An Evening With David Sedaris

THU 23 JANUARY, 2014

Presented by Token Events and Show and Tell

David Sedaris returns to Australia for an evening of reading and conversation.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David has become one of the world’s pre-eminent humour 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.

Don’t miss your chance to see the author of Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day and his latest book, Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls live on stage.

Known for
Described as 'the rock star of writers', by 2008 Sedaris' books had sold over seven million copies.


David Sedaris isn't a stand-up, or even much of a showman. But in his own dry and unassuming way, he's one of the finest comic talents currently living on this planet.


A man who could capture your heart and lift your spirits while reading out the ingredients of a rice cake
