David Sedaris, the best-selling American author and humourist is returning Down Under to host a series of live shows in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane in January 2018.

After previous sold out tours, Sedaris is hitting the Aussie road for his fourth sojourn, following the recent release of his latest book the Theft By Finding”: Diaries (1977 – 2002). Audiences will be entertained with the masterful writer’s series of live performances featuring all-new and unpublished stories and observations, plus audience Q&As and book signings.

His most recent work provides a rare and personal insight into the diary entries of a unique and modern observer, which are a potent reminder that there’s no such thing as a boring day.

A regular contributor to The New Yorker, over the course of his career, Sedaris has penned the revered books Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays including Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls.

Sedaris is well known to burst with his signature acerbic wit and razor-sharp social critiques at these shows; a rare  chance to spend an evening with one of the world’s pre-eminent humour writers.
