The very funny actress, comedian and author is known for her role in the creation of the bizarre TV comedy Strangers with Candy and its main character, Jerri Blank. She's also written a bestselling book on entertaining, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, which she discussed on The Sound of Young America several years ago.

Amy talks with us about where to get the best decorative preserved chipmunk, the power of transformation through costume, and crafting out of necessity. Her new book, which captures her can-do spirit and love of all of the aforementioned, is Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People, is out now.
