Strangers With Candy aired on Comedy Central for an exhilarating but brief bout at the turn of the millennium. The show was your typical high school melodrama, only starlet Amy Sedaris played a 46 year old recovered drug addict returning to school as a freshman. Sedaris intoxicated us as Jerri Blank with her fluttering lazy eye, underbite, turtleneck, and “fatty suit” induced F.U.P.A. She co-created and starred in the show alongside Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert, and together they made a cult classic T.V. program full of raunchy humor and taboo subjects. Read More

This fun new film opens today, June 6th! Written and directed by indie darling Michael Tully, Ping Pong Summer will charm your socks off and make you yearn for summer camp, popsicles, old school rhymes, and the feel-good style of 1985. The colors are crazy, the clothes are boss, and emotions (and hormones) run high. The narrative centers around Rad Miracle (played by Marcello Conte), a 13-year-old kid whose life is built around his obsessions. Namely, hip-hop and Ping Pong.
To say that the film features an all-star cast would be an understatement. Read More

I have loved Amy Sedaris ever since I read The Book of Liz, a play of hers in which a nun with a perspiration problem finds herself by making cheese balls. The veteran BUST cover girl fascinates me, from her perky humor to her real cultural impact (she supports animal rights and has outspokenly defended her choice not to have kids). Even in her Downy laundry detergent commercial, she is hilarious and complex, dressing like a 1950s housewife to do laundry with the assistance her male intern. Read More

Amy Sedaris, one of our favorite comedians, makes a hilarious appearance in the latest episode of F to 7th, a "homoneurotic web series" from the mind of Ingrid Jungermann. Sedaris plays Kate, Ingrid's wildly inappropriate aunt. The episode, "Family" is full of cringe-worthy one-liners that Sedaris delivers with unapologetic gusto. Watching it, you want to crawl under the table on Jungermann's behalf, but feel compelled to keep your eyes glued to the train wreck of a lunch date. Read More

Is there anything that Amy Sedaris can’t do? She is obvs a beautiful, talented, crafty, hilarious broad, (and two-time BUST cover lady). But now she is adding fabric designer to her list of accomplishments. Sedaris collaborated with Windham Fabrics on her very own line of textiles, and they are as colorful and quirky as the woman herself. The line is set to debut in January 2013, so we all can look forward to crafting items cut from Sedaris cloth in the New Year.
Windham has long been known for offering out-there prints, and Sedaris' are not for the meek. Read More

If you’re a fan of Amy Sedaris’ crafting books, you will love Cathy Callahan’s new book, Vintage Craft Workshop: Fresh Takes on Twenty-Four Classic Projects from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Sedaris herself even said "One of the best craft books I've seen. This book makes me jealous."
Its organization is unlike any other crafting book that I have read. She provides historical context for each of the 24 crafts, showing where the inspiration came from, as well as insight on the historic and fantastic “Crafty Ladies” behind them. Read More
