Sarah Silverman: My I Love You, America monologue helped one of Louis CK's daughters deal with his sexual misconduct scandal
Silverman said Friday night "I can't be objective" when it comes to Louis CK's return to standup comedy because "Louis is my brother, we grew up together, I’ve known him since I was 19." As part of a Paley Center for Media discussion, Silverman also said her monologue on Louis CK from last November's I Love You, America in which she asked “Can you love someone who did bad things?” helped CK's daughter. "I will say—and I hope this is OK to say—that after I did that (monologue), he called me. And he said it really helped one of his daughters to understand," said Silverman. "She showed it to him and she said, I can love you even though you did bad things. And we cried. It was a small silver lining in a very bleak story."
