Amy Sedaris talks about the new film “The Best and the Brightest,” which she and John Hodgman star in, along with Neil Patrick Harris and Bonnie Somerville. It’s a modern-day comedy about a couple’s struggle to get their daughter into a private kindergarten.

Amy will also discuss “Great Speeches & Other Outbursts,” a benefit for 826NYC hosted by Sarah Vowell at Symphony Space June 20. Hodgman and Sedaris will be performing along with Ira Glass, John Oliver, Eric Bogosian, and others.
