Almost single-handedly, David Sedaris
has made spoken-word performances hip. Hes a pioneer of the dysfunctional generation that has no problem airing its dirty laundry in public. Over the past decade and a half, Sedaris has hilariously dished on co-workers, exes, and, most famously, his family. His grousing has been featured on radio (his nasal NPR spots kill), in books (Me Talk Pretty One Day
is the best of his essay collections), and on CD (he was nominated for a pair of Grammys this year for Dress Your Family in Corduroy & Denim
and Live at Carnegie Hall
). Hes even better onstage, where his exasperation and wit shine.
