Catch Amy Sedaris in an online-only episode of Andy Barker, P.I.
Julia mentioned previously that Amy Sedaris would be appearing in a guest role on Andy Barker, P.I. Well, Julia wasn't lying, but you won't see the episode on TV. Instead, click on over to NBC's site to see "The Lady Varnishes," in which Sedaris plays a sex-crazed older woman who spent some time in the slammer. Funny, that sounds an awful lot like her Jerri Blank character from Strangers with Candy. The two characters do share similar traits, but who the heck cares, I'd give my left leg to see Sedaris in anything (and that statement will mean more to you after you've watched the episode).
Also, Ed Asner appears in the episode as a bad guy. Sedaris herself only appears in a couple scenes, but don't worry, the whole episode is pretty damn funny. My favorite part was the Asian photographer who changed his last name to "Leibovitz" to avoid prejudice, because nobody hates a Jew.
Andy Richter himself appeared in a couple episodes of Strangers with Candy, and is married to Sarah Thyre, who played Coach Wolf on the series.
