David Sedaris

  • David Sedaris

“Sedaris ain’t the preeminent humorist of his generation by accident.”
- 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.”
- 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.”
- Chicago Tribune 
“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

KNIGHT CONCERT HALL
“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!” - Chicago Tribune

Join David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories and observations with several sneak previews into work that will be published in his newest collection of writing in 2017, as well as an audience Q&A. 

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and his most recent book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller.  His next book will be a collection of his diaries, entitled Theft By Finding to be released June 6, 2017.
