Like Gerri, Mary Hartman was another child-woman, that's thoroughly bewildered by the world around her. I can see a lot of david sedaris' humor in his sister amy's writing- maybe all those stories were a little more real than I had imagined- This show was amazing! The writing is totally free and making fun of all we cannot mention, without using forbidden words. Strangers with candy is best explained as a parody within a parody. The one thing that I found to be somewhat entertaining was the relationship between the two male teachers. But I gave it a chance, and loved it.
Jeri is a character that is trying to get her life back ontrack, and at her age, she went right back to the beginning, the high school she dropped out of. Daily, Gerri struggles to win approval, while those around her consider her to be a pathetic specimen of humanity. Maria Thayer plays Jerri's red-headed friend and is totally beautiful in every episode shes featured in. What makes it even funnier than seeing Geri go through the motions in high school as an old woman is the parody of the cheesy afterschool specials that each episode takes the form of. No laugh track is necessary, as you'll surely know where the giggles come in. Amy Sedaris is Jerri Blank.

I realize that perhaps the director is a suppressed Batman fan or that the cast just got away with it, but it struck me as hilarious to have strict nerds hiding their Batman fetishes. The only original student to return was Thayer as redhead Tammi Littlenut.

Instead of treacly lessons about how one wine cooler will lead you into a life of alcoholism, or about how peer pressure to smoke pot is something you should say no to, etc. It is hard to understand why Comedy Central canceled Strangers With Candy. I'm a Batman T shirt maven - have over 25 different designs, and constantly visit this website that carries a huge number of , so perhaps I am exactly the type of person this stunt is aimed at. The other characters in this show are a menagerie of off-beat, bizarre, people. It was hard not to pay attention to every minute of this show. Forty-seven-year-old Jerri Blank is a socially unaware ex-con junkie alcoholic prostitute. Dissecting morality is always great.
I find that the 1st Season is probably the best of the 3, so pick up a copy. The show has huge laughs. Both where very essential characters to the original series and it was nice to see they brought them back for the film along with some of the other characters including Jerri's Mother Deborah Rush , her mother's boyfriend Stew David Pasquesi and a few others.

It is politically incorrect, vulgar, and rude. Desperately in need of — at the very least — a pedicure and a few Pilates sessions, she presents an unnerving combination of prison-yard street smarts and profound dumbness. I was completely drawn in. I watched a few episodes of this show when it originally aired and now Comedy Central has it in reruns. By turns needy and belligerent, repulsive and almost sweet, Jerri is one of those sketch-comedy creations, like Martin Short's Ed Grimley or Gilda Radner's Lisa Loopner, that somehow transcends caricature to become — well, human might be overstating it, but you know what I mean. Also I would have to say they should have stuck with the original dad. She arrives home to find that her mother has died, and her father has remarried a much younger woman and has fallen into a stress-induced coma in part because she disappeared.

The premise is that of a sick and twisted after school special from hell where all of the wrong lessons are learned. What more could one ask for, except maybe a fantasy sequence where Jeri turns into the incredibly cute Amy Sedaris while she's making love to a classmate, male or female or both at once. After being released from her latest stint behind bars, Jerri wants to clean up her life and decides the best way to do so is to go home, where she left thirty-two years earlier when she began her depraved life. That is the beauty, they dance around, and make that a skit on its own. The one-liners fly so fast that you barely have time to laugh before the next joke.
