Amy Sedaris Models Weekender Pants and Goes Crazy on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 31st 2011 4:19AM
Will Forte & Amy Sedaris, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Amy Sedaris pulled on a pair of Weekender pants and all bets were off on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:30AM ET on NBC). What happened next genuinely defies description, as she displayed moves and flexibility that had Jimmy Fallon falling off his chair with laughter.

Even comedian Will Forte, on the couch, had no idea how to react or what to do. Everything felt so completely inappropriate, and yet it really wasn't. What Sedaris was doing, though, was showing us the stretch, comfort and versatility of the pants.

"These work because they have an inside pant," she said striking a pose. "You know what I mean? So you wear them all weekend."

Amy Sedaris on 'The Middle': 'Move Some Metal!' (VIDEO)

The Middle, Amy SedarisAmy Sedaris guest-starred as a motivational consultant on 'The Middle' (Wed., 8:30PM ET on ABC), but came off as more of a drill sergeant when she told Frankie to "get your feet off that desk and move some metal!"

Someone's going to be fired, and it's probably going to be either Frankie or Bob, since Pete's the top seller. And Bob sleeping with the consultant may not help his case at all. How about just fire the consultant and keep all the sales people? Just sayin'...

Review: The New Adventures of Old Christine - Old Christine Meets Young Frankenstein

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 10th 2009 11:47AM
The New Adventures of Old Christine: Old Christine Meets Young Frankenstein(S05E10) When a bully is revealed at the school Little Ritchie attends, Christine is clearly worried that her son is being victimized. But while Old Christine followed the traditional sitcom formula for a bit at the beginning, by the time we reached the end of the episode, it had gone somewhere only Christine Campbell can take it.

Even better we got a surprise return, though it's something I've kind of been waiting for all season, and a hilarious guest appearance by Amy Sedaris. I can't understand why Sedaris hasn't blown up even bigger than she has. If Michael Strahan can get a big network comedy built around him, why they hell can't Amy Sedaris?

She took what could have been a pretty ordinary guest appearance, and turned it into a powerhouse performance all on its own through sheer force of will and talent.

5 Questions With: Amy Sedaris

by Angie Argabrite, posted Feb 16th 2009 5:30AM
Amy SedarisEccentric comedian Amy Sedaris is many things: lover of rabbits, baker of cupcakes, sister to comic memoirist extraordinaire David. The offbeat Sedaris kicked off our AOL TV chat by asking our shoe size (unfortunately we don't share her petite size 5, or she might've mailed us some castoffs).

The self-proclaimed "clown" has a guest arc on Kyra Sedgwick's cable hit 'The Closer,' as Brenda Lee's sister-in-law-to-be, Claire (Mon., Feb. 16 and Feb 23, 10PM on TNT).

No surprise the character is a wacky gal -- the part was written for Sedaris. She dished with us on her role, her psychic abilities ... and what the 'Sex and the City' movie sequel would look like if she had anything to do with it.

Amy Sedaris developing new sitcom

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 15th 2008 11:03AM
Strangers With CandyAmy Sedaris is creating and will write and star in a new sitcom co-produced by 20th Century Fox TV. Paul Dinello, her Strangers With Candy co-creator, is also involved. The show is being co-produced by David Letterman's Worldwide Pants.

It's sad that the third co-creator of Strangers With Candy couldn't be involved with this production, but I think Stephen Colbert is a little busy right now with that television show of his. Strangers With Candy itself was considerably risqué and I doubt whatever she's developing will be suitable for network television. Perhaps she'll go back to Comedy Central? Hopefully, it won't land on Fox where anything of quality is canceled prematurely.

I have been lucky enough to see Amy Sedaris live on two occasions (as well as watching many episodes of Strangers With Candy) and think she has buckets of talent. Whatever she's developing, I'm confident will be better than 95% of the crap on television.

Ten Colbert clips you probably haven't seen - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted May 22nd 2008 10:42AM
Young Colbert and CarellHardcore Stephen Colbert fans might take one look at this list and scoff. To them I say, "Hey, girls who live on the Colboards, chill out." This list is meant for the casual fan of The Colbert Report, who loves the show and, at most, knows Colbert's history through The Daily Show and maybe a little Strangers with Candy.

As someone who has been a fan of Colbert for about eight years, I'm here to educate, here to spread the good Word. It is the duty of a good fan -- especially one with too much time on her hands -- to change the minds of people that see Colbert just as the TV blowhard who happens to share his name.

