I dare you to watch this clip and tell me Amy Sedaris isn’t a genius.
I don’t know what ‘F To 7th’ is, but suddenly I’m hooked. My favorite comedic troublemaker is up to no good with her guest-starring turn in this nascent web series. Now, if I had a web series, it would basically be exactly this, Amy Sedaris sitting around in an ill-fitting Lacoste Polo and jeans talking about fish tacos and her quiet, depressed, girlie husband. It really gets good when we find out that Amy’s character hasn’t had sex with her hubby in three years—and she drives a Subaru. Uh-huh. We all know what that means.
‘F To The 7th’ is directed by Ingrid Jungermann. Watch episode 1 (with Michael Showalter, after the jump).
There’s more Amy today, everyone! Last week we shared a video of the extra funny lady on Jimmy Fallon. Here, she’s sitting by the fire with two young lovelies from Rookie Mag. The teen duo teach Amy how to make Voodoo S’mores, but the real treat comes when we hear Amy chat about her life. She doesn’t have a cell phone, a Facebook profile, or a Twitter account. She’s always wanted to be a country singer and she didn’t go to college. Oh, and her bunny Dusty makes a cameo appearance too.
P.S.-I couldn’t stop staring at the hand painted trompe l’oeil cabinets behind Amy. That looks like the handiwork of her good friend and fellow crafter, Todd Oldham, don’t you think?
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a broad that knows how to milk a dick. ‘Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People’ came out way back in 1845, but that doesn’t stop Amy Sedaris from still hawking it every chance she gets. She knows what pays the bills. And besides, if it means I get to see her fabulous face on network television, I’m all for it.
Amy shows the audience how to make her famous ‘Crafty Candle Salad’. It involves some pineapple rings, a banana, and some mayonnaise. Of course, all these sexually suggestive ingredients make Jimmy a little nervous. He giggles like a school girl as his banana limps over like a cut daisy wilting in the sun. Amy isn’t impressed, but still, she tries to comfort him (haven’t we all been there?). That’s when we get the golden nugget: Amy actually gets a “whiskey dick” past the NBC censors. Or maybe I’m just old school? Can you say ‘whiskey dick’ on tv nowadays?
