With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. He 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. His newest book, a collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer), was published in September 2010 and immediately hit the New York Times Bestseller Fiction List. His original radio pieces can often be heard on This American Life where his droll delivery and unique voice made him a media sensation. Sedaris has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album. His two previous appearances at the Silver Center still hold the record for fastest sold out events. You have been warned.
