Amy Sedaris is a prolific actress, author, comedian and rabbit educator. She has appeared often on screens both large and small. She is the co-creator, with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello, of the cult hit comedy series “Strangers with Candy,” and she is half of the Obie-winning “Talent Family” playwright team (with her brother David). Also, she is the author of two New York Times best-selling books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People.
Sedaris’ new comedy series, “At Home with Amy Sedaris,” premiered on truTV on Oct. 24, 2017. In this series co-created by Sedaris and Paul Dinello, Sedaris shows off her diverse but necessary homemaking skills. These skills range from creating popsicle stick buddies and gutting a fish, to making raisin necklaces and entertaining businessmen. Each episode revolves around a traditional theme, such as entertaining the grieving, the craft of love-making, and cooking without pots and pans. As always, Sedaris will use her unique expertise to entertain guests, demonstrate her know-how by preparing meals, and exhibit her can-do spirit by attempting to work out personal issues. The first season of “At Home with Amy Sedaris” consisted of a cavalcade of guest stars including Scott Adsit, Rachel Dratch, Jane Krakowski, David Pasquesi, Stephen Colbert, Justin Theroux and many more. The show’s first season received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination in the category of Outstanding Variety Sketch Series. “At Home with Amy Sedaris” is currently in production of its second season, which was announced earlier this year.
In addition, Sedaris lends her voice to Princess Carolyn in the Netflix’s original TV series “BoJack Horseman,” which returned for a fifth season in September 2018 and was renewed for a sixth. Also, she has made many guest appearances on television series, such as “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Broad City,” “30 Rock,” “The Good Wife,” “Rescue Me,” “Monk,” “Just Shoot Me!,” “Sex and the City,” “My Name Is Earl,” “The Closer,” “The Middle,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “Raising Hope” and “Sesame Street.” Also, she was a regular guest on the “Late Show with David Letterman.”
