What’s not to love about Jerri Blank from Strangers With Candy. She’s aÂ paroled 46 year old and former “junkie whore and run away drop out”.
She thinks big after getting out of the big house and goes back to Flat Point High and starts her freshman year (for like the third time). But don’t call her a quitter as Jerri is determined to tackle high school. This is proof that your never to old and that regardless to where she’s been or who she has done (and she has fucked about everyone she can—Oh and did we mention she’s bisexual).
This dark,Â hilarious comedy truly put a new spin on the old “after school TV special”. Starring Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert before his big break-this show was raw, fun and down rite gritty. Jerri Blank was a boozer, a user and a loser and liked “The Pole and the Hole”.
Here’s to Amy Sedaris and Jerri Blank and “Good Times” as she always said.
