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 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 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!
Amy Sedaris will guest star on next week’s episode of Broad City, playing an eccentric real estate broker, and from the preview, it looks like it’s going to be–to quote Jerri Blank–hilaaaaarious. You can catch Amy on Broad City next Wednesday, March 19, at 10:30 PM (ET) on Comedy Central, but in the meantime, check out this clip from the show!
UPDATED 5/7/2014: Bad news! I’m sorry to say that the Dead Boss pilot did not get picked up.
The Hollywood Reporter just posted some exciting news… Amy Sedaris has signed on to co-star in Dead Boss, a new pilot starring Jane Krakowski for Fox!
Dead Boss is a comedic mystery that finds overachiever Helen Stephens (Krakowski) wrongfully convicted of murdering her boss and forced to rely on her train wreck of a sister to prove her innocence.
Sedaris will play Mary, one of Helen’s nosy, fault-finding co-workers and the gatekeeper to their boss. She secretly loves the man and openly hates Helen.
Keep in mind, however, that this is a pilot… which means that it may or may not get picked up for a full season this fall. Of course, I’ll post anything I find out here, and fingers crossed, we’ll be seeing Amy on TV this fall!

Amy Sedaris will guest star on Lil BUB’s Special Special this Saturday (February 8) night at 9 pm ET on Animal Planet! DVR booked up for that time slot? According to TVGuide, it will air again at 11 pm. The basic premise is Lil BUB’s owner goes out for the night, and Amy has her hands full babysitting the little cat, along with her sleepover friends–which include a pony, a guinea pig and, of course, a rabbit. Watch some hilarious–and super cute–outtakes!
