Master of Satire – Monday Magazine
MagicSpace Entertainment presents best-selling author and comedian David Sedaris at the Royal Theater on November 21st.
With a sardonic wit and incisive social criticism, Sedaris became one of America’s preeminent humor writers, beloved for his personal essays and short stories. He is a master of satire and one of today’s most attentive writers on the human condition.
A Sedaris story may seem confessional, but it is also very sensitive to the outside world. It opens our eyes to what is absurd and moving in our daily lives. And it’s almost impossible to read without laughing.
The most recent book from Sedaris, Happy-Go-Luckyis his first new collection of personal essays since the best-selling Calypso (2018). Other bestselling books include Speak to me nicely someday, when you’re engulfed in flames, and Let’s explore diabetes with the owls.
Sedaris was nominated for five Grammy Awards for Best Speaking and Best Comedy Album. He’s won the Jonathan Swift International Literature Prize for Satire and Humor, the Spoken Language Medal from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and more.
The November 21 show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $22.50 and can be purchased at rmts.bc.ca.
