This is FRESH AIR. I'm Terry Gross. My guest is comic, actor and writer Sarah Silverman. She's known for breaking taboos, often to mock sexism, racism and extremist politics and religion. She now has second thoughts about some of her earlier comedy, wondering whether, when she was trying to mock racism, she didn't understand her own limited perspective as a white person. We'll talk about that later. Silverman has broken a big personal taboo from her childhood. She was a bedwetter. It was a nightly occurrence until about the age of 16. It was especially humiliating during sleepovers with friends and the summers she spent at sleepaway camp. She wrote about that in her 2010 memoir titled "The Bedwetter." Now that book has been adapted into an off-Broadway musical. She collaborated on it with songwriter Adam Schlesinger, who co-founded the band Fountains of Wayne, wrote the title song for the movie "That Thing You Do," the songs for the rom-com "Music And Lyrics" and the TV series "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and what may be the best song that ever opened the Tony Awards ceremony, "Broadway - It's Not Just For Gays Anymore." He was one of the very early COVID victims and died April 1, 2020. The songwriter David Yazbek completed writing the songs. "The Bedwetter" officially opens June 7 at the Atlantic Theater Company in Manhattan.
