I saw Sedaris on Monday Night.

He read 4 new essays - all of them hysterical.

He signed my copies of Holidays on Ice and Naked- "In appreciation of your $upport and reader$hip" and
"Thanks for making me rich".

He is very small and his bodygaurd is very big.

If you get the chance -- go see him! <p>"Damn you. You're taking my encyclopedias. This is humiliating."</p>

If you ever see Sedaris on tour, bring a sleeping bag for his signature afterwards. You'll be waiting a looooong time. He is so kind to his fans. In Washington, DC, it takes 40 minutes just to get 30 people past because he talks to anyone who wants to talk to him. The ushers are always trying to get him to sign faster and walk through the line telling people to keep their comments short, and noone ever listens. :-) He was kind enough to sign my book and take a picture with me so I'm not complaining. I've seen him twice (once alone, once with Sarah Vowell) and he is just awesome. I think someone already posted this link, but just so it stays fresh in the thread, here it is again: <!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://home.pacifier.com/~paddockt/sedaris.html">home.pacifier.com/~paddockt/sedaris.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END-->

A friend just bought me <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong><!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>Live at Carnegie Hall</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--></strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> on cd, so not exactly on topic of books…but might be out on book…not sure, but did have time to find any other David S. threads. Sorry!

He says he knows I will just love it since I had a lot of DS other works on cd. Here is what I found, only a little helpful until I get time to pop the package and indulge:
<!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/1586215647/ref=pe_snp647" target="top">www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/1586215647/ref=pe_snp647 </a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->
<p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END-->"There is a sense of well-being that comes from having a clear sense of life's meaning and a wholesome rhythm of labor, relaxation, and worship." text (Hutterites, Montana, 1987-1996) by Laura Wilson in "The Enclosed World"; APERTURE, Summer 1996 </p>

I just bought Me Talk Pretty today, and I don't expect to be social until it's done.

I am SO excited...

i'm glad to see that there's a sedaris thread. just to let everyone know, his new book 'dress your family in corduroy and denim: essays' is going to be released on june 1, 2004. just thought you would all like to know because maybe you're looking forward to it as much as i am.

and about the audio tapes...yes! i totally dig the tapes of sedaris and he's the only author i can say that about. in fact, when this new book comes out, i'll probably get it on audio. i love just getting in my car and having the middle of a story pop on because it really doesn't matter where you start to catch the hilarity. i think i like picapocketoni from me talk pretty... the one where his boyfriend and he are on the subway and the stranger thinks they're french and can't speak english...it's a good one.

He and his sister, Amy, were in EW's top 25 funny people about a month ago.
I haven't actually read any of his stuff, but I've listened to all of "Me talk pretty one day". Love it.

Too bad they don't have fatboy sizes. That's my favorite story.

If I was computer savy I would put the picture up here myself, but since I'm not, go to Yahoo and search under images for David Sedaris. There is this great picture of Amy Sedaris and him striking an action pose, both dressed in form fitting black outfits. David Sedaris is wearing a monkey mask.
(Do you have to be computer savy to put a picture on here? Probably not. I've just never done it before.)

Pretty good new story on This American Life a couple of weeks ago. I enjoy his mini radio plays with animals.
Cat and Mouse (About a half hour in-click on the real player icon.)

I also like this onefrom nine years ago quite a bit.
