Bedford-born comedienne/actress Sarah Silverman has been tapped as the host of the 2007 MTV Movie Awards, which will take place at Universal City's Gibson Theater on June 3.
No doubt more than ready to display her unique brand of provocative comedy, Sarah Silverman has delightfully signed on to host this year's MTV Movie Awards set to be held on Sunday, June 3 live from the Gibson Theater in Universal City, California, MTV officially announced yesterday, April 26.
"Sarah's irreverent, no holds barred sarcasm and humor have made her one of the hottest up and coming comedians in the industry," the network's president Christina Norman commented. "Sarah is just the person to orchestrate the madness and keep everyone guessing about who'll be her next target."
A sassy, sharp-tongued comedian recognized for her bold yet brainy stand-up material, Silverman came to her national exposure after landing a slot on the 1993-94 season of "Saturday Night Live." She recently encountered success with her own sitcom "The Sarah Silverman Program", which had the single best debut ratings for a show aired on Comedy Central since the premiere of the animated series "Drawn Together" in 2004.
Held for the sixteenth time, the 2007 MTV Movie Awards will be executive producer by Emmy Award-winning producer Mark Burnett with Joe DeMaio directing and Kathy Flynn serving as the event producer. In addition to the award ceremony, the event will also feature a "World Wide Web Wall" that will be integrated into the live broadcast, giving a voice to all the those up-and-coming filmmakers or those who simply like to quarterback from the sidelines.
