He is one of the funniest writers and speakers of all time. I saw him in the late 90’s in a theater in New Jersey and all he was doing was reading from one of his books. Yes, standing behind a podium onstage with nothing but a book, himself, and his wry wit. And it was one of the most hilarious moments of my life. David Sedaris is the epitome of inherent humor. He was born with it, but his upbringing magnified the funny tenfold.
