David Sedaris returns to Benaroya Hall

Humorist and author David Sedaris will return to Puget Sound on Nov. 17 for an appearance at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall. Tickets are on sale now for the 8 p.m. show.

The author’s fans, sometimes called “Sedaristas,” often sell out his readings. The dryly sardonic Sedaris is expected to share both published stories and works-in-progress.

Here’s more from the announcement:

David Sedaris may well be the closest thing the literary world has these days to a rock star. His sardonic wit and incisive social critiques have made him one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which Sedaris slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that he is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. He is the author of the books “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls,” “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk,” “When You Are Engulfed in Flames,” “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim,” “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” “Holidays on Ice,” “Naked,” and “Barrel Fever.” He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker and NPR's “This American Life.” He lives in England.

Northwest Associated Arts (NWAA) and The Stranger present David Sedaris. Tickets are $54 or $45 and available through the Benaroya Hall Box Office, at 206-215-4747 or online at
