When I picked up my copy of “Me Talk Pretty One Day” by David Sedaris almost 10 years ago, I was afraid. I had heard from friends, who chuckled while their faces stretched into big smiles, that David Sedaris was funny and that I would love him. I was afraid I would be disappointed – like after seeing a movie I had been excited about that just didn’t deliver. I grabbed the book and didn’t take the time to flip through the pages. I hurriedly walked to the cash register, paid for the book, and opened it in my car. Within a minute, I was laughing. It wasn’t a reserved or polite laugh. It was a sincere loud laugh that caught me off-guard. I’ve been a fan ever since.
David Sedaris has earned numerous awards for his work including Thurber Prize for American Humor, and “Humorist of the Year” by Time magazine. His books have been translated into 25 languages and over seven million copies of his books have been sold. Four of his collections of personal essays have become bestsellers.
The only thing better than reading one of David Sedaris’ books is seeing and hearing him in person – as long as you are ready to accept the fact that the sound of your own laughter will probably prevent you from hearing everything he says. The Wells Fargo Center for the Arts presents David Sedaris on Saturday, October 30, 2010 in their Ruth Finley Person Theater. The Person Theater has over 1,000 seats and there is no such thing as a bad seat in this entire venue. This is the perfect place to see and hear why David Sedaris has earned a faithful, international following.
