Early Life

Sedaris was born in Endicott, New York, to Sharon Elizabeth (née Leonard) and Louis Harry "Lou" Sedaris, and grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her five siblings. Her father is of Greek descent and her mother was an Anglo-American. Her family was Greek Orthodox. Her older brother is author David Sedaris.As a teenager, Sedaris worked at her local Winn-Dixie supermarket. She would make fake announcements over the loudspeaker, and the head cashier would threaten to fire her. After work, she egged the cashier's car in protest. Later, as a cocktail waitress at Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago, Illinois, she was fired for being five minutes late. In retaliation, "I took [the manager's] keys, and I threw them in the snow. I heard he found them in the spring." Sedaris graduated from Jesse O. Sanderson High School in 1980. In David Sedaris' book Me Talk Pretty One Day, he noted that Amy would often assume characters to play pranks on her family.
