Amy Sedaris is my favorite. I’ve said before—and this bears repeating—that she combines everything I love about crafting, cupcakes, and Quaalude abuse. (I assume we all have pin-up posters in our kitchens of Amy wearing frosting and sprinkles and nothing else? No? Well, I do, and my boyfriend’s roommate does, which means my boyfriend has to look at Amy Sedaris wherever he goes, poor guy.)
Now, Miss Sedaris has given better performances on other late-night talk shows, maybe, but this is the first time I’ve seen her wearing a breakaway skirt. And she’s right! She really can do anything in those Maidenform® Flexees® pants! She’s also channeling a little Mary Katherine Gallagher in this performance (am I old?). Watch closely for Jimmy Fallon’s aneurysm.

Amy Sedaris is absolutely hilarious and too cute for words, so she’s basically the best talkshow guest on the planet. She’s killed it on Martha, she’s killed it on Chelsea, but she has a very special relationship with David Letterman.
Last night she sat down with the legendary late night host to discuss her new book, Simple Times: Crafting for Poor People, and it really was just about the most delightful eight minutes of television that I’ve watched in some time.
What killed me? When Dave asked Amy why she hadn’t been on the show in so long, the single and child-free Sedaris replied, “Well, I’ve been busy. You know, when you’ve got family… Oh, wait. That’s right.”
