David Sedaris

One of the ASC's favorite artists of all time is back! Join Grammy-nominated humorist, playwright, and author David Sedaris for a most entertaining and intellectually provocative evening as he celebrates the release of his ninth book, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. This new collection of essays from the No. 1 New York Times bestselling author takes readers on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop,Sedaris takes us on sidesplitting adventures that are not to be forgotten. Sedaris, who has been called the "rock star of writers," came to prominence on December 23, 1992, when he read on National Public Radio his essay titled SantaLand Diaries, about being an elf at Macy's department store during Christmas in New York. A huge hit with listeners, he began recording a monthly segment for NPR based on entries in his personal diary. He soon signed a book deal with Little, Brown and Company. After the publication of his first collection of essays and short stories in 1994, his next five books became New York Times Best Sellers. Whether you're a longtime Sedaris fan or a newcomer testing the waters, you're guaranteed to have a fun evening!
