something different,” Sarah once told Rebellious magazine. After years in the Chicago comedy scene, Sarah relocated to Los Angeles in 2019.

She’s Known For Surreal & Body Horror Comedy 

Although many find her funny, Sarah isn’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea. “I’m very gross,” the New York native told Rebellious. The comic often supplies content that features video gore, bodily fluids comedy, and other, well, gross stuff. “I was doing stand-up at traditional shows, and then I started doing comedy at a lot of DIY basement noise music shows. There was nothing that married the two. I was yearning for a freaky comedy space,” she continued. “There are freaks everywhere.”

She’s Hosted A Slew Of Hilariously Wild Shows 

Sarah has been known on the Chicago scene (and elsewhere on tour!) for her funny and grotesque comedy that are often outside the box — but fans keep coming. Sarah is a part of “Helltrap Nightmare,” which describes itself as a “travelling freak show.” Sarah also described the project to Rebellious as a variety show that provided “comedy, noise music, performance art and freaky behavior,” sharing that she liked the idea of a “Pee-wee’s Playhouse horror feel.”

Vice described the surreal show as “grotesque” and noted how her “live-action animation slideshows” are “hideous inventions,” displaying all kinds of weird and wild elements. For Sarah, that’s just how she likes it. “I like the magic of being transported to a different realm,” she told the outlet. “You’re spending $7, and I don’t know what horrible service industry job you have that doesn’t pay you enough, so if you’re paying tickets to go to a show, you better see a show.

She’s Created & Is Featured In Unique Digital Content  

In addition to an abundance of live shows with comedy troupes and her own stand-up material, Sarah also has a slew of digital content that’s wildly unique. For Means TV, the comedian created “The Sarah Vaccine,” released in 2021, which was described as a “technicolor COVID nightmare” and featured the “gross” comedy she’s known for. Sarah also made her Adult Swim debut in a special infomercial called “Flyaway” for the network. “If you don’t like things that are scary and disgusting […] you’re gonna have a tough time getting through this video,” Vulture described the short.

We look forward to see what Sarah will bring to the SNL cast!

Kim Kardashian Breaks Silence On Virgil Abloh’s Death: We ‘Will Miss You So Much’

Following the shocking death of Virgil Abloh, Kim Kardashian penned a touching tribute to the trailblazing fashion designer, saying that he was ‘taken away so early.’

The fashion and music world was left in mourning on Sunday (Nov. 28), following news that Virgil Abloh had passed away at age 41 after a two-year battle with a “rare, aggressive form” of cancer. Shortly after the announcement of Virgil’s death, the tributes from celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Gigi Hadid, and others started flowing in. For Kim Kardashian, she finally found the words to express her sadness and heartache on Monday (Nov. 29). Kim, 41, who became close to Virgil thanks to his creative partnership with Kanye West, posted an emotional tribute to her Instagram. “God doesn’t make mistakes. I know that but I still can’t help but ask why. Why Virgil?! Why him so soon?”

“[It’s simply hard to understand why,” continued Kim. “I have a hard time understanding why so many pure souls were taken away so early. Virgil- you were always so gentle, kind and calm. You somehow made time for everyone. We also talked about your superpower of calmness often. You always gave so much of yourself to the world because you wanted it to be doper. This one is hard to process. I can’t even believe I am writing this… We will miss you so much Virgil and love you so much. Also I would love to send so much love to his wife Shannon. Because you loved and supported Virgil the way that you did, he was able to give so much of himself everyone else. So thank you truly for sharing him with us the way that you did. Virgil’s legacy will live on forever through Shannon, Lowe and Grey.”

Kanye, 44, honored his friend and collaborator during his Nov. 28 edition of his Sunday Service. At t the end of the livestream performance, a title card read, “In loving memory of Virgil Abloh, the creative director of Donda.” Kanye and Virgil first met in the early 2000s when he met with Ye’s then-manager John Monopoly, per Vogue. The two began working together at that point. In 2009, they worked as interns at Fendi in Rome. “I was really impressed with how [Abloh and West] brought a whole new vibe to the studio and were disruptive in the best way, “Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke said, “Virgil could create a metaphor and a new vocabulary to describe something as old-school as Fendi.” In 2010, Virgil officially assumed the role of Creative Director at Donda, Ye’s creative agency. He was the art director for Watch The Throne, which earned him a Grammy Nomination.

Virgil and Kanye clashed after Abloh left Donda to become the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collections. “When they say he was my creative director, that’s incorrect. He was a creative collaborator,” Kanye told Axel Vervoordt in a conversation for The Hollywood Reporter in 2018. “I had been dealing with a very heavy concept this week that I couldn’t get out of my head… It’s not bad or good. It’s my creative collaborator being the head of Louis Vuitton.” However, whatever beef Virgil and Ye had, they squashed it by mid-2018. When Virgil presented his first menswear collection during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, Kanye broke down in joyful tears for his friend, per Entertainment Tonight.

The official social media pages for Virgil, Louis Vuitton, Off-White (Virgil’s fashion house) shared the news of his death, saying that he battled cardiac angiosarcoma “privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture.” Many of Virgil’s friends and celebrity clients paid tribute to him after his death. Virgil designed a wedding dress for Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin), and she called him a “once in a generation creative mind.” Victoria Beckham said he was a “true inspiration in so many ways.” Khloé Kardashian posted a series of white dove emojis, followed by a string of broken heart emojis. Kris Jenner sent all her love to “his beautiful family,” while Kendall Jenner said that her friend was “bright,” “kind,” and “full of love.”
