I can't say that we're accomplishing anything. Yeah you know you're right but we're laughing and we're making other people laugh. You can't beat. That is clear as that sounds no. It's it's something no it's good and we're in the moment because we're playing and i love. It's always fun to be in the moment. Always when you're right there. It's like you feel so alive. And i i'd i'd prefer that your show at home with. Amy sedaris is hilarious. It's three seasons. Nanny seasons one of the things that makes this show really come and really work is that you're obviously very funny but you aren't condescending about homemaking or or homemaking show. That's clearly something you're very passionate about and that comes out. I think that's that fuels and informs a lot of the comedy on the show. And and it's we're really makes you so good. Yeah i do care about that kind of stuff but then you also want to go for the laugh and then you're like oh forget about it. You know what i mean but visual is another good example.

If you're over at someone else's house and you can tell it's not tidy or that things are not as they. I don't get upset. I get a more obsessive like all of this whole. I can't believe that that you don't make your bed when you wake up. And the judgmental. Way i i really loved to go to other people's houses and see what they do and they don't to. I'm pretty says a lot about them. Do you go through their cabinets. Yes you go through their medicine cabinets. Your take things. You shouldn't take yes. I'll go home and i'll take a picture of say.

The makeup job that you did on yourself you just over jerry blank was so overly tanned and just oh that was me i tand law would lay out and stuff but the only thing she really did was eyelashes took like twenty minutes and i put nicotine stain on my teeth. But that's it maybe a little color underneath my eyes but that's it because it was not and then i didn't have tattoos or heroin marks. That's why a war on my character would have those things. But that's why. I wore a turtleneck with long sleeves. So we didn't have to deal with that in here. Make up good good. Who needs that. You don't want to look at that you know.

Who should replace Ellen?

