PRESIDENT'S DISTINGUISHED SPEAKER SERIES: DAVID SEDARIS
Tuesday, October 22, 8:00 PM
The President’s Distinguished Speakers Series & The Visiting Artists Series will welcome award winning author, comedian and humorist David Sedaris.
David Sedaris is a frequent contributor to The New Yorker. He is the author of “Barrel Fever” (1994) and “Holidays on Ice” (1997), as well as four collections of personal essays: “Naked” (1997), “Me Talk Pretty One Day” (2000), “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim” (2004), “When You Are Engulfed in Flames” (2008), “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls” (2013), and “Theft by Finding: Diaries (1977-2002).” In 2005, he edited an anthology of stories, “Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules.” He has also regularly contributed personal essays to Esquire. Sedaris and his sister, Amy Sedaris, have collaborated under the name The Talent Family and have written several plays, including “Stump the Host”; “Stitches”; “One Woman Shoe,” which received an Obie Award; “Incident at Cobbler’s Knob”; and “The Book of Liz,” which was published in book form by the Dramatists Play Service.
Sedaris made his comic début on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, reading “SantaLand Diaries,” which recounted his strange but true experience working as a Macy’s elf clad in green tights. His original radio pieces can often be heard on the show “This American Life.” In 2001, Sedaris became the third recipient of the Thurber Prize for American Humor. In 2001, he was named “Humorist of the Year” by Time. In 2005, he was nominated for two Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word Album (“Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim”) and Best Comedy Album (“David Sedaris: Live at Carnegie Hall”).
