Amy Sedaris Has A Theory About Where Jerri Blank Is Today
by Christopher Rudolph 8h ago Last night the inaugural Tribeca TV Festival hosted the world premiere of the new lifestyle series At Home With Amy Sedaris, starring the quirky comedian.
After a screening of an episode from the first season, Sedaris, and the show’s co-creator Paul Dinello, sat down for a conversation with Andy Cohen where they talked about the genesis of the show. Their cult series, Strangers With Candy, was also brought up when Cohen asked if Sedaris thought Jerri Blank could make a cameo on her homemaking series. “I thought about bringing Jerri into this,” Sedaris told the audience. “But, we didn’t do it.” Even though the lovable loser might not make an appearance herself, that doesn’t mean Jerri is far away. “We always felt like the worlds [of At Home With Amy Sedaris and Strangers With Candy] are all connected somehow. That they live in the same town,” Dinello told Cohen. “She would live a half mile away.” Speaking of Jerri, Sedaris has a theory of where she is today: “She’s alive,” Sedaris revealed during the interview. “I think she’s in Fort Lauderdale, running a day care center… near a pit.” Sounds right.