"News is ongoing. Generous. Ongoing News that won't stop are one nemesis might be replaced by our other nemesis. On their talk show the Ellen show. Well, these are that this is them news, but I do feel like Ellen could be replaced with a WHO, if this all comes to fruition or like a WHO thinks so too person because I'm seeing a lot of people nominate various talk show e people although apparently the rumors are like James Corden is going to replace Ellen, but like he has a show so. That makes no sense to me on any. That's what blows my mind. Why he has eight hundred shows. He has just made another daily show like that doesn't make any sense to me at on. The also has carpool. Karaoke. And then he also has the cat sequel like he has plenty, oh. Yeah. Let's replace a supposedly nice person with another supposedly nice person like. Haven't. We learned anything from this thing. These people are Nice. They suck. I think always be wary of people who say their thing is being. I think the number, one person who should clearly replace Allen is Kiki Palmer. There's literally no. Better obvious. Getting a lot of a lot of traction and she showing up a lot of tweets because it's like she just had a talk show that got canceled for no reason on ABC. Well, it was like that one hour of Commerical Strahan. Michael? And Kiki Sarah? There was A. Third Sarah. Sarah. And Michael and Kiki It just give it to clean working it. Just everyone likes he. We Love Kiki. She's a great host. Who else do you think if if we're going if for skewing young? I think we to Kiki for skewing older, I think it should go to fucking the woman who should have gotten David Letterman, amy. Sedaris like give it to amy sedaris because people like her. She's silly. I don't know that, amy, the thing is I. Don't know that Amy Sarah's would want to do that I. Feel like. I don't need that. We're talking about this on the Patriot. If you WANNA. Go listen to that about how drew Barrymore also has daily, show a daytime show coming out, and I'm like who would want this job? Drew Barrymore wants this job since when like it's just to meal a a weird job that you wouldn't want that could turn you or probably. Turn you into a monster, right? Yes. but the to provide a context in case you've been under a rock people are like there. There have been the rumors for years and years and years, but specifically the past few months they've really you know the hit a critical mass and started being reported publicly like Ellen is an asshole to everyone. Ellen is an asshole. The people she works with Ellen makes people not talk to her ellen cruel. But now there are reports by like news and variety and insider that it wasn't just ellen being a to everyone and celebrities and not liking Ellen like being on Ellen show. It's that the executive producers were actually like being abusive like in sexually harassing the employees. So it's like a culture. Culture of toxicity. That is the sort of thing that I don't that Ellen is deciding up allegedly that she doesn't want to deal with anymore. So she's like this sucks like I just rather not do this anymore. Right. So but this rumor, this isn't this is in fact, this is rumor because people keep their keep going back and forth and saying some some sources say she's not leaving this show sums his sources as she's leaving the show. I. Can't imagine somebody as likely a annoyed with the whole situation who is known to be not a very nice person would want to continue to fake be nice and have to apologize and half to like kind of whatever because these rumors have been. Kind of like I for some reason I, keeping you Kevin Spacey Pre the abuse allegations like when everyone knew he was gay, but no one knew he was gay like it was weird thing where it was like if you knew, you knew if you didn't, you had no idea what be totally shocked it. Kind of feels like that type of Hollywood news where like everyone knew that Ellen was secretly mean except for Ellen fans who had no idea where living happily with ellen everyday of their life and like the show was wildly successful, right? very strange. A very strange thing. Do you think that this will happen because people are so bored in their craving, the Gospel, and then somebody just this is this is what I mean I, think it's I mean. It's a combination of a lot of things at one of is like the people finally speaking out about their employers. It's like finally like shutting down like the. The systemic issues and leg, not being corporate America and knowing that people will support them and believe them and believe them, and that like the media machine of Ellen isn't powerful enough to shut down. So many voices if enough come out and and we'll talk about it later in the episode, but it's like the it's similar to the. Vanessa. Morgan thing, it's it's shades of an ESA Morgan being like I'm going to speak up against the riverdale creators and the Riverdale producers because people are people are realizing that they can do that and they won't get like dumped on by the press or of their fans they will be seen as like heroes. But. It's also just like, I, Think Dakota Johnson had a tiny bit to do with it because Dakota Johnsons like Open crubaugh open open. Rudeness to Ellen SORTA. Gave People. I don't know permission to speak about rumors that she's an asshole more openly. They're like, it looks like that's what Dakota's referencing. So I didn't even know you liked me. Of course, I. Like you. You Knew I. Liked you. You've been on the show many times and don't I show like. But I did invite you and you didn't come. So this time you invited me, are you sure? How do you? I don't think. So ask everybody. Jonathan. Your producer. I was that, why didn't I go? I don't know that became a meme. You have people like Brad Garret and who else replied to him. Leah Tom's Tom's joins. She is mean she is. She. Yes. Now, I can't believe I just called the Thomson. So Deutsche US minor. That was obsessed the disease of this show right here. Yeah. Leah Thompson also respond to that and said Yep I mean, I just think that it's like no one was a true story note once you lose grip on the fear, you are the power you had over I mean, and it's funny because then you have scooter Braun coming out her being like Ellen is great. I. Love Allen is like so people still. Look at the people coming out and say L. Like scooters, hedging his bets at this, all go away and back to normal and Ellen will still be powerful and whatever, and then you have people speaking out i. just it's a fascinating reveal of a monolith almost kind of crumbling that you didn't think would ever. Be exposed like this. I didn't. It seems like Palmer is getting a lot of A lot of press over like a lot of tweets being could replace. Ellen is trending key Palmer got a lot. Tiffany haddish. Got A lot that woman who does the like trump impersonations? What's her name? Sarah? Cooper. She got a lot of people tweeting about her I mean, I think it's just bomber just someone who someone who actually. Got Some tweets booing reply Oh doodoo be from drag race also got A. Drag. Race. Got I. saw that. Yeah. But I think he palmer when you when you want someone who has like the resume as well like. You of don't WANNA, pick someone random like Sarah Cooper. As funny as she is on twitter, because like her her her skills as a as an interviewer, not proven whereas Kiki, Palmer is a link interviewer host. Yeah I mean I would say like the Ellen slots, big slot made we just move up the ladder. We get Kelly Clarkson in that slot. We get Drew Barrymore Kelly was and we get key. Palmer. Work. Curse, lot I know these are all people on different network. So it makes literally no sense but you. Better like we. We cannot confuse the audience. We must replace the Ellen show with someone named. Ellen. Ellen Ellen. Page's like don't look at me like another gay. Just like I will not I will. Zone POMPEO, she wouldn't do it. I. Don't I don't need Elon Pale. Ellen Page Ellen Popular, and Never Would Ellen Pompeo every interview Ellen Pao's ever done. It's been like I. Love Grey's Anatomy I. have nothing but free time like. She will never do that. You know who would do it. Who Ellen Barkin? Embark and all Ellen Barkin wants is a soapbox like did someone say soapbox?

