Just when you think Sarah Silverman can’t possibly do anything else to shock you, she goes ahead and does just that.
In a must-see interview with Conan O’Brien, Silverman stepped out in full Nazi garb as Adolf Hitler to the sound of thunderous applause, addressing the recent “unfavorable” comparisons to GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
“Don’t get me wrong, Conan, I agree with a lot of what he says. A lot. Like 90% of what he says, I’m like this guy gets it,” Silverman, erm, Hitler said. “But it’s just, I don’t like the way he says it. It’s crass, you know?”
“What kind of person talks about his penis size on national television?” Der Fuhrer asked. “I famously have a micropenis, that’s what makes a tyrant.”
“Hitler, I am very sorry to hear about your micropenis,” O’Brien said, referring to the recently unearthed medical reports that claim Hitler not only had an extremely petit penis but also just one testicle.
“If I had a gold filling every time I heard that,” Silverman quipped to the sound of gasps and muffled laughter. “Ohhhh, I can’t believe Hitler went there,” she mocked the audience.
But really, Hitler was there to clear the air about Trump. “All these comparisons to Trump, it’s like, it bums me out, you know what I mean? Sometimes I watch him and I’m like, ‘Is that how people see me?’ And I have to be honest, Trump, he’s starting to make me rethink some of the things I’ve done.”
Really? Nope. Hitler added, “Ah, who am I kidding? I got to be me!”

Will Woody Allen soon be on Twitter?
During an appearance on “Conan” with Conan O’Brien to promote her role in Allen’s latest film, “Irrational Man,” Emma Stone told the audience how she described and later showed Twitter to Woody Allen.
Stone, who unfortunately doesn’t have her own Twitter account, explained to Allen that, “It’s a 140 characters, and you kind of write these sentences and I don’t really understand the point unless you’re a musician and you’re advertising a gig or you’re a comedian and you’re doing one-liners or something.”
Anyway, we won’t give the punchline of the story away, but it’s a truly Woody Allen-worthy tale.
Major faux pas, Lisa Kudrow.
The former “Friends” actress, who stars in the new Seth Rogen/Zac Efron comedy “Neighbours,” got into an awkward spot with Conan O’Brien, after he found out that she “mispaced” his invitation to her son’s bar mitzvah.
“You and I have been friends for a long time and then I happen to find out that your son was bar mitzvahed and I wasn’t invited,” the host complained during an appearance by Kudrow on Conan.
But have no fear Conan — you weren’t the only one. No one was invited. Not even his mother. It was, as she called it, a “drive-by bar mitzvah,” courtesy of Chabad.
What is a drive-by bar mitzvah, you may ask? Well, it starts with a 15-year-old boy hanging out at the mall. Kudrow explained that her son was approached by men from Chabad, who asked if he was Jewish (you know the ones). When he explained that he was half Jewish (on his mother’s side), they asked if he had been bar mitzvahed. He said no. They offered to do it right then and there. He agreed. Presto, drive-by bar mitzvah!
According to the interview, the men put tefilin and a yarmulke on Kudrow’s son, had him recite a prayer and sent him home with a picture for his mother (and proof, I expect).

Smoking crack isn’t usually taken to be a civic leadership strategy but hey, it’s working out for Rob Ford.
That’s what Seth Rogen told Conan O’Brien, anyway. On Tuesday night’s episode of “Conan” the actor suggested that Detroit mayor Mike Dugan take a page from Ford’s book, since Toronto seems to be doing pretty well and Detroit, not so much.
“What’s weird is like, you go to Toronto and and it’s like it’s really a beautiful city that is very well-running, a lot better than a lot of non-mayor crack smoking cities that I’ve been to in my life,” Rogen said.
This isn’t just idle chatter, either. Rogen and writing partner Evan Goldberg have reportedly sold a movie about a crack-smoking politician, although they deny that it’s based on Ford specifically. Still, the Ford scandal didn’t hurt any — at least not for a couple of comedians making hay.
Zosia Mamet recently stopped by Conan to answer the question that fans of her HBO show “Girls” have been asking since the series debuted: Is dating in your 20s really as bad as the show makes it look?
“It’s a little worse,” Mamet replied. “It’s pretty f**king bad.” On Girls, Mamet plays Shoshanna, the fresh-faced, overeager “Sex and the City”-obsessed Jewish cousin of the effortlessly cool Jessa. Shoshanna’s most recent romantic excursions have gone incredibly badly, as with her last crush, Matt, a friend from summer camp who refuses to take her virginity. This week, the extent of her love life was watching helplessly as Jessa used Shoshanna’s apartment as a place for a torrid fling with her ex. But despite all that, Zosia thinks the actual dating scene is even worse.
