Biography's Source:

Amy Sedaris was born to Lou and Sharon Sedaris on March 29, 1961 in upstate New York. The new baby girl was the fourth child born to the Sedarises, after daughters Lisa and Gretchen, and son David. Her early childhood years were spent in the town of Endicott, New York. Sharon's family was from nearby Binghamton and Lou's Greek mother, known to the family as "YaYa", lived a little further away in Cortland. Most of Amy's formative years, however, were spent in Raleigh, North Carolina, after her father had been transferred there by his employer, IBM. Amy's younger sister Tiffany had been born shortly before the big move, so the youngest Sedaris sibling, Paul, is the only member of the family who is a native southerner. Many amusing anecdotes about life in the Sedaris household can be found at any bookstore within brother David Sedaris's hilarious collections of short stories and essays, "Barrel Fever", "Naked", "Holidays on Ice", and "Me Talk Pretty One Day".