It's really bad really extraordinarily bad for a lot of people because the I mean especially especially in America where I think there's a general sense of like that it'd be fined shit happens in other places but not America in literally overnight. Everyone's everyone's world changed and so I do hope that the people I dunno it and that kind of thing like how do you help those people? How can we help those people? What do we do what was sort of General Foundation? That just helps the most people you know and I know there are a lot of really great organizations that help feed people and help but but even like seeing restaurants around town that have shut down. It's like what's that staff going to do. How do we have indigo goes like do we? Just go around and and give money to those like. What's the best way that we can be helpful to those Brian? Yeah I don't know I really don't know I just. I think we all hope that it's I think there is still hope. You're like what what's the sort of seed of hope that kind of drives you every day. You just not think about it or do you have a thing that Kinda like fires you up and keeps you always helps when when it's sunny outside no kidding. I mean it gives me hope like a nice day really sets my mood. If it's it's it's you know cloudy. It just seems more It's a little something it helps. It's everything it's a sunny day. Yeah you're Nice Day outside it's just makes a big difference inside. The job is giving snowstorm. Was that in other parts of the snow but it didn't it just for a second but that was really nice and weather's been beautiful and just to get outside is nice. You know I see more birds and more squirrels more animals in nature. You notice more notice buildings more. It's really I mean when I walk I don't wear headphones and just walked walk but you know I noticed everything now even more than I did before and then that's been a good positive thing that's really nice I. It's sometimes it takes a tragedy to create awareness. You know because it's so easy to get caught up every day and you know just being distracted by a million things so that we feel like we're busy and then really being forced to to notice and be aware that that part I don't think is a terrible thing and I don't know I do hope that that sticks. I hope that.

How funny and lovely you were but then he said Sh and this this is letterman he goes? You know she's a bit off. Oh she's a bitch. She's a bit of an swire something something like that and then you came on in this crazy huge puffy like so funny but I thought to myself like what must be like to have the bar raised like that in order to have those expectations. You better mauled last minute because someone fell out so what I love last minute because it's like well. I couldn't prepare so much. I always had a letterman thing on my computer and a notebook things that I brought it down. Oh I gotta remember that it you know so.

I was kind of crushed by this because I love the idea of having a authority for I was I was a furry when I was in very friend of very Powell and so the next logical step was to get rabbits and I remember going to the pet store to get a rabbit rabbit. I brought it home but it was hopping oddly and I picked it up and looked underneath it and realized that it didn't have find feet it just had these two little nubs so I brought it back to the pet store owner and he said all right orange pick out another one and he took it kind of aggressively and tossed it into a separate bin and I said well what's going to happen to that one and he said Oh one of the snakes is GonNa get lucky and so I said well okay. I you know I can't have that happen so I can you at least give me a discount on it and he he's. I'll tell you what I'll knock off five bucks so he gave it to me for fifty dollars instead of twenty and then right when you left the store with nubs he went onto feed the snakes a bunch of able bodied rabbits snakes out there like this one doesn't have feet good.

She wouldn't move in a straight line so shoot run around in circles and make this buzzing annoying yes she does. I think a neurological problem album of because she would co her head was constantly cocked to one side and she would favor that side when she ran so which is why she ran in circles because she was constantly. I think she was trying to go straight but her head was but she would also remember the worst thing she did she would she would. They just shit everywhere. I mean there there was my poor mother was like beside herself. Oh speaking AH rabbits shit everywhere. Oh Yeah you remember yeah. I know what you're going to say what you do to me.

Do you remember that as a really funny the video okay so you prefer live audiences and do and I like the energy of a live audience and because you can't you have one day you have one chance. You're not gonNa you know stop. I mean now the Connecticut stuff but they're not gonna you. Just get away with more in a way you feel more like you. You can be yourself in the moment more and more media things. If something happens you your appearances on Letterman.

This is a boy ravin not a female. It's really hard to tell I know oh I thought you meant it was hard to talk about about living with the big raving queen.