Fine ladies of comedy in Vanity Fair

by Annie Wu, posted Mar 3rd 2008 8:03PM
Wiig, Rudolph, and FeyJenna Fischer: This is one of those "I've arrived!" moments. Seriously. There's, like, little milestones... Like, being on David Letterman for the first time and then, like, being in Vanity Fair.
Chelsea Handler: ... I knew I arrived when I got my period.
Everyone: [groans and laughter]

Yeah, I know how most of our male readers are. They like their ladies funny, smart, and painfully out of their league. Well, start lurking around the magazine stands, boys, because the upcoming Vanity Fair has a new Annie Leibovitz photo spread featuring some of the funniest ladies on the scene. The impressive list boasts Sandra Bernhard, Susie Essman, Tina Fey, Jenna Fischer, Chelsea Handler, Leslie Mann, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amy Sedaris, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and Kristen Wiig, each of them doing very typical "Hollywood bad girl" things. I especially love Maya Rudolph's hair and how Silverman manages to do Amy Winehouse better than Amy Winehouse.

Stephen Colbert: some early scenes - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 28th 2006 8:01PM

stephen colbertBefore we knew him as a correspondent on The Daily Show, Mr. Noblet on Strangers with Candy, and later the star of his own faux news analyst program, The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert was just another sketch player on shows like Exit 57 and the Dana Carvey Show. Colbert starred on the short-lived Exit 57 with Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello, who would later re-team with him for Strangers with Candy. After the jump, see a younger Colbert and his future Daily Show co-worker Steve Carell playing waiters made sick by the mere mention of food on the Dany Carvey Show, and then watch a clip from Exit 57 with Colbert, Dinello and Sedaris that I can't really describe, except to say you get to see Colbert and Dinello makeout with one another. Mmmm, that's tasty.

My Name Is Earl: Larceny of the Kitty Cat

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Oct 13th 2006 11:46AM

Randy goes artsy-fartsy(S02E04) Although I am a big fan of this show, I was never high on the Randy character. Except for a few moments here and there, I thought his non-sequitors and otherwise sheer "dumbness" brought each episode down or notch or two. That is, until last night's episode, where Randy shined like the noonday sun.

I mentioned in an earlier post where I expected to see more character development this season, and we're already seeing it with a good chunk of time devoted to Joy and Catalina. However, last night we saw the spotlight on Randy, and we learned that despite his "Baby Huey" persona on the outside, he really is a sensitive soul looking for love and respect. (Aren't we all, on some level?)

Amy Sedaris on My Name is Earl

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 9th 2006 7:03PM
amy sedarisThe lovely and hilarious Amy Sedaris will be playing a role on the October 12 episode of My Name if Earl as a love interest for Randy. Amy will play Judy, a woman who loves cats. This turns out to be somewhat of an obstacle for Randy because he's allergic to felines. Meanwhile, Earl tries to return a prize cat to Judy after sabotaging a cat show to help Joy. I personally never watch My Name is Earl, though I did watch it a bit when it first aired, and even though network sitcoms ain't m' thang I'll contend it was better than most of what's out there. Being an Amy fan, though, I just might have to tune in for this episode. Who knows, maybe I'll get drawn back into the show again.

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sedaris' street?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 31st 2006 8:59AM

Amy SedarisI would watch Amy Sedaris do anything. If she was in a music video featuring Kevin Federline and Nancy Grace, I would watch MTV all day long until the video came on. If she wanted to just go on TV and sit in a chair and eat a bowl of cereal, I would set my TiVo season pass for it. In short, I've had a crush on Amy Sedaris since...well, forever.

So that's why I really enjoyed this, her appearance on Sesame Street last week. She played Snow White, looking for Sesame Street. I have to admit though, Elmo's voice gets really annoying really quickly. Part 2 of the show is on the menu to the left, along with Sedaris' appearances on The Colbert Report, The Late Show With David Letterman, and other shows.

Does Sesame Street always have jokes about burping and cheese in shoes?

Strangers with Candy: Jerri is Only Skin Deep

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 7th 2006 8:04AM

jerri blank(S01E06)

Orlando (Jerri's Filipino friend): You should run for Homecoming queen, Jerri.

Jerri: What? Are you joking? I don't think I'm what boys consider a "traditional beauty."

Orlando: In my country you'd be a real queen.

Jerri: Yeah, well, that's because your country is ruled by monkeys.

Orlando: Jerri, that's an ugly thing to say.

Jerri: Jeez, why are you people so sensitive about your resemblance to monkeys? They're adorable!

This episode begins with a game of dodgeball and Jerri having to sit out the game because of uneven teams. Also, it seems her teammates would rather have a slow girl with two broken arms play with them rather than Jerri. Despite not actually playing, Jerri manages to get hit with the ball, prompting Yasmine, a popular girl, to remark that Jerri is probably used to balls smacking against her face.
