NYT Bestseller David Sedaris To Speak At State Theatre April 18

New York Times bestselling author and comedian David Sedaris will appear at the State Theatre for a speaking engagement at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18.

Tickets will be available for public purchase beginning on Friday, December 16. Reserved seating costs $59.50, while premium tickets can be purchased for $64.50.

“An Evening with David Sedaris” is a one-night-only event that will include all-new readings and stories from the author, as well as a book signing and a question and answer session.

According to the State Theatre’s website, the event will be “a unique opportunity to see the best-selling humorist in an intimate setting.”

Sedaris is best known for award-winning books such as “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” “Calypso,” and “Naked” — the latter of which was adapted into “C.O.G.,” a feature film starring Jonathan Groff. “An Evening with David Sedaris” is partially to promote the release of his new book, “Happy-Go-Lucky,” which was released in May 2022.

In addition to authoring numerous books, Sedaris has been a frequent contributor to the New Yorker and NPR, and he has appeared on television shows “BoJack Horseman” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” In 2005, Sedaris was nominated for two Grammy Awards.
