Amy Sedaris, Ernie Kovacs Award and the Dallas VideoFest December 8 1
Dallas VideoFest honors actress and writer Amy Sedaris, a Second City alumna and known for her role as Jerri Blank in the Comedy Central favorite Strangers withCandy, with the coveted Ernie Kovacs Award at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Alamo Drafthouse (100 S. Central Expressway at Beltline – Richardson).
Bart Weiss of Dallas VideoFest
“Amy Sedaris has brought a unique vision to television and cinema, developing strong and funny characters in a Kovacsian way,” said Bart Weiss, founder and artistic director of Dallas VideoFest. “What a wonderful addition to the great artists who have taken home The Ernie Kovacs Award.
“I am sure Ernie Kovacs and Edie Adams would be thrilled to be here, but their spirits will infuse the night.”
Joshua Mills of the Estate of Ernie Kovacs
“Amy Sedaris so firmly embodies Ernie Kovacs’ cockeyed aesthetic that she is a natural to win The Ernie Kovacs Award,” said Joshua Mills of Ediad Productions and the Estate of Ernie Kovacs. “Not only are Amy’s outrageous characters such as the Wine Lady and the Hobo very Kovacsian, but she excels in front of the camera, on radio and as a writer too just like Ernie.”
