Bestselling author David Sedaris was discovered in Chicago by This American Life’s Ira Glass, who heard Sedaris reading selections from his diary in a club. The passages detailed his time working as an elf in Santa’s Village at Macy’s in New York, where he told a misbehaving child that “[Santa] no longer traffics in coal. Instead, if you’re bad, he comes to your house and steals things.”
These excerpts eventually became “The Santaland Diaries,” which he recorded for NPR and included in his 1995 collection of essays and stories, Barrel Fever. Sedaris followed up this effort with more hilarious observations and recollections in other books, including Me Talk Pretty One Day. In one essay, he recounts his time spent as an unqualified teacher at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he made his classes watch soap operas and assigned them “guessays” to write about what would happen in the next episodes.
During his live performances, Sedaris reads from a wealth of material that showcases his satirical tone and biting social critique. The show may also include bits from his latest book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, a collection of globetrotting essays that explore absurdities around the world, from the bizarre eating habits of the Australian kookaburra to squat-style toilets in Beijing. Sedaris will be on hand afterward to sign fans’ books and cocktail napkins inscribed with their unfinished Great American Novels.
