Six Degrees: Amy Sedaris on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “Simple Times” Book Tour Schedule.

In case you missed it, Amy dropped by “The Late Show with David Letterman” last night to promote her new book “Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People”, out November 2nd. Amy marvells at how long Dave’s hair has grown since she was last on the show 1 year and 3 months, shows off her new “mobile” phone, gives us an update on her “marriage” to Glen and shows Dave some simple craft tips.

“Simple Times” Book Tour Schedule:

The tour kicks off on November 4 in New York at the Barnes & Noble, Union Square, at 7:00 pm.

The full list of tour dates can be found at

While your there, also check out the “Simple Times – Audiobook Preview” read by Amy and Paul Dinello.

    I was lucky enough to catch Amy’s interview last night, and I’m really glad I did. She’s always so funny and quirky on Letterman. Her “mobile phone” bit was hilarious!

  2. gotta love amy!

    I caught the interview as well…and then I started watching her with Martha Stewart on YouTube. It’s like watching David and Goliath! I love Amy. So quirky and lovable:)

    LOL, just so silly and love David’s laugh – actually more like a manly giggle.

    She said that she and Paul D. put the book together. You know that has got to be marvelously twisted! Wonder if she will get to pitch it on either the TCR or TDS.

      Amy Sedaris Medicine Cabinet (the people/person behind AmySedarisRocks) posted on Facebook that Amy will be crafting on the Report on dec 14th. They’re usually accurate so, yay!

        just wanted to add *fingers cross* since i’m not with AmySedarisRocks and can’t personally verify it. (That site seems like the NFZ of Amy-dom though so hopefully they’re right.)

  5. Thanks for posting both clips. I caught only the very end of the Letterman interview, and the tumbling routine is endlessly, amazingly entertaining.

    Amy’s going to be at the Free Library of Philadelphia – on a night I could go!

  6. IT’s funny, because when I was watching Stephen on the show last week, I was noticing that Dave’s hair actually looks like it did back in 1985. His hair was blonder then and longer.
    I actually think it looks better the way he has it now.
    Amy is so funny, I don’t understand how she doesn’t have more shows and fame, but she’s working and that’s what’s important.

  7. @magdalena – Yep, it’s true–Amy will be crafting with Stephen on TCR Dec. 14! I got that bit of info from her publisher (I’ve been working pretty closely with them lately), so it’s definitely legit. I hope Paul makes a surprise appearance, like when Amy was on TCR in 2006! Actually, on Facebook, it was a publicist from Grand Central (who I made an admin) who first posted that. :-D
