An Evening with David Sedaris

Token Events & Show and Tell present: An Evening with David Sedaris

Best-selling American author and humourist David Sedaris has announced a highly anticipated fourth sojourn to Australia following his previous sold out tours.

Having recently released his latest book, Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002), Sedaris will visit Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra for a series of live performances featuring all-new stories and observations plus audience Q&As and book signings.

A regular contributor to The New Yorker, over the course of his career Sedaris has penned the critically acclaimed books 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.

Guaranteed to be bursting with his signature acerbic wit and razor-sharp social critiques, don’t miss your chance to spend an evening with one of the world’s pre-eminent humour writers.

“It’s helpful to see that a voice as original, hilarious and sometimes as infuriating as his was put through the same Struggle and Starve meat grinder that most of us go through.” —Patton Oswalt, New York Times Book Review

“Sedaris’ observations about the ordinary, the random and the minutiae make for laugh-out-loud entertainment.” Sydney Morning Herald
