Amy will be the VIP guest at NPR’s live show Ask Me Another on February 24, 7:30 p.m., at the Keswick Theater!
Ask Me Another is the rambunctious live show from NPR and WNYC that mixes trivia games with comedy and music to make an hour of mind-boggling fun. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites guests, celebrities, and listeners alike to take on challenges and to be serenaded by house musician Jonathan Coulton, with one contestant crowned the episode’s Ask Me Another champion. We will be taping at the wonderful Keswick theater! Our VIP for the evening will be the astounding Amy Sedaris!
Oh my gosh, you guys, I have something seriously exciting to report… TruTV has greenlit a scripted comedy created by and starring Amy! YES! It has been a long time coming… AMY IS GETTING HER OWN SHOW AGAIN! Here’s what we know so far:
Tru ordered 10 half-hour episodes of the yet-untitled series
It sounds like the show will be at least somewhat based on Amy’s bestselling books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People
Each episode will center around a theme such as “Wood!,” “Fish!” or “Grieving!”
Production begins THIS SUMMER (! – which means we could be seeing this next fall or mid-season?!)
Tru has already made a placeholder page for the show on their website, which says, “Amy Sedaris cordially invites you into her home, where she will show off diverse but necessary homemaking skills, from death-bed etiquette, to gutting a fish, to crocheting miniature sweaters for a mice infestation, to entertaining your husband’s business associates.” (This make it feel so real! It’s really happening!)
Full details here! And I’ll, of course, continue to post more info as I find out. Hooray!
Oh my gosh, I am so behind! Like, really, really behind. I really apologize for the lack of updates for the past… erm, way too long of a time. Wow. Sorry about that! In the meantime, you can catch Amy in a new go90 8-part web series, Thanksgiving. And I swear I’ll get better about keeping this site up in the next year.
