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 this recording, taped before a delirious sold out audience at Carnegie Hall, you are there as David Sedaris performs new stories from his upcoming book. A parrot who mimics an ice maker, lovers quarrelling 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 new work will appeal to David's loyal fans as well as admirers of the classic comedy albums of George Carlin, Bill Cosby and Steve Martin. Recorded live on October 22, 2002 in New York City.


Beschreibung von Audible

Audible Selects are what your ears have been waiting for. Hand-chosen by our editors, they represent the most intriguing and enjoyable listening experiences anywhere, and we take great delight and pride in sharing this one with you.

Sedaris proves that family memoir humor doesn't have to have a lowest-common-denominator appeal. The frustrating thing is you don't know whether to laugh with him or cry for him. Either way, it's a scream. His work reveals an extremely sharp mind and prodigious, penetrating insight.

Here, he's live at Carnegie Hall and just when his modest voice seems to get swallowed up in the environment, he delivers a punch line with such precision and clarity that the audience can't help but fall hard for him.. It's clear Sedaris writes and speaks as much for his own amusement as for ours, and that makes him even more likeable as a performer. Very funny stuff from a very funny, contemporary humorist whose pathetic tales have inspired a very delightful Audible Select.



Audie Award Winner, Humor, 2004
" Sedaris' material (Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day) is never funnier than when he's reading it himself." (AudioFile)
"David Sedaris Live at Carnegie Hall is a rollicking comedic masterpiece....This recording will deservedly take its rightful place among the best comedy albums of our time." (AudiobooksTODAY.com)
"As uproarious as Sedaris is on the page, he's even funnier reading his wickedly jaundiced reflections. With brilliant deadpan timing, Sedaris is a charm." (Publishers Weekly)
