Strangers With Candy stars Amy Sedaris as Jerri Blank, a 47-year-old loser junky whore high school freshman with lesbian tendencies. Got that? As one might guess, the movie plays off the temptation, as well as the prohibition, implied in its name. It is a brand of comedy that invites one's sense of humor to venture where it has not dared go before.

Strangers with Candy shows the onscreen relationship between co-screenwriters/co-stars Paul Dinello (The Colbert Report, and the SWC TV series) and Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report, The Daily Show). The two play schoolteachers Geoff and Chuck, who are also squabbling gay lovers who offer a cynically comic spoof of gay relationships. [Read More...]

I've followed SWC since Comedy Central days and look forward to the movie. It was extremely raw for television and the writing is the best I've seen.

Thank you for posting this. I completely missed Strangers with Candy when it was on Comedy Central. On the advice of a friend, I bought the DVD of the complete series and found it hysterically funny. I can't wait to see the movie.

Also, Screwy Hoolie has asked us to pick a BlogAsheville linked blog and invite the blogger to attend our 1st anniversary party on June 17th. Of all of the talented folks on the blogroll, your site makes me laugh more than any other and I read it daily. So Susan, I would like to invite you attend our gathering as it would be so cool to meet you in person. Forgive me for posting this, I couldn't find your e-mail address on EBC.

SWC is getting good buzz ( I can't believe I just wrote that! Ha!) It was playing at the Seattle Film Festival. I want to see it too. :)

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
