An Evening With David Sedaris

National Public Radio Humorist and multi-time bestselling author David Sedaris returns to the Alys Stephens Center with his sardonic wit and incisive social critiques. 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. See the return of Sedaris, whom The Chicago Tribune calls, “one of the greatest humorists writing today.”

“Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.” — San Francisco Chronicle
