David Sedaris

8:00 PM Monday, May 4 at the Arlington Theatre

DAVID SEDARIS……The New York Times calls David Sedaris: “The closest thing the literary world has these days to a rock star.” His last two books, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, both appeared on the New York Times' Bestsellers List. His books have sold over seven million copies.

Sedaris’ talent for creating hilarious, self-depreciating stories has made him not only a bestselling author, but a wildly successful comedian and radio personality. Time Out New York says, “David Sedaris just may be the funniest man alive.” 

For a memorable addition to your evening with David Sedaris at the Arlington Theatre on May 4th, stick around AFTER the show for his book signing. He’s famous for these.

When asked by Lillian Cunningham, in an interview for the Washington Post, “what influenced his well-known habit of taking a lot of time with readers at book signings and events?” Sedaris had this to say:

“When I first moved to Chicago, there was a bookstore near me called the Unabridged Bookstore. I remember I went and saw this author and I bought her book — it was a hardcover book, and it was a lot of money at the time. I waited in line and when I got up there she didn’t look at me, she didn’t talk to me. She was talking to her publicist about what she was going to do for dinner. And I felt so betrayed. I just thought--I believed in you. And this was a lot of money. If it’s ever me at that table, things are going to be different.

“So I was at Harvard’s bookstore the night before last and I signed books for eight hours and 45 minutes. People were like, “Well, let me let you go.” I keep them so long at the table that they’re just desperate to get away from me!”

He will make you laugh…guaranteed! So don’t miss the opportunity for an evening with David Sedaris at the Arlington Theatre on May 4th.

Consider Benchmark Eatery for dinner before the show. A recent customer said:Kudos to the super sweet manager that made sure we were having a good time!”
