do people still think she's actually funny? if i wanted somewhat dirty jokes with at least some social commentary, i can tune to old south park or throw on some carlin if i wanted brainless slapstick that's actually funny i'd throw on some lisa lampenilli but why would anyone want to hear cursing for the sake of cursing, no wit or context, and try to call itself comedy by milking kimmel (another tired act)? what's stopping me from entering any 3rd grade classroom in America to listen to the same crap for free, save the pedophilia aspect? are there any soccer moms left who still deem themselves 'hip and edgy' in their kohl's jeans by faux-approving of her just because she curses, yet they find stern who actually formulates opinions jokes asides, too appalling?

So true, she was out once that well ran dry.

Apparently her editor wanted her to name her book: "The Kike Runner."

Only watched a few minutes of her show once. It did nothing for me.

That said, I did find her strangely alluring; would probably hit it, then leave before she woke up and make sure I never called again.

She is one of the few people in the entertainment industry that I just can't stand. Every time I see her on television it makes my skin crawl. I can't understand why anyone would find her funny or entertaining in any way.

I admit it. I find her funny and hot. I can't explain it other than I have questionable taste in women and comedians.

+1 - she's my ideal woman... except that she once said wiping her ass is like trying to get bubble gum out of a shag carpet. I can overlook that.

Much funnier than Dane Cook or Dimitri Martin. Then again, so is bubonic plague.

I bought "Jesus is Magic" based on the AIDS/LemonAIDS line (which I thought was really funny) and her brilliant, brilliant turn in "The Aristocrats." So I had high hopes. I watched about 30 minutes of it, failed to laugh even once, and I haven't finished it. Awful. Still, would probably hit. She gets worse and weirder looking every day. Would definitely have hit 3-5 years ago.
