Sarah Silverman once revealed that she lost her virginity to Kevin Brennan – the former SNL writer who is currently facing criticism for making fun of Matthew Perry’s death.
The former “Saturday Night Live” writer was 30 when he started dating Silverman, then 19, according to a clip he posted on his “Misery Loves Company” podcast titled “Kevin Brennan TAKES Sarah Silverman’s VIRGINITY & BREAKS Her HEART“ shared.’
“I lost my virginity to another comedian when I was 19,” Silverman said in a 2015 interview with the YouTube show The Conversations.
“I was so in love with him but…he was 30…I was madly in love with him and I meant nothing to him…so he dumped me and I was so devastated,” the comedian shared.
Silverman revealed intimate details about the sexual encounter that took place in 1989.

Brennan, now 63, has been relatively forgotten since his time on SNL’s Weekend Update but has been in the spotlight since he joked about Perry’s death over the weekend
“I thought it was great, I couldn’t believe it!” I thought, “This is sex? Oh my God!” And then he pulled back the sheets and there was blood and my heart stopped and I thought, “That came from you!” and he was like, “No, that’s not the case.”
She added: “I thought I would never fall in love again and I remember my mother saying, ‘Isn’t this experience stopping you from falling in love again?’
‘I still love him. “I still know him,” Silverman remarked.
Despite her loving words for Brennan, he referred to her as a “wh*re” in a 2021 episode of his podcast where he discussed their romantic relationships.
“It’s so pathetic of her to just say, ‘Let me go out with another comedian,'” Brennan said in a profanity-laced rant. “I’m so glad I was first on that damn whore’s train.”
Brennan, now 63, has been relatively forgotten since his time on SNL’s Weekend Update, which ended in 2000, but has been in the spotlight since he joked about Perry’s death over the weekend.
He tweeted a link to TMZ’s coverage of the actor’s death on Saturday with the caption, “DROWNED IN A HOT TUB.” HAHAHAHA.”
Brennan then responded to a tweet of his comments with the caption, “Ex-SNL writer and comedian Kevin Brennan mocks Matthew Perry’s death.”
“I wasn’t making fun of it. I just thought it was funny. But I love it when junkies die,” he wrote.
In response to a user’s question to Kevin, “Why is it funny to drown in a hot tub?” he replied, “Because it’s not very deep.”
Brennan faced a wave of criticism for his vile comments, but refused to back down and continued to make jokes.
On Monday, he took to Twitter again and asked, “Am I trending yet?”
He also shared a news report about the controversy with the headline: “Comedy writer convicted of cruel tweet making fun of Matthew Perry’s death.”
Brennan was one of the writers and correspondents for SNL’s Weekend Update from 1999 to 2000. He was “passed over” after being in the running to become presenter following Colin Quinn’s departure.

The Chicago native is estranged from his younger brother, comedian Neal Brennan, known as the co-creator of Comedy Central’s critically acclaimed Chappelle’s Show.
While Kevin has fallen into relative obscurity over the past few decades, his brother has written for several shows and released a comedy special on Netflix.
Kevin is known for talking about other comedians in his podcasts and stand-up appearances, including his brother, whom he has repeatedly accused of stealing jokes.
“I hate my own brother,” he has said of Neal in the past. “I have five brothers…I can afford to hate a few.”
People reacted in outrage, with one person commenting: “That’s exactly why I said you would do it, you’re wasting space!!” Anything for attention, even if it’s negative. Enjoy your 90 seconds of fame.’
Another person wrote: “To remind people what a loser you are?” Yes, yes you are,” while a third reiterated: “He’s literally the only reason anyone finds out who you are , lol, so Matthew gets the last laugh.”
A fourth agreed, saying: “For all the wrong reasons.” Who the hell says they “love it when junkies die”? Read the room.
“You should update your bio and just say…” terrible person. I hope your podcast company drops you and all four listeners who are likely listening to your show.”
The Los Angeles County coroner has classified Matthew Perry’s cause of death as “deferred,” pending final toxicology test results.
An LAPD source told the New York Post: “We responded to the 1800 block of Blue Sail Rd at 4:10 this afternoon for a death investigation of a man.” “He was in his 50s.”
Iconic Character: Matthew starred as Chandler Bing on the NBC hit series “Friends” for ten seasons from 1994 to 2004.
No drugs were found at the scene and authorities have ruled out foul play.
Sources said antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications were found at the property, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) pills.
Friends have said the star appeared “tired” in his final days, and in his latest post on Instagram, which he shared earlier this week, he posted pictures of himself in his pool.
The caption read: ‘Oh, water so warm swirling around makes you feel good?’ I’m Mattman.’
Perry, who played Chandler Bing on the NBC hit series “Friends,” has struggled with substance abuse throughout his life and said he wanted to help others struggling with a similar situation.
During an appearance on the “Q” podcast with Tom Power at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema in Toronto in November 2022, he said that “the most important thing” he wants to be remembered for is “that he wants to help people” battling addiction battle.
“The best thing for me is when an alcoholic or drug addict comes up to me and says, ‘Will you help me?'” he said. “I can say yes and follow up and do it.”
“When I die, I don’t want friends to be the first thing mentioned. I want that to be the first thing mentioned, and I’ll spend the rest of my life proving that.”
