TheDailyBeast: Stars Who Were Fired Over the Phone

Sarah Silverman

Comedian Sarah Silverman only survived a year on "Saturday Night Live" before being canned because only one of her sketches survived to dress rehearsal, and none ever aired. But her bosses added insult to injury by giving her—or her agent, rather—the news by fax. Silverman parodied the humiliating ordeal on an episode of "The Larry Sanders Show," in which she played a newcomer whose jokes were ignored by the sexist chief comedy writer.
