NPR humorist, New York Times Bestselling Author and three-time Grammy Award® nominee, David Sedaris returns to Walton Arts Center on Tuesday, Oct. 24 to read selections from new and unpublished works with his signature playful, deadpan prose.
Fans of Sedaris praise him as a master of satire – he slices through cultural euphemism and political correctness with ease. These incisive social critiques make him one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. Entertainment Weekly even dubbed him the preeminent humorist of his generation.
Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, including Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller. He’s also recognized for his regular contributions to the NPR show This American Life.
Sedaris has published two books this year alone. The first, entitled Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002), was released in May 2017 and the other, David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium, came out this month.
This isn’t the first time Sedaris has taken the stage at Walton Arts Center. In fact, this is the sixth time for Sedaris to visit Northwest Arkansas – and each time the show is in high demand. If you’ve never seen David Sedaris, or even if you have, this is a show that’s guaranteed to make you laugh. Tickets start at $46 and can be purchased here.