"amy sedaris" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter

"Hey you know like moving the Hay bales which I think I only did once I was so allergic it was miserable and then they ever seen any snakes in those field or they not that remember yeah no not that I remember by that time. It's pretty cold Illinois. It's pretty cold and I don't so you know snakes and snakes aren't they. They're not that bigger problem but then the other one to that you'd have to do is <hes> castrating pigs to handle. Oh my God. I never did that but I had friends at did it and it's it's a it's it is quick and nasty. Why can't because I have a little hands? They just you know you gotta get because you just need like four kids to hold onto pigs and get rid of you just need and then you don't WanNa pay. They don't WanNa pay much just like you know if you don't have four kids of pig holding age. Wow Yeah yeah you gotta go get on that. You do have to go higher. Kids are old enough but you did you cheese balls. Oh you did she cupcakes and cheese balls. I always telling us that on my apartment when I lived on Christopher Street and then when I moved I stopped selling them but I'm going to get back into it might get back into but everyone started doing cupcakes yea problem and a cockroach problem in the old apartment. I wasn't worth about it a mouse in my house and they see cheese ball the size of the moon's your jokes on me. They were all in my apartment and they're one with walnuts to role than not now. Did you get did you find people. This is the thing is like are their fans just coming to you to buy cheese balls or are you getting like some dilettantish New Yorker people to be like I've had both had both charity and I'm like I'm always get one. No repeat business picking up on my doorman. I'm not now. It's all these rules. You like. I don't want fuck. I don't even Latin cheese cake. I make it so you connect cash only health like that but if I get a job yeah I'll go to production say one or two hundred and fifty cupcakes from me. I'll tell you what I'll give them to you for two dollars a piece and you know make the check more because I'd rather do it for cash but if you don't have petty cash you can write a check but it's gonNa cost you more go straight gay straight to him yeah but but not even like a profit margin. I'll make a profit yeah. They get my butter cheap. I go to Costco and get butter. All right for peanuts. Actual seems it's still just seems and I'm no businessman but if your time I now you know what I mean of the time that you could be spending. What else are you going to do with three symphony? That's what I do something with my hands always making much of this weed related how much of this is just back then a lot not so much like sitting in a room. We're GONNA throw it ideas like having something to do. Boy Relate it. That's funny well. I mean come on three A._M.. And you're you're ban now. I don't. I don't see up till three now who can now. I guess it's the what have you learned. I mean what do you do. You know what's what's Amy Sedaris this philosophy mccomb on let me let me ask because I interrupt you. I'm sorry have you ever been to therapy of any. I went to therapy after my sister tiffany died. I went for awhile and all this the show them working now I been I've been thinking about it for like twelve to fourteen years but I wasn't moving forward with it and so I did the cookbook this show the famous I had a hard time. It was almost like I just wanted to keep thinking about. It and I didn't really they try to really get it off. The ground met with a lot of people who try to make it happen and then I pull away so I went to a therapist for year to talk about tiffany and also why can't I move forward on this particular project. What is it so and it was really fun? I like talking to somebody and you know someone paint someone to listen to. You and I'd never been before you know so. I don't go right now but I would. I'd like to go back and see her at some point so that was kind of fun. What may ask what it was holding you back on the project? I think for me and I could think about something forever. You know what I mean. I WANNA think of every possibility and just obsess about it. It's harder notes. Show yeah crazy but it's harder than than you. It's but you just gotTa do people who can think there are people who are doers just that's I. I don't know what it was exactly but she motivated me to be like just we're going to do this Johnson. I had to do it but it's like a stew or this kind of show that I'm doing it needed to stew for fourteen years to be. I think something if it's going to be really good in needs to cook for why you can't make a two minute soup Andy I know people who do frozen French fries in it and I'm like no you can't make quick soups what does that mean and then and then into phrase disintegrate and it becomes Soghi and supposedly thickens awful awful but I just know a friend who made a soup and they put frozen French fries it. I thought maybe that was like some acceptable like Mark Apple Pie. I you know shortcut that people really yeah yeah but what I've learned is I. It's people that you work around. You know building relationships <hes>. That's what I've and I'm happy to have that with Pollen Stephen You know oh I think it's building teams and also knowing when someone's not party your team. You can still like them but you're like Oh. This isn't right good luck to you but you do you ever just do nothing. Do you ever leave. You have a stretch of time where you're not working. I'm always thinking of Ideas G. Go on occasion like I. I like work vacations but I'm going to Tokyo with David and and <hes> and you don't ever go sit on a beach somewhere. No really I really yeah I mean we go to the North Carolina Beach David Bodice Beach House and I'll go down there but we don't have tanning contest anymore so I don't really lay out as much as I used to and I missed that I love a love tanning Greek Greek. I can do that Eh vacation nonetheless. I know there's a job coming up or it's a work. You know no like to have something to think about. Is it just because the are you worried about money in that sense or just happy I just like do. I just happy when I'm working. Always happy working yeah yeah yeah. That's what makes me happy guts. It's it's it's good to know that and if it's making a lighters Vallarta job I gotta get one hundred lighters by Saturday. That's a job doesn't mean I have to be on stage and you know I just need. Someone needs to be calling me telling me we need this to me and I like hiring people and I like being boss. Well listen. Thank you so much for doing this so you could fit it from the past. Ask Yeah no kidding really yeah yeah. It's great to see on Senior Ages Milan time since you did your T._v.. Show which I can't even believe he didn't do more though effective sham a good idea. It was fun. Show Fun. Show was a fun show. That was a great cast that was squander while I was just squandered that you know that's kind of when you're talking earlier about people you know you you the different like your your projects have always kind of been generated by you or by David it or my the people with your partners and I think once you once you get out of that then you get into a world where Conan O'Brien has a great idea that he hands off to Jonathan Groff and then I get to be in it and then we cast asked all these fantastic people in it and then it gets made for T._V.. And the people who are in charge of it's destiny don't get it. Don't give a shit. Don't I mean don't you know the the quality of that. Show is irrelevant to the people that <hes> that put it on the air and it was on. I think I think when season right there were nine episodes and I think it was on it for different time slots sure they just you. I know they put it on like this week. It's on Thursday at eight right next week. It'll be Tuesday at ten Fridays view and yeah so it sucks. I mean you're you've you I. I know it wasn't like some grand calculation but you've done you. You've made a wonderful lie for yourself <hes> in career and and made a lot of people happy. That's Nice can't be bad oh you sure can't they can't that's the Nice thing about this. This work is you are literally making a phys- physical manifestation of happiness and that's that's pretty good stuff. That's all right well. That's as good a place to end his any <HES>. Thank you for listening to the three questions with Andy Victor and thank you amy Sedaris for spending some time low by the three questions with Andy Richter team cocoa and you'll production.

