The film comprises Sarah Silverman's performance before a live audience interwoven with stylish musical numbers and backstage intrigue. Comedians Bob Odenkirk and Brian Posehn also make appearances along with Silverman's band, The Silver Men. Known as one of the funniest and most provocative people in comedy, Silverman has been compared to the legendary Lenny Bruce. Despite the current political climate, she takes on such pitch-black topics as September 11th, unwanted body hair and the Holocaust and spins them into decidedly un-PC comedic gold.
Sarah Silverman is a comedienne who doesn't just court controversy, she positively wallows in it. Memorably putting in a brief yet discomforting and highly memorable appearance in THE ARISTOCRATS, Silverman offers viewers the chance to witness her stand-up act with JESUS IS MAGIC. The show itself was taped in 2004, and is interjected with off-set skits, songs, and general goofing around from Silverman and her friends in the comedy world. As soon as Silverman takes to the stage, sacred cows come tumbling down, and continue to do so throughout the set. Race, sex, class, 9/11, rape, the Holocaust--no topic is considered untouchable for the seemingly fearless Silverman. Amazingly, she also manages to come across as likeable and even prone to bouts of insecurity ('I just want you to think I'm thin', she pleads at one point), which undoubtedly makes some of the stronger material much easier to swallow. Director Liam Lynch, who has worked with Tenacious D, and made a memorable foray into the music industry with his song 'United States Of Whatever', keeps the visual trickery to a minimum, simply shooting Silverman with a basic crew and including a few swooping shots over the heads of the audience. The skits peppered throughout bring cult TV shows such as KIDS IN THE HALL and MR SHOW to mind (Bob Odenkirk from the latter makes a brief appearance), and nicely break up the stand-up routine. Silverman never explains her humour or feels the need to put in a disclaimer to make everything seem okay, which is a device that not only makes some of the laughter a guilt-edged pleasure, it also forces the audience to think about many of the issues she is tackling, making Silverman's act enjoyable, unique, and deliciously funny.

|Philadelphia Inquirer Steven Rea Silverman is wickedly fast. Her timing kills.|
|TV Guide Ken Fox How can such awful things come out of the mouth of such a pretty girl?|
|San Francisco Chronicle Ruthe Stein Funny, original, occasionally poignant and almost all of it too dirty to repeat in a newspaper.|
|Chicago Reader J.R. Jones It's the most exciting stand-up performance I've seen in years, yet in all honesty I can't say it made me laugh that much.|
|L.A. Weekly Ernest Hardy For all its shock-driven, laugh-out-loud moments, what makes Jesus so entertaining is that it puts you in the presence of a dementedly sharp mind -- one that understands that leftist subversion doesn't have to coddle or breast-feed the choir.|
|Salon.com Stephanie Zacharek The picture consists mostly of performance footage of Silverman, which, despite the fact that it's shot on grainy, anemic-looking digital video, is a pleasure to watch.|
|Rolling Stone Peter Travers Sarah Silverman is the most outrageously funny woman alive.|
|Portland Oregonian M. E. Russell You see, in "Jesus Is Magic," Sarah Silverman plays "Sarah," a self-absorbed Jewish American Princess who also happens to be casually, cluelessly racist.|
