Check out this fantastic write-up on Bedford + Bowery, At Home With Amy Sedaris Is a Treat For Strangers With Candy Fans, Colbert and All–which includes a recap of the first episode (screened at the Tribeca TV Festival)… It sounds–in the words of Jerri Blank, of course–hilaaaaaaaarious. I am already dying over, “Remember the potato ships from Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People? She makes them again in the premiere, once again klutzing around with fake fingernails and getting glue all over the place.” And, “Don’t worry, Sedaris lets her freak flag fly by playing special guests such as … Patty Hogg, a scrappy Southerner who grills lamb chops in the middle of her country club and takes charge of the show when Sedaris gets depressed about a dead pet.” So good! Head over to the post for more tidbits on the show.
I’m also rolling over this clip from the Tribeca TV Festival, in which Amy explains how she used “the high test” for the writing process.
