Fans get a preview of Sedaris’ next essay collection in this live performance. As he draws from a mix of recent Esquire submissions and new book material, this recording has an even lighter feel than his previous one. Family, fashion, and fake arms aren’t safe from his eccentric, hilarious observations. “Six to Eight Black Men,” an essay on Holland’s Christmas customs, will send listeners into hysterics. Expect Sedaris’ signature style: nasal, easy to listen to, and entertaining, especially when he does his deadpan delivery of astonishingly funny lines. This is a real treat for old fans, and a great introduction for new ones.

Quotes & Awards

  • “As uproarious as Sedaris is on the page, he’s even funnier reading his wickedly jaundiced reflections. With brilliant deadpan timing, Sedaris is a charm, whether being coaxed into purchasing his clothes in the women's department by his sister Amy.”

    " A nice little one-shot of David Sedaris humor... made me want to listen to more of his stuff on audiobook, since his delivery is so great. A fun way to spend a couple days' commute to work, but I'm not sure there's anything from this that I'll remember a week from now. "
