An Evening With David Sedaris

Brisbane City Hall

Renowned author and humourist, David Sedaris, is returning to Brisbane in his third Australian tour to once again treat audiences to his insights and wit in An Evening With David Sedaris.

He’ll appear at Brisbane City Hall on Wednesday, 20 January, 2016 and you’d better be quick to get your tickets as they always sell quickly.

Nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best comedy Album, Sedaris will be reading a selection from his new unpublished essays and diary entries. His essays, regularly published in The New Yorker, recount his life experiences amid social critiques in sometimes hilarious detail and in a way that definitely divides people.

But those who love his brand of observant satire can’t get enough, such as this review from The Chicago Tribune: “Sedaris’s droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world’s crevices make him one of the great humourists writing today.”

Sedaris has written best-selling books such as Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, Dress Your Family in Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Me Talk Pretty One Day, and is listened to by millions of Americans on NPR (National Public Radio) in his show, This American Life, which airs through ABC Ratio National podcasts.

As a taster, this is what Sedaris has to say about our airports: “I love the airports of Australia. Security wise, they’re like stepping into a time machine and coming out in 1975. No-one yells at you, you get to keep your shoes on, it’s heaven.” Not sure if our border force would appreciate the comments but that’s the sort of wry honesty you get!
