The older sister of edgy female comic Sarah Silverman, Laura Silverman first caught the attention of television viewers with her memorable vocal performance as the droll receptionist also named Laura on the popular animated sitcom Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist. Later, after appearing in the films Half Baked and State and Main as well as on numerous television shows including Bette, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Home Movies, and The Comeback, the senior Silverman sister would join her younger sister briefly onscreen in the 2005 standup feature Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic. More animation work was quick to follow as Silverman voiced characters in Freak Show and Metalocalypse, and in 2007 she joined her little sister on the surprise Comedy Central hit The Sarah Silverman Program. In 2007, Silverman could be seen opposite Ian Gomez in the independent comedy Love Shack.