"Calm the mood that the move uh-huh nobody says hang hung off like that in a T._v.. Show when they're trying to your like you're not brought new calls her brother bro Bro that's his brother off and having having to say that line repeatedly was honestly I'd rather masturbate on camera than have to say that emotion like that kind of emotion that kind of like jive emotion of like if it's just playing like it's something it's just such an embodiment of something that's so gross like number one over caring about sports I ride number two having completely fucked up br parental priorities. Look I'll catch this ball aw to make my son loved me and that it's being put out there as like as the correct way to be. It's just it's GonNa fall to sit in the courtroom. That must have been brutal. I don't even remember the courtroom room. Pardon brutal. I do remember though because having worked on comedies for the people listening you you block seen you go in and you with the director first of all the actors and they have all their lines and you walk through the scene and you you block it and then they bring in the key people like the lighting people in the camera people so they can watch and see what they've done so you do these rehearsals you about eight nine times sometimes and by the third or fourth one. It's time to fuck around as far as I'm concerned like why can't I do it like yeah you know in an accent rhianna I do it like I'm being very and and it was I could tell that to the people in charge. We're like annoyed that I was having fun and I tell that the other actors like aw terrified for the gut the it doesn't change the camera Mu. If I talk with a Lisp you WanNa play play the applied honesty and anybody that gets an show business and doesn't want to have fun right. I mean all the fucking yeah I mean even the best the best people I've ever worked with the ones who are like that like Jonathan Groff when he used to run the CONAN room he he would be like guys. We gotta be late and be like we have to think of something for tomorrow and then somebody would like throw a trash can down the hall just to hear it sound he'd be like let me try that all day for fun. The shopping would yeah shopping wouldn't have fun so after exit fifty seven. which was you know? Relatively short-lived was one season or two seasons. I think it was too. It was a sketch comedy. Show endless sketches <music> sketches yeah yeah when the one I always remember it was a blackout and it was you're pregnant. WanNa feel my baby through the vaginal wall scour that was good good. WanNa feel the baby three three Regina from the inside through the vagina through the member but boy that was funny strangers strangers now how did that. How did it go from Exit fifty-seven destroyed student stuff? I think it was still doing plays it was waitressing and and then I wanted to do something in after school specials and then I went to Paul and he had the idea of making an older woman and then went to Colbert and he said how about you learn the wrong lesson so we each brought something to it pitched it and Ken alternate comedy central picked it up and we just did eh three seasons and when he got cancelled which they still haven't officially cancelled it now we were fine with it. We were like we could do ten more and we could not do ten more we kind of had that attitude about it and from there to Colbert do the daily show is that when he went to the out any yeah yeah yeah and then call in now were created at home with Amy Sedaris show which is gone and we have a lot of people on that like real actors who WanNa come on and have fun and Dowd and just people that are malloy. It's great and Michael Shannon. Dodgy Gola role on the show is so funny yeah. It's really become what I love about. The show and I was talking to Jodi Lennon who's a mutual friend of ours was in exit zip fifty-seven with and who's now producing and writing the first season it really did seem like not only what you guys. Were doing figuring it out yourself but you're also letting everyone else figure out kind of the show and now it's pee. Wee's playhouse. It's like if Julia Child Bush Together Julia Child And pee wee's playhouse. I it's it's now anything can happen. Oh it's so fantastic so funny whole is really fun and I saw him to a fake orange juice commercial on Youtube. That's where I was like. Oh that's my neighbor I worked with them on difficult people and he's he's a writer this season and he's really can do anything he just. He just excites me so much and just from that Youtube video. Oh that's what we're doing difficult people. He was improvising improvising a lot about everything he said was good. You know what I mean. I was like who's that like. He hasn't said one faults thing yet. Only just clicked gives you funny Boehner Yeah. He really oh boy. What about that yeah yeah? There is a good energy just good S. position does he does. He's a he's is attractive person in the sense that you just like a magnet you just WanNa look at him and you WanNa hear what he has to say. Well I mean we kind of talk now or you know about where where you've come from where do you. Think you're going now. Where do you have no idea the dentist? I gotta get a tooth poll but I really I know we're I'm going. Did you really have to get a tooth bolt because I was supposed to get polled a two days ago. I just have one pulled a year ago and you take a process process and this Miami Wine House to this right here so you'll see it so we're going to pull it. The other day and I kinda talked him out of it. I don't go by what I say. It's not showing the x Ray they think just cracked it because a grinding my teeth so I'm just I just put it off. I'll have to get it pulled. Eventually in Chile. Do wear a night guard. I do now but grinding your teeth. No worries seems like something longer on that side yeah anyway. What a drag? I know the process I hate it such. That's a good sport and the dentist chair pride myself on. What are you going to do people complain about? It's split it. That's also too. That's like actors that complain about having to wait. I'm always like what did you think this was. I know I just don't like feeling the stitches which is on my face you know when they're stitching it and you feel it and I have all those those dental books where I made fun of people with stitches in their mouth. I cut out the images. Send your card. Say you know smile. It's showtime I mean there was my Go-to like Oh my God and here I am third a tooth well. The show is going at home with Amy Sedaris fees and three true. We just started writing season three so I guess I'll have that and then but I don't really know just GonNa figure it out yeah. I'm happy to do this but I don't know what will happen beyond that. I always say I'm trying to have a baby. Just to turn people can try to have a baby andy. WHO turns you turn on a new life? I'm involved well but I mean you are. You are motherly. You have a series of rabbits that you've lost my third rabbit. Tina four years found out that the Savoy after four years live with an aggressive animal why why rabbits I was with you up where we bought her but that that's just done a largely I saw a window I was with you. I bought it with us to Jack. You're jody your home and and I've been I just love them like having Apprai- animal in my house that can just kick back and relax and know that I'm not gonna eat it is fun. I'M GONNA look at that. You know that's ever growing up we had dogs and cats but the rabbit just seems is right to me and I still get fascinated by their floor routines. You know it's like aunt clairol when they jumped mop ensuring that rabbit just move and you know like Bush just moved three blocks down the street. I love that about what you all the sudden they'll pop-up spin around and land and you're like I see that or does it happen so fast and what is that a function of they're they're happy oh it's called banking they can happen twirl and skipping jumping. I'm still like blown away by their little floor routines yeah yeah that's not going to do that. litterbox full of hey wow yeah so you have turds over your nails and I have a badge and I can. I'm trained and I go to your house with edge. Have a badge rain people yes who who authorized uh-huh cy badge and I and I wear it are on my neck and I go into your house and I'll say you're doing everything wrong and educate you on. Hey and rabbits and all that stuff now the people know Oh this. You'RE GONNA have fans buying rabbits just to try and get you into their house. Yeah tell me a little bit about because I don't know if a lot of people know this about about you mentioned it shortly about your basically. You're you're. You're you're very low level entrepreneurial spirit. Yes what is that about some girl scouts junior achievement and I'd like to tell me some of the things that you've done because I mean I know but potholders I make a lot I'm right allow uncovering lighters as you know just bic lighter special covers and sell them for ten dollars but I just like that transaction of your customer and I'm telling you something and I want the cash back and it's just like you said it's an extravagant. You can tip people with it. It's allowance money. I think it's just an me to make allowance money. I always ask kids about how much you make it at home or you. Have kool-aid stands or what they don't even know anything about money. I'm like I had a bank account. When I was ten I had a job when I was fourteen? It's like are you kidding me. Don't you want to you yeah who would want a job at seven. You want a job at seven. I had I mean I I worked. I'd probably have worked since I was eleven or twelve paper routes but then I had paper routes and you know an occasional neighbor work and then you know they're also would be sort of there was seasonal farm labor that kids would do tobacco in the south for us. It was <hes> they called it walking beans which is that just they would tell the field and it would bring up rocks that would have to be gotten out of the field and it would be gotten down to the field by kids following behind picking up the rocks and throwing them onto a thing and then there was bailing. Hey you know like moving the Hay bales which I think I only did once I was so allergic it was miserable and then they ever seen any snakes in those field.

