    Amy Sedaris

    The perky, fast-
witted, and 
multitalented Amy Sedaris is known for her standout performances in Strangers With Candy, Elf, and The Good Wife. She also knows how to throw a mean dinner party and wrote the how-to book I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence. And with a title like that, we’re hoping to score an invite to her next shindig.
