If it was ever a shameful secret, it's certainly out now: Comedian Sarah Silverman was a bedwetter. And not just until she was four or five. People, she was old enough to drive. This might be a sad story if it weren't for the fact that the adorably nutty star of The Sarah Silverman Program reportedly sold her memoir The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee to HarperCollins for $2.5 million (perhaps we should all wet the bed?). The book, which hits stores today, includes outrageous anecdotes, like how her father taught her to curse at age three and how she lost her virginity (twice!). Tonight, Silverman will be telling all at Barnes and Noble in Union Square (and Wednesday at Urban Outfitters in Soho) for a reading and signing. Peeing your pants from laughing so hard is strongly encouraged.
