Wood Draws Fey/Sedaris Parallel
Now, to the story. More specifically, to a Heather Wood story at the Huffington Post in which she advises studio and network heads on preferred means of vaulting a few of her favorite women comedians/actresses to superstar status.
Among her favorites is Amy Sedaris (who I also think is a real talent). Anyway, Wood makes an interesting comparison between Amy and Tina Fey. Here's the remark:
"Amy Sedaris is Tina Fey... on crystal meth. She's got the same pleasant good-looks, same wicked sense of humor, same Second City credentials, but when it comes to performing, Sedaris prefers to go as far as taste and the FCC will allow."
I never really thought about comparing the two, but she makes a good point. The full post is an entertaining diversion. Check it out.
