While on the promotional trails for their latest projects, Jon Stewart (‘Rosewater’) and Amy Sedaris (‘BoJack Horseman’) discuss their good friend Stephen Colbert’s move to hosting the ‘Late Show’ in 2015, his and his character’s fear of bears, and how Amy found out about his three-legged pet rabbit.
In this month’s catch up we have interviews with J.R. Havlan, Lewis Black, Michael Che and Amy Sedaris, casting news for David Pasquesi, Amy Sedaris and Rory Albanese, new written pieces by Frank Lesser, J.J. Sedelmaier and Jordan Klepper, new music from Erik Frandsen, and David Sedaris is rewarded for his services to the environment of West Sussex.
Sedaris, who is, for the record, not a lesbian, has been a bunny person since the nineties. She’s had two of the little critters over the years. The first, Tattletale, was an impulse buy after gazing into a pet shop window. She adopted the second, a black-and-white Mini Rex named Dusty, who passed away recently at the age of 12. “I’m still in mourning,” said Sedaris while sitting on the floor of her Greenwich Village apartment, the walls of which boast bunny paintings. Toy rabbits that resemble her own can be found on a shelf, and in the bedroom she keeps two urns with her little angels’ remains. Sometimes, she writes them letters, telling them she misses them or how her day was. She’s waiting a year until she gets another. “This time,” she said, “I think I’ll get two.”
In this month’s catch up we have a family recipe from Meredith Scardino, a new comedy album benefiting a children’s charity from Rob Kutner, a new film collaboration between David Javerbaum and Steve Carell, a profile of Michael Che’s comedy career, a new humour piece from David Sedaris, and interviews with Rob Dubbin, Conan O’Brien, David Sedaris and John Oliver.
