David Sedaris, the master of satire and one of today’s most observant writers addressing the human condition, returns with the acerbic humor, social commentary, and outlandish stories that transfixed a sold-out audience at his last year’s ArtPower show. Slashing through cultural euphemisms and political correctness, he will delight the audience with twists of humor and intelligence as he shares both published stories and works-in-progress.

Come early or stick around post-performance for Sedaris’s legendary book-signing sessions. Books will be available to purchase from Warwick’s.
