Want to spend an evening with David Sedaris? The best-selling author, humorist, and NPR speaker is set to visit the Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland on Tuesday, October 21 at 8PM. Come out to join Sedaris for a reading and Q&A session for attendees, as well as a book signing for those who get the first come, first serve passes. The author of Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and most recently, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, is not just a nationally-known author, but honestly, a master of all trades. Sedaris has produced audiobooks, frequently contributes to The New Yorker, has written and produced plays with his sister Amy, and read radio pieces on the NPR show “This American Life”.

His humor has been touted as his most notable characteristic, as his stories include autobiographical and usually self-deprecating aspects, most often concerning his family, Greek heritage, jobs, education, drug use, obsessive behaviors, relationships, and his life abroad. Sedaris has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album, and has most recently been featured in the documentary film by David Thorpe, Do I Sound Gay? which focuses on the perception of the gay male voice.Diabetes w Owls - Pittsburgh Events

Sedaris has appeared on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart multiple times, and on his latest appearance he confessed to polling the guests at his shows to get stats on his latest theories. One of his recent poll questions directed at men was: ‘Would a guy share a dessert with another guy?’ To hear more of the thoughts and questions of Sedaris, make sure to hit up his reading, and see what all the hype is about!
