David Sedaris on Tour

David Sedaris at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts

David Sedaris, author of bestsellers Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denimand regular National Public Radio contributor, will be appearing for one night only in San Jose, following the release of his newest book & New York Times #1 Best Seller, Calypso.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr. 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.

David Sedaris returns to the road following the release of his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious collection, Calypso. Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality.

Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny — it’s a book that can make you laugh ’til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris’s powers of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future.

Advisory: Due to some mature material, parental guidance is suggested.
