David Sedaris

Painfully funny

Humorist David Sedaris will spend an intimate evening with his audience Oct. 14 at Stephens Auditorium. An author, National Public Radio commentator and playwright, Sedaris will read excerpts from his work, followed by an informal Q&A with the audience. He also will be available after the show to sign copies of his books.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are $35 and $43 for adults, $28 for youth and $25 for ISU students. Purchase them online, by phone (800-745-3000) or at the Stephens box office. Des Moines-based theater critic John Taylor Busbee will host a Celebrity Café presentation about Sedaris prior to the show (7 p.m., Stephens third floor), which is included in the price of admission.
