WBUR presents An Evening With David Sedaris

This show has passed


This performance includes live music on the Mighty Wurlitzer before the show!

Event Description

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. 

WBUR presents David Sedaris as he returns to the road following the release of his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious collection, Calypso.  Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality.  Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny- it’s a book that can make you laugh ‘til you snort, the way only family can.  Sedaris’s powers of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled.  But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up more past than future. 

If you love David Sedaris’s cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you’re getting into at his live readings.  You’d be wrong.  To see him read his own work on stage allows his autobiographical narrative to reveal a uniquely personal narrative that will keep you laughing throughout the evening.  Don’t miss this event!
