Summary

Summary

If you are driving, pull over. If you are at work, close your door—unless you don’t mind your colleagues seeing you doubled over, in tears, on your office floor. With these two shows, recorded before delirious sold-out audiences, you are there as David Sedaris performs his hilarious stories. A parrot who mimics an ice maker, lovers quarreling over a rubber hand, and a Santa Claus who moonlights from his job as bishop of Turkey—the cast of characters in these stories is like no other. This set appeals to Sedaris’ loyal fans as well as admirers of classic comedy albums of George Carlin, Bill Cosby, and Steve Martin.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Expect Sedaris's signature style—nasal, easy to listen to, and entertaining, especially when he does his deadpan delivery of astonishingly funny lines. This is a real treat for old fans, and an inexpensive introduction for new ones.” AudioFile on Live at Carnegie Hall
“As always, Sedaris is in fine form reading his own material—he has great comic timing, and the addition of appreciative live audiences is welcome, enhancing his performance and making listeners feel like they’re laughing right along with the rest of a crowded auditorium.”  AudioFile on Live for Your Listening Pleasure
“A master of the pregnant pause and king of cockeyed deadpan, Sedaris is at the top of his game in these five live performances.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Live for Your Listening Pleasure
