Paul dinello and amy sedaris dating
SEDARIS: You see people out there dressed like Jerri Blank. When I'm shopping I'm like, "Oh my God, that would be so perfect for Jerri Blank." SEDARIS: High-waisted pants and the ankle boots, the snakeskin boots, the turtlenecks. And then the fatty suit I had made for this joke I played on my dad, which my brother wrote about, but I just wanted a different body. DINELLO: Like any con man, she knows who to sidle up to. I think those people are always around and she could just sniff them out. " she would say, like, "I like that Buffy Sainte-Marie." I don't think she's that aware of pop-culture. It made me think of when I had the hot dog episode and the weather that day.
Here, Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello, part of the impressive braintrust responsible for the 1999-2000 Comedy Central series alter ego to a rash that keeps popping up.
Vicki Farrell did the wardrobe for her, and the only thing I can think of that I told Vicki was, "I want to look like I own a snake." And she just nailed it. I like it when unattractive people try to be attractive. For me personally it was fun to have a fatty suit 'cause I would do things I wouldn't be able to do without it.
I wore turtlenecks because Comedy Central didn't want to show track marks or tattoos. I wanted the kind of body where, you know, you could stand behind a bar and pick up a guy 'cause he can see you from the waist up and you look like, "Oh my God, she's pretty hot." And then you walk from around the bar and now he's like, "Oh my God! And also it was just fun to play sexy when you felt like you weren't.
This isn't how it works on TV." But we didn't know the rules, so we made them up and we made it work. SEDARIS: Trust me, I'm a lot like Jerri Blank, aren't I, Paul?
I like to be like, "Okay, I'm going to make X amount of money," and just take—I live my life.
