David Sedaris returns to Australia & New Zealand

“To see Sedaris live is pure joy. To watch this bookish, culotte-evangelising man read his life’s work on stage is word-nerd heaven, best topped off by spending three minutes with his full attention at the book-signing table after a show.” The Saturday Paper

The critically acclaimed author, humourist and master of satire David Sedaris returns to Australia and New Zealand in January and February for an evening filled with storytelling, observations, unpublished tales, audience Q&A and book signings.

The tour commences in Auckland on 31 January before starting an Australian tour in Canberra on 1 February and then travelling to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney and Brisbane.
