The Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech presents the satire and incisive social critiques of author and humorist David Sedaris on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

The sold-out performance, “An Evening with David Sedaris,” will be held in the Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre, located within the Moss Arts Center’s Street and Davis Performance Hall at 190 Alumni Mall. 

With sardonic wit and observations addressing the human condition, Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. He is the author of “Barrel Fever” and “Holidays on Ice,” collections of personal essays, and his most recent book, “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls.” His pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.”

He and sister Amy Sedaris have collaborated to write plays that have been produced at La Mama, the Lincoln Center, and The Drama Department in New York City. Often heard on public radio’s “This American Life,” Sedaris has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy albums.

Sedaris’ performance is recommended for mature audiences, as it may contain adult themes and language.

Immediately following the performance, Sedaris will be available in the Moss Arts Center Grand Lobby for a free book signing event. His books will also be available for purchase.

Parking is available in the North End Parking Garage on Turner Street. Virginia Tech faculty and staff possessing a valid Virginia Tech parking permit can enter and exit the garage free of charge. Limited street parking is also available. Parking on Alumni Mall is free on weekdays after 5 p.m. and on weekends.