"I don't know. I was in girl scouts up to my senior year or high school. Maybe that makes me a geek. I don't know. Did you learn to do any a cool girl scout stuff? Like do they like teach you knots or anything? I don't remember not, but a lot of the crafts I do on the show I learned in girl scouts, you know, and we'd go camping, and you know, you had to earn a badge and I liked earning badges and I liked, I was always sold the most cookies always and I just, I don't know. I something I just liked about girl scouts know getting together with a bunch of girls and doing crafts, and you know, singing songs and I loved uniforms. I still love uniforms and I still have my sashes and everything. And when I moved to New York. I went to the girl scout council and twenty third and I introduced myself and I said, they're two batches I didn't get. And is it too late for me to earn them? And they said, no, and they meld them to me in in in the mail. What were the two that you hadn't gotten side of the star and sign an era? I think that's what it was. What were they for. Yeah, like I don't remember by heart, but one might say, you know, you have to get up in front of an audience and talk about something. You love a lot. You know what I mean? Like little things like easy stuff then. Like, look, it, I'm, I'm thirty five. I've done this. I've done that. I did that. You know what I mean? I was just like, maybe I didn't do it back in the seventies, but I did it. I mean, look, you know, so I proved it to them and I got the badges ABC's airs I'm here by issuing new, the bullseye badge, how in honor of in honor of being my favorite. So nice. I really enjoyed talking to you. And yeah, really enjoyed talking to you slice catching up after all these years. Amy sedaris folks from last year.

