Sarah Silverman found love virtually amid the pandemic, but there were no dating apps involved! The 49-year-old comedian appears on Thursday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she opens up about how returning to her love of video games while in quarantine led to romance.
“As the world was shutting down, I thought I should start playing video games again. It just made sense,” she quips, adding that she got very into Call of Duty: WWII.
What have I become

“This guy, who I knew peripherally — we have mutual friends and stuff, we knew each other a bit — he direct messaged me on Twitter, he goes, ‘I’ll play with you online,'” she explains. “We were both quarantining. So every night, I was in New York, so at 7 we banged the pots and pans out on the fire escape. It really became a group primal scream. It was actually kind of beautiful to be in New York at that time. Then at 7:05, put my headset on and I kill Nazis with this guy. I mean, yadda, yadda, yadda, we’re boyfriend and girlfriend.”
Silverman, who has relocated, shares that her new man has come out to be closer to her.
“He came out here and so he’s living out here, and it’s great,” she says. “And we make sweet love. I feel like I’m jinxing it by talking about it on Ellen, but I can’t help myself.”
