It’s week 5 of my improv class and tonight’s comedic inspiration is AMY SEDARIS! For all you Strangers With Candy fans out there, this one is for you!
This show changed my life 10 years ago. I was first introduced to it on a hungover Sunday morning in the crack-den dorms at the University of Maine Farmington. After a night of binge-drinking
rubbing alcohol Orloff Vodka, popping stolen pharmaceuticals from my friend’s grandmother’s medicine cabinet, and dancing around a dorm room with a pink vinyl purse and pleather black boots (photos still exist), 3 of my besties popped in season 1 of this cult classic as our stomach’s loudly digested the laxative-filled dining hall brunch. My life changed forever. The ridiculousness of Amy’s every move, every thought, every word embodies the style of comedic genius that I strive for each day. For those of you that are unfamiliar with this show, google it now.
In the meantime, however, watch some of Amy’s trademark style (as she teaches vaginal hygiene) on Chelsea Lately.
