David Sedaris

Ingrid Christie

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David 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.

You may have heard him on the hugely popular BBC Radio 4 series ‘Meet David Sedaris’ or you might be one of the millions worldwide who have read one of his many books.His next book will be a collection of his diaries, entitled Theft By Finding (summer 2017).  Now, after three sell-out runs in London, two sell-out Edinburgh Fringe Festival stints and a sell-out UK 2014 tour; David Sedaris will once again set out across the UK.

Reviews

‘David Sedaris isn’t a stand-up, or even much of a showman. But in his own dry and unassuming way, he’s one of the finest comic talents currently living on this planet.’ THE GUARDIAN

‘He has a Bennett-like way with a pause, and pitch perfect comedy timing…’ SCOTSMAN (****)

‘Profanity seldom sounds this refined, phrases so expertly massaged, or laughs so lovingly engineered.’ THE HERALD (****)

‘No, Sedaris isn’t a stand-up, but he’s certainly a masterful comic writer, whose modest delivery brings his words to hilarious life.’ CHORTLE (****)
