She’s a top headliner in satire and subversive comedy now, but back in 1996 Sarah Silverman was still growing her career when she was cast as "ET" hunter Rain Robinson in the Voyager two-parter “Future’s End.”

The 1970 native of Bedford, N.H.,  had just come off one year as a writer-castmember of Saturday Night Live and then HBO’s cult fave Mr. Show. Along with TV guest spots in series from Seinfeld to Monk, she has guested on two of Comedy Central’s celebrity roasts and headlined her own Sarah Silverman Program there for three seasons, gaining an Emmy nomination. Most recently, she appeared in the indie film Take This Waltz, and her comic memoir The Bedwetter made the New York Times Bestseller List.
