This is an oldie, but a goodie–always worth revisiting in October. :)
When her first book, I Like You, was released, Epicurious ran a feature on Amy about entertaining at Halloween. (Her menu includes meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn and pumpkin pie, and movie suggestions include Dracula, Frankenstein, and camp classics like Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?). You can read the whole article here: Fright Night: Amy Sedaris gives us a Halloween party to scream about
On a side note, I’ve done this menu for autumn dinner parties a few times, and Amy’s meatloaf recipe is always a huge hit! (Even though the recipe says red wine is optional, don’t leave it out. Seriously, people go bonkers for this meatloaf every time I make it.)

Amy has signed on for a recurring guest star role on Amazon’s upcoming original series, Alpha House. The series, which stars John Goodman, follows four senators who live together in a rented house in Washington, DC. According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Sedaris will portray Louise Laffer, the sweet, concerned wife of Sen. Louis Laffer.” Alpha House will be available to stream later this year on Amazon Prime. If you are a Prime member, you can already add the first season to your watchlist and check out the pilot (from last spring).
Just a reminder that Amy returns to TV tonight in Adult Swim’s horror-comedy-soap opera, The Heart, She Holler! Seasons 2 begins tonight at 12:30 a.m. (with a repeat at 4 a.m., if that conflicts with something else on your DVR!) and will air every weeknight through September 28.
Amy is scheduled to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC) next Thursday, September 12! You might remember the first time Amy appeared on Jimmy’s show–when she brought her Weekender pants along, and… well, you just have to watch…
The Awl posted an excellent interview with Amy. Read it here!
On being the godmother to Paul Dinello’s son:
“I take it very seriously. I keep a list of all the wrong things I’ve done with him. The list is long.”
