"Sedaris's material (Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day) is never funnier than when he's reading it himself." (AudioFile)
"David Sedaris Live at Carnegie Hall is a rollicking comedic masterpiece...this recording will deservedly take its rightful place among the best comedy albums of our time." (AudiobooksTODAY.com)
"As uproarious as Sedaris is on the page, he's even funnier reading his wickedly jaundiced reflections. With brilliant deadpan timing, Sedaris is a charm." (Publishers Weekly)
Purchased this book based on reviews. What a mistake. I generally think that my opinions on comedy are fairly mainstream. I can only think that the overwhelming positive reviews are based on something other than David's comedy. The publisher's mention of David in the same light as George Carlin, Bill Cosby, and Steve Martin outrageous. David does not come close to these great comedians.
I guess I was hoping to be rolling over the floor laughing at least once. DS has an hour to make this happen, you know, as a professional comedian ... it did not happen.
this is not funny... the guys voice is very annoying, and he is reading from a book or something the whole time with the tone you would expect from a 4th grader thats reading their book report infront of the class... very borring.. cant imagine why the audience is laughing.. Dont buy this if your expecting somewhat of a stand up comedy =/
