Evenings with David Sedaris

Thursday January 12, 2012 Written by luke

Everyone's favourite humorist/memoirist/affably neurotic homosexual has landed in Australia for a rapid-fire national tour.

A publisher of many successful books and The New Yorker's go-to guy for comic anecdote, David Sedaris's readings are strange intersections between a literary evening and a stand-up comedy routine; the incisive cracks that render his prose so recognisable and warm come to life with a positively un-literary sense of comic timing.

With five shows left, there's still time to catch him.
