“Sarah Kate Silverman,” as opener Kyle Dunnigan introduced her, performed a rare stand up set at the Pearl at the Palms on Saturday night. Dunnigan, who warmed up the crowd coming out as a character named Craig who was less stand up and more awkwardly funny character, had the crowd laughing before he went into a spot-on impression of Bill Maher (who happens to be a Pearl resident headliner returning in early September) ending “Craig’s” stage time and giving Kyle a few minutes to finish his set as himself.
Sarah Silverman took the stage with some Vegas observational humor before launching into a set that started in true Silverman style — a strange conversation about searching for porn on her phone and watching it obsessively — before calling out a female fan who seemed to have a little too much fun at the bar before the show. Silverman eventually went back to her story, telling the eager audience member, “Let’s get back to being a lady and listening to me talk about porn,” before moving on to the rest of her set.
