Amy Sedaris comes from a large Greek family (she has 2 brothers and 3 sisters). She grew up in North Carolina.
She started a baking business with her mother, and then without much thought packed up and moved to Chicago. While there she began taking improvisational classes, and joined the main stage at Second City in the early 90's. While there, she met Paul Dinello and Stephen Colbert. The three have collaborated on numerous projects since then. She has also collaborated with her brother David, a world-famous essayist and humor writer.
Amy is best known for her role as Jerri Blank on Strangers with Candy. She has also guest-starred on numerous television shows and appeared in several movies. In 2006, she wrote a hospitality/humor guide.
