Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel tapped their on-again, off-again relationship for comic fodder Thursday night.
During Silverman’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the two shared several mock moments of awkward silence, punctuated by questions like, “Did you make sweet love to anyone while we were apart?”
Kimmel, 40, even showed off a tabloid story about the alleged reason behind their initial split. “This article says the reason we broke up is I found pictures of fat guys on your computer,” Kimmel said.
“I don’t want to use our relationship to promote my show on Comedy Central on Thursdays,” quipped Silverman, 37. “Don’t you feel like a fraud?”
“I always feel like a fraud,” Kimmel deadpanned.
The pair ended the appearance when Kimmel told the audience, “Anyone who wants to know what’s going on with me and Sarah, all you need to know is this.” They then did an elaborate comic handshake that included an elbow bump and ended with a military salute.
