Early life[edit]

Sedaris was born in Endicott, New York[3] to Sharon Elizabeth (née Leonard) and Louis Harry "Lou" Sedaris,[4] and grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina with her five siblings: Lisa, David, Gretchen, Tiffany, and Paul. Her father was of Greek descent and her mother was Anglo-American.[5] Her family was Greek Orthodox Christian.[6]

As a teenager, Sedaris' first job was at the local Winn-Dixie supermarket where she would make fake announcements over the loudspeaker.[7][8] She graduated from Jesse O. Sanderson High School in Raleigh.[9] Sedaris moved to Chicago and was an alumnus of Second City and Annoyance Theatre. There she also worked as a waitress at Zanies Comedy Club.[10] In her brother David's book Me Talk Pretty One Day, he noted that Amy would often assume characters to play pranks on her family.



In the late 1980s, she was hired to perform with Second City's touring company. It was there where she met Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert with whom she often collaborated later in her career. Dinello and her did not get along with Colbert at first,[11] – but they became close friends while touring together, discovering that they shared a similar comic sensibility.[12] Sedaris' first major foray into television began in 1995 on the Comedy Central sketch series Exit 57; alongside Colbert and Dinello. For her performance she was nominated for the 17th CableACE Award for Best Comedy Actress and the series was nominated for Best Comedy Series. It ran for a total of two seasons.[13]

Beginning in 1999 Sedaris played Jerri Blank, a middle-aged woman who goes back to high school in the Comedy Central comedy series Strangers with Candy. The series, which she co-wrote with Dinello and Colbert was based on Sedaris's impression of 1970s-era motivational speaker Florrie Fisher. The show ran for three seasons. In 2005, a film adaptation was released, acting as a prequel to the series.[citation needed]

Sedaris went on to make numerous guest appearances on television programs, including Just Shoot Me! (2001), Sex and the City (2002–2003), Monk (2002–2003), Wonder Showzen (2005), My Name Is Earl (2006), Sesame Street (2006), Rescue Me (2007), The Closer (2009), The New Adventures of Old Christine (2009), The Middle (2010), Raising Hope (2011–2014), and The Good Wife (2012). She also hosted the series Film Fanatic on Trio.

Sedaris' talk show appearances include Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and WTF with Marc Maron. During an appearance on Chelsea Lately, she gave host Chelsea Handler a presentation on vaginal hygiene using a plush vagina created by fashion designer Todd Oldham.
