An Evening With David Sedaris

Despite the fact that David Sedaris made a mockery of me, I would still encourage all and sundry to get to the Auckland Town Hall this week to see one of his rare live shows. Basically, if you haven’t already realised, David Sedaris is very funny. His books are hilarious, but when you hear him tell his stories live he takes his hilarity to a whole other level. His is not PG humour – family, love, politics, sex, drugs, rock n’ roll – and every little and big thing in-between. All topics are approached with his particular brand of brazen comedy, but it is fantastic - he actually says what we all think.

David Sedaris, you made a fool out of me! Three years ago I was reading your book ‘When You Are Engulfed in Flames’ on a bus and I snorted, hooted and cried with laughter, like a creature for whom ‘being human’ was a new concept.

It was so bad that I had to put your book away, but this did nothing as the memories of your words, your perfect New York accent ringing in my ears, and an unhinged snort escaping persistently from my nose and mouth.
