Amy Sedaris: A Demented Martha Stewart

In our Trumpian age, what the world needs is to watch Amy Sedaris cook a fish. “Fish: a strange, cold-blooded and limbless creature that thrives in the stuff we drown in,” Sedaris, addressing the camera from behind the kitchen counter of her homemaking-meets-sketch-comedy show At Home With Amy Sedaris. “A thing of nightmares,” she continues. “But when battered and pan-fried, scrumptious!” She takes us through the buffet of fish before her. There’s the red snapper, with its high mercury content: “Perfect if slowly poisoning a loved one is on the menu.” Today’s catch of choice, though, is the river fish: “Always a crowd pleaser, assuming the crowd loves river fish.” The show premieres on October 24th.
