Muriel Kauffman Theatre

Until November 20, 2017

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner. He'll also give readings from his newest novel, Theft By Finding Diaries as part of his live engagements.
