Interview: Talking Porn and Comedy With Silvia Saige

This article originally ran in the October 2015 issue of AVN magazine. Click here to see the digital edition. Comedy and porn have gone hand in hand over the years, starting with the mother of all adult films, Deep Throat, and followed by what many consider the greatest adult film ever produced, The Opening of Misty Beethoven. And the many adult performers who have entered the industry with a comedy background or have gone on to pursue stand-up—notably Tommy Pistol, Ron Jeremy, Evan Stone and Rebecca Bardoux—also highlights the relationship between comedy and porn. Adult newcomer Silvia Saige is another performer out to prove she can tickle not only funny bones but also libidos. “I’ve been doing it for about two and a half years,” said Saige, who worked for more than eight years in the medical field as an X-ray technician. When Saige realized she wanted more out of her small Midwestern town life, she made the move to the West Coast to pursue her dream of doing stand-up. “I said, ‘Fuck it. I’m going to go for it.’ I kind of had to take a leap of faith and leave a lot behind, and take some bigger risks.” Now living in Las Vegas, Saige performs at many of the local clubs and also regularly at the Ontario Improv in Ontario, California. As for how porn came into the mix, Saige says it was strictly a financial decision. “Really money, to be honest. I had a girlfriend [who] started doing porn and she loved it. She made great money and I thought, ‘Well hell. I could do that.’ I was working all the time out in L.A. to make ends meet and I was working so much I wasn’t doing comedy. I didn’t have the time for it, I guess.” With the money Saige was earning in porn, she was able to devote more time to her comedy and currently performs stand-up under her stage name, Silvia Saige. While IAFD currently has just one performing credit for Saige as of this writing, she already has shot for powerhouse studios such as Brazzers, Naughty America, Bang Bros. and Porn Pros. She also has an upcoming appearance in an HBO film, Wicked Needs, set to be released later this year. Pretty impressive stats for someone who had no intention of entering porn. “It was never something I thought about. [Laughs] I think you have those general thoughts about porn, but never would I have thought a year ago that I was going to be doing porn. It was never a thought of mine.” Saige describes her act as shocking, sexual, and twisted in a good way. She counts Amy Schumer as a comedy hero who has paved the way for women to go a little darker and edgier, Saige also intends on sticking around with porn for a while. “Maybe get my shot at hosting the AVN Awards and then go after chasing comedy. Tie it all together and maybe you’ll see me on Saturday Night Live one day. Anything that I can try and points me in a new direction, that’s the way I’m going.” To book Silvia Saige, go to 101Modeling.com.
