An Evening with David Sedaris Auckland 2012 Tickets

NPR Humorist and Best-selling Author of Me Talk Pretty One Day and When You Are Engulfed in Flames announces An Evening with David Sedaris 2012 Australia/NZ theatre tour. 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 David Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris has just enjoyed his first sold out run at Edinburgh's International Fringe Festival and will on this, his third visit to Australia and for the first time in New Zealand, perform his own style of spoken word at theatres in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland in January 2012.

Each performance will be followed by a question and answer time with the audience and a book signing opportunity after the show. David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and When You Are Engulfed in Flames, each of which became a bestseller.

There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. He was the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” His latest book, a collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Wicked Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer), was published in September 2010 and immediately hit the NYT Bestseller Fiction List.

David Sedaris has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album. His latest audio recording of new stories (recorded live) is “David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure” (November 2009).