"What a remarkable, incredible achievement. And Amy, you're mostly like making potholders and enjoying it. Yeah. No. And they are nice pot holders. It's not that they're not perfectly lovely potholders. They're just something that I could imagine a normal human being doing, you know, right. You can achieve this right. But like you must really. I mean, I imagine that you really get that kind of satisfaction out of a project that you can just kind of do and it'll end it'll come out kind of fun, you know? Well, like going back to what you said earlier, like when I watched shows like barefoot Contessa were Martha. Usually they come up with some gadget or something appliance, and I'm looking at it like really where in my apartment can I put that lemon juice Irv like where? And you're plugging it in, it's taking up all your whole counter space. And I'm like, that makes me feel left out because I don't have any gadgets, either French bean French or that's my gadget, you know? And I just it. You do feel left out or you're like, oh, I can't do that. You know, wow, that's amazing. Or you have to go to these funky, you know, specialty shops to get something and I'm just like, no. I mean, I grew up in a household where you're like, okay, go cut off the vacuum hose and we can use that for something or go scrape the shavings off, dad's expensive speakers and we can use. That to make a beard for something. I mean, you're just in your house and you're finding appliance. And that's what I like, or I like I'm drawn to naive crafts or like folk art because it's, you know, it's necessity and it's practical and you're doing with what you have, you know you can make a braided rug using pantyhose or tights. I mean, that's the family I grew up in and it just makes it a lot more fun. And then you're like, wow, I never thought to use that pinecone for, you know, to put glitter on that. Pinecone whatever it is, you know, it's, it's just makes it more creative and you feel more like a mad scientist. I was I, I wouldn't say I was surprised because you know it is sort of part of the premise of the show, but. I was really surprised a little bit to see you looking so much like you on the show and you do characters. There are sort of there are sort of sketch segments where you are playing someone other than Amy sedaris. But in the bulk of the show you look like Amy sedaris and I realized how little comedy I had seen you do. Without at least one weird perspective. I know it was hard for me. I didn't even fake teeth made for myself. Will I worried about that? I was like, oh, gosh, I am. I gonna play myself. But then once I started playing other characters, I was like, oh, I get it. Now I'm going to be the boring one. I'm going to be the, you know, the one that all those characters would make fun of. So then it gave me that's the hook that I went with. But I, I did worry about that and it was a challenge for me to play myself and to look like myself. But I, you know, I, I was like, well, I also get to play other characters. So it was okay. You know, because I have more fun playing characters and I like playing ugly characters. My favorite episode, one of my favorite episodes is entertaining for peanuts where it's on a budget, and I say that I do my own hair and makeup, and I look really good, really scary, Alec whole horrible. And it opens up that way, and I could just look at myself for ever and then I get to play a Hobo in this southern woman Patty hog. And this other character I play with my nose taped up. So. I just like that episode because I, I look so different in every scene. And then I also liked the holiday episode because I lose a tooth and I get a lockout mouth. Do you prefer to look at yourself on camera? I mean, you know, when you're making your own show, you have to look at yourself on camera to some extent. Do you prefer to look at yourself with a blackout, a blackout tooth and an crazy wig than to look at yourself in a pretty dress. Nice. Absolutely. I can't..

