'At Home With Amy Sedaris' is hilarious!

Her new show debuted this week on TruTV, and it's surprisingly brilliant. The writing and acting is top-notch stuff. The best she's been since Strangers With Candy. The show is like a cross between Martha Stewart and Pee Wee's Playhouse. I hope it's a hit for her.

She’s 56. I guess this is her last gasp. On TrueTV. The only place I’ve heard about this show is on Datalounge. Does TrueTV not advertise? Is that considered uncool?

The problem with a great deal of Amy Sedaris' material is that it always seems like a good idea, poorly executed. The idea of the knife grinding skit is funny. The actual skit misses the mark. Same with the potato boat skit. I don't know if the problem is that they don't have enough rehearsal time, or if they don't have a good "third eye" to edit and shape the skit. One of the problems with comedians who write their own material is that they think every word is comedy gold.

Just because her style is unique doesn't mean it's above the unwashed masses' head. Different strokes for different folks. (Cue the Willis and Arnold jokes) Her style of comedy feels tedious to me after a bit but is fun in small portions.

Some of her fans seem so dismissive if people don't like her work. Reminds me of those hipsters in college who only followed bands that no one had ever heard of and who sneered at those who didn't 'get' their music taste. Why can't people just enjoy different types of humor?

by Anonymousreply 7411/01/2017

Amy Sedaris is very talented but this is relatively lame. The whole mean-spirited Baby Boomer sensibility that underpins it (the dark side of suburbia, pushing quasi-vaudeville gags to lethal extremes, the manic sarcasm) goes all the way back to the original Saturday Night Live over four decades ago. I find myself reacting to stuff like this like I used to react to Milton Berle and Don Rickles as a child -as if it's strictly for old farts. Time for something new.

by Anonymousreply 7511/01/2017

I thought the underlying plot of the "Cooking for one" episode was funny. Amy goes from being radically single at the beginning of the show to falling in (unrequited) love with a Greek and devoting the remaining craft and meal segments to honoring Greek culture.

It's not all gold, but it's different enough from current offerings and I like Amy enough that I'll watch. I appreciate the absurdity, even with the dated, hot glue joke mentality. Pee-Wee's Playhouse is a fair comparison.

Episodes are available on the truTV app, if you have cable or login credentials.

R74 People who criticize entertainers and artists can stay clear of criticism themselves by not criticizing. If you don't get Amy Sedariss' sketches, great, but people are categorically saying the clip isn't funny, when it's just not their brand of humor. To me it's funny -- maybe as one poster said, the execution is not as good as the idea, but to me the idea is the important part. That being, said, I'm a complete fraud because I criticize entertainers on here all the time. In fact, I think I;m full of shit. Oh well.

Big thanks to whoever mentioned Get Krack!n. Searching for it led me to their previous outing, The Katering Show - all the episodes are on YouTube - and I thought it was very funny. It has a lot of jokes about food allergies, which Dataloungers ought to love. Currently downloading Get Krack!n, hope it's as good.

I believe all the episodes of Posh Nosh, another cooking show parody, are also on YouTube. If you haven't seen it, it's pretty good. A lot more deadpan.

I have been a fan for 20 years. The one issue I have seen with Amy that I do not like is that she readily falls into making fun of an actor on the show she is making. I think it’s is usually a cheap laugh but she takes it to the point if hurting the actor. For example, on Kimmie Schmidt, she calls carol kane’s Character “stoop crone”. I hope she can avoid that pitfall as she makes this series.

R153 = Nutmeg

I wish she would do more Strangers with Candy. They could have Jeri be a guidance counselor giving screwed up advice. Tammy Littlenut and a couple of others could be teachers or parents of kids attending Flatpoint.

It's a little uneven but the second season will probably be better if Strangers with Candy is any indicator.

Season 2 premiers next Tuesday Feb. 19 at 10. They just showed a preview and the famous guests this season include Anna Gasteyer, Richard Kind, Matthew Broderick, and UGH... Susan Fucking Sarandon. I am conflicted about watching because of that last one but I might just skip that episode because I love Amy so much.

Amy and Susan Fucking Sarandon are very good friends. Have been for years.

Didn’t she do this book back in the early 2000s? Because my entire family regifted it for a decade or more

The show is hilarious this season. Love Amy's stalker and the takeoff on The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

Amy's playing Cat Cora? What did I miss?

by Anonymousreply 16803/12/2019

Man, I really wanted to like this. I only saw one episode -- where Rose Byrne plays her crazy stalker fan. It was so well done and, yet, I didn't actually laugh out loud once.

I love Amy -- loved Strangers with Candy and all her nutty Letterman appearances over the years. I think Rose Byrne is wonderful. I ADORE the screwball Cole Escola. It should have been right up my alley. It's like everything works... conceptually, but the execution falls flat for me.

Maybe it's so broad and sketch'y that it would need an actual live audience to work? Imagine how odd I Love Lucy would have been if they'd done that show without a studio audience.

I don't know, maybe I need to give it another shot? I will say, I think it was kind of smart (and defied my expectations) to have Amy actually play the straight man.

I enjoyed it, but I don't remember laughing out loud all that much. It's much dryer than that, which works I think. It's fun to spend time in her kitschy world and the character work and set design is always good. Might not be must see TV, but it's pleasant entertainment.

I don't find her funny at all. There's a coldness and a kind of reveling in meaninglessness that doesn't do it for me.

Tried watching the first episode of season 2. It just isn't very funny.

by Anonymousreply 17203/15/2019

r172, try watching the most recent episode, it was great.

by Anonymousreply 17303/15/2019

It was okay the first season but the second season is almost unwatchable. I feel sorry for her.

by Anonymousreply 17405/03/2019

Not much. She hasn’t been funny since SWC.

The Thanksgiving episode was great, too

by Anonymousreply 18205/03/2019

I LOVE Chassie Tucker! My new favorite drag character.

Also this excellent line from the last episode: "Crafting is the art of taking things no one wants and turning them into something people feel bad about throwing away!" That really sums it up.

Michael Shannon playing Christopher Walken in "Pulp Fiction" was great fun. I was so surprised he made a guest appearance.

I want about 2/3 of the set & props of this show. All those cake stands in candy colors were enviable. I also love all her ric-a-rac trimmed aprons.

^ I like the one where Chassie's grifter relatives come to visit her

by Anonymousreply 18405/03/2019

This season is much better than the first one. For her Halloween episode, she did a take-off of Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte and she played the Agnes Moorehead character. The last episode was a take-off of The Birds.

She better be nominated for an Emmy next year. She's much more deserving that Kate McKinnon on SNL.

R184---YES! That episode had LOTS OF CHASSIE!

Chassie was priceless in the season 2 finale - a Key Largo take-off where she channels Clare Trevor.

Chassie resembles Elizabeth Montgomery.

A bit OT, I think Amy is very lonely. Has she ever been in a LTR? Sure, she has close male friends but has she ever had a long term male partner. I gather she's straight?

by Anonymousreply 19105/05/2019

R191, I think her whole family is fucked up to some degree. They all are a bit out there. Her younger sister committed suicide a few years ago.

David Sedaris's books portray the mother as an alcoholic and the father as emotionally distant.

by Anonymousreply 19205/05/2019

I don’t know about Amy’s love life but David and his husband have been together for twenty years almost. I know that the two siblings that still live around Raleigh are married with kids and live perfectly normal lives. One owns a flooring company and is basically a redneck, but he is the youngest child and was born here.

I was a huge fan Stranger With Candy, but can’t get into At Home with Amy Sedaris. There are some funny parts, but it’s way too uneven. Sedaris does carry off some good characters, but they writing let’s her down.
