An Evening with David Sedaris at the Michigan Theater

. October 13, 2015.

It’s hard to imagine a comedian and author more prolific than David Sedaris, the best-selling author of multiple titles including Me Talk Pretty One Day and When You are Engulfed by Flames. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.With politically incorrect and sardonic wit, no topic is safe– from family secrets to Santa to illness.

On October 26th, Ann Arborites will have the opportunity to experience Sedaris’ rip roaring and irreverent style live at the Michigan Theater for his one-night show, An Evening with David Sedaris. He will share personal recollections and read from his essays and books.

Sedaris was nominated for a 56th Annual Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for his best-seller, Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls (one of 3 such nominations). He is the author of the New York Times best-selling collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer). He was also the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. Sedaris’ pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.
