In The Area: David Sedaris.

A Frined Of Mine Had Mentioned How Funny David Sedaris Was, So, I Had Decided To Check Him Out. Turns Out, He's Genius. Here's A Bit About Him, And Why You Should Check Him Out.

David Sedaris (born December 26, 1956) is a Grammy Award-nominated Greek-American humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor.

Sedaris was first publicly recognized in 1992 when National Public Radio broadcast his essay "SantaLand Diaries". He published his first collection of essays and short stories, Barrel Fever, in 1994. Each of his five subsequent essay collections, Naked (1997), Holidays on Ice (1997), Me Talk Pretty One Day (2000), Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim (2004), and When You Are Engulfed in Flames (2008), have become New York Times Best Sellers.

As of 2008, his books have collectively sold seven million copies. Much of Sedaris's humor is autobiographical and self-deprecating, and often concerns his family life, his middle class upbringing in the suburbs of Raleigh, North Carolina, Greek heritage, various jobs, education, drug use, homosexuality, and his life in France with his partner, Hugh Hamrick.

He has two shows, in the Chicagoland area, both in April.
