About this event
David Sedaris is smart, he’s biting, and he’s one of the world’s best storytellers. He skilfully slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness in his droll assessment of the absurdity that teems just below the surface of everyday life. And he is hilarious.
You might have heard his hit series for BBC Radio 4, or maybe you’re one of the millions across the world who have read his bestselling books. Now, hear the devastatingly funny man on stage with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. This one-off evening of words and music will leave you in stitches, even if – or perhaps because – the programme is entitled ‘Death knows no season’!
“Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.” —San Francisco Chronicle
