The five year hot pants romance of funny folk Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman ended not with a gag but with a whimper.

Kimmel’s flack Lewis Kay confirmed the breakup adding, "Jimmy and Sarah have no further comment."

Both Silverman and Kimmel were fond of mocking their pairing on each other’s shows.

Earlier this year, the internet fun pair engaged in a mock megabyte duel – Sarah and Matt Damon declaring their "love" for each other on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

 Kimmel responded by declaring his man-love for Damon’s BFF, Ben Affleck.

Maybe they weren’t kidding after all.
