Loved It.

I am so glad I bought a ticket to see him... I had tears (of laughter) streaming down my cheeks throughout some of his material. I was sorry to read a couple of the comments from other audience members that mentioned they were unable to hear him well; when he initially started speaking, I, too, struggled a bit to hear him, but I think the sound crew made an adjustment... not a significant one, but just enough that I wasn't straining to hear him; I would have gotten up and gone directly to the sound board to let them know if I wasn't able to, and it's too bad they didn't. The writer who opened for him was wonderful, and I'm now trying to locate her name on the internet; her writing had me crying I was laughing so hard one moment, to weeping from sadness, and all within the space of 5-10 minutes -- that's a powerful skillset she has. I had a wonderful time at this performance, and I look forward to his return to Boston in the years to come! :)

While I have been a fan of his books forever and have enjoyed watching him through clips from media coverage, I wondered what will he do on stage live? Will he read from his various books, take questions from the audience? Who cares I thought just go...well it was a spectacular, engaging, thought provoking evening filled with so much deep burst out laughing, gasps of OMG did he just say that??? and moments laced with tenderness. I absolutely LOVED the whole evening. He is brilliant and has such a wonderful combination of skills, with a gigantic capacity to touch the human spirit. Highly recommend.

Sedaris Spot On! Sound System Poor Quality!

M.S. from Boston, Massachusetts
13th April 2024

Boston Symphony Hall, seat location, second balcony right, seats 38 & 39 A (Basically front row of second balcony, center) David’s performance was on point! Criticisms of site lines one has to take lightly since the venue is a concert hall. The unfortunate situation, that really detracted from the performance, was the horrible sound system. For the first half of the performance, one could barely understand one out of every three words, the volume needed to be much higher just to hear the show clearly.

David Sedaris State Theater

David was signing books before the show (and after). The show started 15 minutes late and he introduced a local writing master's program student and allowed her to read her story early in his program. Read essays he'd written over the summer, audience laughed a lot.

Sedaris - Effluent discharging of humor? Bawdy - I'll take a refund, please.

Left early - a little pathetic - one has to pay for homes in NY, Sussex and Paris.
