Amy Sedaris collaborates with Fishs Eddy for ‘I Like You’ line

Amy Sedaris for Fishs EddySuper exciting news! Amy has teamed up with the ridiculously fun, New York-based dishware purveyor Fishs Eddy to release a line of kitchenware and entertaining supplies! The [cheerful and, of course, adorable] collection, entitled ‘I Like You,’ features juice glasses, tumblers, glass bowls, dish towels, a platter, paper plates and more with patterns taken from Amy’s 2013 fabric line. The collection is already available online at Fishs Eddy’s website (although I don’t think everything has been listed yet at time of writing–I know there’s at least still a popcorn bowl yet to come). I believe it will hit stores next month, though I’m fairly certain that it’s already out at Fishs Eddy’s NYC store. Check it out!

Amy on Jimmy Fallon

Just a heads up, Amy is scheduled to appear on Jimmy Fallon next Friday night, August 22 (11:30/10:30C on NBC)!

Amy on rabbits; returning to Alpha House and The Heart, She Holler

amy sedaris rabbit careOkay, 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!

Amy in 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!).
