Comedians Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel had an entertaining television reunion Thursday, as she appeared on his talk show more than three months after they announced their breakup, and the two went over some old memories. 

It started off like a conversation from any on-again, off-again relationship – awkward.
“What have you been up to? Everything good?” Kimmel said.
“Yeah, everything’s been great. Really, really great. And you’re good?” Silverman said.

Soon though, the comedic duo got rolling, as Kimmel played a video of Silverman, 37, singing a show tune on a local television special when she was a teenager. That didn’t go over well with Silverman, who had to be bleeped over several times.  You can watch it here:

Silverman stars on comedy central on the “Sarah Silverman Program“. “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” is on ABC. 
Silverman and Kimmel, who dated for five years, also had some fun with tabloid coverage of their breakup, holding up an article that suggested Silverman has a taste for pictures of fat men. But they never said if they are back together.
The closest they got to confirming a reunion was when Kimmel said, “Anyone who wants to know what’s going on with me and Sarah, all you need to know is this.” After that, the two got up and did an intricate hand shake and high-five routine. 
Later, when his guest, rapper T.I., asked why Kimmel did not use the occasion of Silverman appearing on his show to propose, Kimmel responded by taking T.I.’s hand and asking, “Will you marry me?”
