Dear Variety Columnist Brian Lowry,

You wrote a negative review of Sarah Silverman’s new comedy special, “We Are Miracles,” which aired on HBO Saturday night.

Sarah Silverman Visits Ex Jimmy Kimmel’s Talk Show, Returns Stuff He Left After Their Breakup

I was really sad when Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman broke up in 2009, because I always found them to be hilarious and endearing together, a pairing that brought the masses humor and joy.

Sarah Silverman Goes After The Bro-Choice Vote

No one ever really asked what the bros had to say about the Republican “war on women.” Which was sad, really, because they stood to lose quite a lot of blowies if we all had to be barefoot and pregnant.