"Every craft on the show I wanted to get on my favorite craft is the one and some marshmallows stars that I make where you roll toothpicks and glitter and you insert them into a marshmallow. Oh, and then you hang it on fishing wire and I just can stare at that forever. Like there isn't anything on the show. I just love everything on made on the show and I was passionate about it. The only thing I make on the show that I've never made before as pie, but then I didn't really make it. You know, the food stylists made it, but I, I didn't like the idea of make saying I made something that I never even tried before, but, but it looked really pretty. So I was okay with it. Tell me a little bit about what's your favorite thing that you make on the show took cook actually yourself at home. Well, I do make I make this birthday cake with Nick Kroll that I, I make, it's it's angel food cake, and you fill it with ice cream and you cover it with whipped cream. And that's a really good ice cream cake to make, especially for kids too because they can help make it. And then I also make up baked Alaska. That was my favorite cake growing up. It's another ice cream cake and spun a COPA. Now you mentioned Spanish, COPA. I feel expanded COPA as a true passion of yours? Yeah, I make that all the time. I really can't make it is closed. Probably I, we all everyone in my family make spun it it on. It's easy, and it's easy to impress people with fee low because they're so intimidated by it. They don't know what to do with it. It's flaky, but we all have down in my family. So it's easy and it's not, you know, it's just a good crowd pleaser, let's hear another clip from at home with Amy sedaris. My guest is Amy sedaris is she does all kinds of home activities on the show everything you might do in home at class. And in this scene, she's talking about seafood and fish, and there is just a dizzying and frankly, slightly grotesque array of raw fish before her on her kitchen counter. I up the Arctic char. Now, this is so much attracted cousin to the salmon. Most people prefer salmon but will settle for char, especially if it's the end of a night, a heavy drinking and all the salmon has been ordered by the investment bankers, the red snapper. Now, you know what's the red snapper because it's red. You can see here a workman like this known for its firm texture and abundance of mercury. Perfect. If slowly poisoning, a loved one is on the menu. Next step is the poor gate. Now, this is perhaps the dumbest fish in the sea easily fooled by the most simple of lawers, so simple to catch. You can practically pull up to the Pierre, an unmarked van slide, open the door, and it'll jump right in a real dumb dumb. Feel like the monk fish is a visual gag. That just depends on the fact that a a monk fish is just really creepy looking. I know it was gigantic, it was like, and they were sitting out there for a while the set to not smell pretty that day. One of the things that I admire about your commitment to crafting, frankly, is it I always felt like I'm not any good at that kind of stuff. I could never do it. And I could never get enjoyment out of it because I'm no good at it. And very few of your crafts are technically impressive. I know, but I'm doing the best job I can. Yeah, I'm not. I've, I really I. I wanted to be clear how sincere I am in your in my admiration for you doing this. It's like, but. But I think like the when you see somebody doing, you see Martha Stewart doing something, you know, part of what you're admiring is just like, oh my gosh, I could never do something like that..
