The Weirdo, Welcome 'At Home With Amy Sedaris'

"As a host, she's equal parts earnest and off-kilter, introducing one demented craft project after another."
Publish date:

"Amy Sedaris welcomes viewers to her new TV show—a satire that plays out like a bizarro-world cooking series, except the recipes are for terrible crafts—with a grin stretched so wide it's practically falling off her tiny face," writes Caroline Framke. "She delivers so many left-field punchlines that it's hard to catch them all before she moves on to the next instructional segment or throws to a separate sketch.

"As a host, she's equal parts earnest and off-kilter, introducing one demented craft project after another—from necklaces adorned with decaying raisins to popsicle sticks dipped in glue and stray hair—all while keeping an eye out for pesky snakes that might be lurking behind yarn balls."

"At Home With Amy Sedaris is modeled after an antiquated genre of television: the hospitality shows of the '60s that taught women how to cook and create and become a perfect domestic partner," Kaitlyn Tiffany explains.

"To Sedaris, the most satisfying part of embracing black humor is being able to 'laugh at stuff that really isn't funny,'" explains Joel Keller. "You just have to make fun of it, but you just have to think about what's funny about every bad situation in a lot of ways. I do, anyway. That's why I like to watch dramas. Even then I can be like, 'What's funny about that? How could I make this funny in my head?' Doesn't mean I go out there and do it, but I just like to look at the funny side of things, as well as the serious side of things. I can be pretty serious." To read the full interview, click here.
