David Sedaris is speaking at the Providence Performing Arts Center tonight at 8 p.m. He will be reading and speaking about some of his past stories, as well as highlighting some new pieces. Sedaris is best known for his snarky humor and engaging stories about his past, his childhood, and other experiences, many of which have been featured on NPR’s This American Life. Some of his most well-known books are Me Talk Pretty One Day and When You Were Engulfed in Flames, and his topics are as diverse as his former smoking addiction, his experience at a mental asylum, and the mental games he puts himself through for sheer entertainment. His unmistakeable voice and tongue-in-cheek humor make him an awesome comic presence.
