Another comedy powerhouse has signed with UTA, as The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned that Amy Sedaris has joined the agency from Paradigm.

Best known for her inimitable Jerri Blank on Comedy Central's Strangers With Candy, the actress is a fixture in the comedy world, voicing Princess Carolyn in Netflix's animated BoJack Horseman and making appearances on Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Louis C.K.'s Horace and Pete, Comedy Central's Broad City, Amazon's Alpha House and Adult Swim's The Heart, She Holler. Sedaris also does drama, including CBS' The Good Wife as one of the recently concluded show's most memorable recurring players.

She next will be seen opposite Jon Heder and Justin Long in Tandem Pictures' feature comedy Ghost Team, which The Orchard will release in August. Sedaris started her career alongside Stephen Colbert as one of the originators of HBO and Comedy Central's 1995 sketch series Exit 57.

As an author, Sedaris dispensed lifestyle and entertaining advice in I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People, the latter of which she adapted into her YouTube series Amy Sedaris Makes.

She continues to be repped by attorney James Adams at Schreck Rose.
