Sedaris appeared as Hurshe Heartshe in the Adult Swim comedy series The Heart, She Holler (2013–2014), as Princess Carolyn in the Netflix animated comedy series BoJack Horseman (2014–2020), and as Mimi Kanasis in the Netflix sitcom Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (2015–2020). She received further critical acclaim as the creator and star of the TruTV surreal comedy series At Home with Amy Sedaris (2017–present), which earned her two nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series.[2]

Sedaris appeared in various films, including Maid in Manhattan (2002), School of Rock (2003), Elf (2003), Bewitched (2005), Chicken Little (2005), Shrek the Third (2007), Jennifer's Body (2009), Puss in Boots (2011), Chef (2014), Ghost Team (2016), Handsome (2017), and The Lion King (2019).

Early life[edit]

Sedaris was born in Endicott, New York, to Sharon Elizabeth (née Leonard) and Louis Harry "Lou" Sedaris,[3] and grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her five siblings. Her father is of Greek descent and her mother was an Anglo-American.[4] Her family was Greek Orthodox.[5] Her older brother is author David Sedaris.

As a teenager, Sedaris worked at her local Winn-Dixie supermarket. She would make fake announcements over the loudspeaker, and the head cashier would threaten to fire her. After work, she egged the cashier's car in protest. Later, as a cocktail waitress at Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago, Illinois, she was fired for being five minutes late. In retaliation, "I took [the manager's] keys, and I threw them in the snow. I heard he found them in the spring."[6] In David Sedaris' book Me Talk Pretty One Day, he noted that Amy would often assume characters to play pranks on her family.

Career[edit]

Television[edit]

A former member of Chicago-based Second City and Annoyance Theatre comedy troupes, Sedaris' first major foray into television began in 1995 on the Comedy Central sketch series Exit 57, which also starred Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello.[7] 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.[7]

Beginning in 1999, Sedaris played Jerri Blank, a middle-aged high school student, in the Comedy Central comedy series Strangers with Candy.[8] The series, which she co-wrote with Dinello and Colbert, was based on Sedaris's impression of 1970s-era motivational speaker Florrie Fisher.[9] The show ran for three seasons and garnered a cult following after its run. In 2005, a film adaptation was released, acting as a prequel to the series.[10]

Sedaris went on to make numerous guest appearances on television programs, including Just Shoot Me!
