An Evening with David Sedaris
About the Show:
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. He is the master of satire and one of today’s most observant writers addressing the human condition. Calypso, his latest collection of essays, is a New York Times best-seller, and a Washington Post Best Book of the Year. The audiobook of Calypso has been nominated for a 2019 Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category.
Sedaris will speak for 60 minutes, followed by 20-30 minutes of audience Q&A and a post-show book signing in the lobby.
“Sedaris ain’t the preeminent humorist of his generation by accident”
—Whitney Pastorek, Entertainment Weekly
“Sedaris has hit upon the narrative equivalent of Pepsi, or the PlayStation, or oxygen, or the haircut: something that others in the world might actually want and find useful. . . He’s smart, he’s caustic, he’s mordant, and, somehow, he’s . . . well, nice.”
—Bill Richardson, Toronto Globe and Mail
“Sedaris’s droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world’s crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today.”
“Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
