Offbeat, irreverent, and fearless... Amy Sedaris has made her name playing ugly, freaky characters, and her humor isn't for everyone. People generally laugh out loud...or they don't. But in a way that's what Amy wants, and why her fans love her.
She's best known for her cult hit on the Comedy Channel called 'Strangers With Candy', which she made with a couple of old 'Second City' pals - Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert. That role made her fans out of everyone from David Letterman to Sarah Jessica Parker, and led to appearances on 'Sex and The City'... plus a bunch of films like 'Maid In Manhattan,' 'Shrek The Third' and 'Jennifer's Body.'
Amy has written several plays with her brother David Sedaris, famous humour writer. She's also written a few books of her own: 'I Like You' was a hilarious guide to entertaining, that gave Martha Stewart a run for her money... and was on the 'New York Times' best sellers list for 12 weeks.
Now, she's got a new book - a satirical, tongue in cheek book called 'Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People.'
