Does anybody here have any idea what Sarah Silverman's ethnic background is?

Asked by eLenaLicious (822points) February 5th, 2010

I am dying to know!
She seems white…but I want to know what specific Caucasian. Or if she is mixed with anything else.

Is being Jewish an ethnicity now?

Actually it’s peculiar in that it’s as much cultural as it is religious so the short answer is yes.

In There’s Something About Mary, you will see a very young Sarah Silverman sitting at the table with Mary’s other friends, when the detective is easedropping.

Her dog’s name is Doug on the show. His real name is duck and he’s a mutt. You are more then welcome for this useless, unasked for, information.

AstroChuck's avatar

@TheLoneMonk- Yeah, that’s great and all, but what’s the ethnic background of Duck?

filmfann's avatar

He’s a Quacker.

She is Polish and Russian.

By the way to all you people that said she was Jewish, yes she is! However, being Jewish is a religion not an ethnicity!

@MBatz It can be both.
