Okay, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I have a few updates, yay!
First, Amy shares lots of fantastic tips on rabbit care and what to consider about owning a pet rabbit in this new interview on style.com. I actually have my own ancient 13-14 year-old mini rex rabbit (who happens to have a recipe named after him in Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People), and yes, bunnies absolutely are the best pets. :) And yeah, it’s true what she says–that rabbits will basically own you and destroy all your stuff, but you can’t help but to love ‘em!

Now, in totally unrelated news, Amy will be returning to two renewed shows! Amazon’s political comedy Alpha House was renewed for a second season, and Amy will once again be joining the cast–presumably reprising her role as a senator’s wife. Prime subscribers can watch the entire first season here (even though she was guest cast, Amy appeared in most epsiodes of season one).
Last but not least, Adult Swim renewed its gothic-horror-comedy/soap opera/mini series The Heart, She Holler for a third season. Amy originally joined the cast in 2013, taking over the role originally played by Kristen Schaal. She’ll be returning as Hurshe Heartshe–a sleazy, white trash woman who’s constantly plotting to take over the town.
Oh, and one more! If you missed them while they were in theaters… Amy has small parts in Chef and Ping-Pong Summer, both of which are coming to Blu-Ray/DVD next month, and they’re both really fun flicks. Check them out!
You can catch Amy Sedaris on July 9 in Scranton, PA when she headlines the Lackawanna County Library System’s Matthew F. Flynn Library Lecture Series. Free tickets for the event, which will be held at the Scranton Cultural Center, can be obtained at any Lackawanna County library or the Scranton Cultural Center box office. More information about the event can be found on the Lackawanna County Library System’s website.
You can catch Amy on Watch What Happens Live this Wednesday, May 14, at 11 pm (ET) on Bravo. Good times! Although, I have to admit… It’s going to be difficult to top the time Amy visited Watch What Happens Live and, in an odd turn of events, Bruce Jenner threw her over his shoulder like a sack of flour…
Amy Sedaris on the set of Ping Pong Summer
You can catch Amy Sedaris on the big screen in May in Chef, and then again in June in Ping Pong Summer!
Set in 1985 in Ocean City, MD, Ping Pong Summer is a coming-of-age story about a shy 13 year-old white boy who’s obsessed with ping pong and hip-hop. While on a family vacation in Ocean City, he finds an unexpected mentor in their next-door neighbor (played by Susan Sarandon).
Amy plays the shy teen’s aunt. I actually visited the set on the day that Amy was in Ocean City to film her scenes, and she’s hilarious in it. It looks like it’s going to be a really fun flick for the summertime! (By the way, you can click on the photo to view it larger.)
Ping Pong Summer premiered at Sundance to glowing reviews, and will open in select theaters and on VOD on June 6. You’ll also be able to catch it on DVD and Blu-Ray in early August. To find out more, check out the film’s official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and watch the trailer below (yep, Amy is in it!).
Amy Sedaris is scheduled to appear on Letterman this Thursday, May 1. Fingers crossed that we see Amy on The Late Show a few more times before Dave’s retirement!
You’ll be able to catch Amy on the big screen next month in Jon Favreau’s new food truck film, Chef! In the upcoming indie flick about a restaurant owner who loses his job and starts a food truck, Amy joins fellow cast members Scarlet Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Dustin Hoffman, among others. Chef releases nationwide on May 9 (though this is an indie, so I’m honestly not sure that it will be playing everywhere). Check out the video below in which Amy talks about her part in the film (she plays a publicist, and everything on her is fake), working with Favreau and Leguizamo, and doing cameo parts in movies.
