David Sedaris, humorist, bestselling author and star of the BBC Radio 4 series ‘Meet David Sedaris’, has announced a UK tour for autumn 2017. The 7-date tour starts at London’s Royal Festival Hall on 2nd September and finishes at the Brighton Dome on 12th September, taking in Manchester, Bristol and Edinburgh in between.
Anyone who has seen Sedaris live previously will know that extracts read from his diaries form an often hilarious moment in the show. For the first time and ahead of these new dates, Sedaris has published his diaries entitled ‘Theft By Finding (Volume ONE; David Sedaris Diaries 1977-2003)’.
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humour writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.
