If you’re totally confused about the title of this post and don’t know who Amy Sedaris is, she’s a hilarious (and sometimes crass) comedian, actor, and bestselling author of two books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Crafts for Poor People. 

She’s an unconventional hostess who brings a witty, hysterical, and bizarre side to entertaining. One of my favorite ideas… when your guests arrive, have a table set up with the junk you’ve been wanting to get rid of and a for-sale sign!
