Even at his most incisive and sardonic, there’s a gentleness about David Sedaris’s wit: he’s laughing with us, not at us (or at least he’s laughing at himself as he laughs at us). The skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness is breathtaking, revealed in innocent-seeming stories about his childhood or a recent outing. More than seven million copies of his books, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and When You Are Engulfed in Flames, have been sold; and as much fun as it is to read them, hearing David Sedaris weave his meandering tales live surely doubles the pleasure. “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).

This concert will run approximately 90 minutes.
