What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Winner, Humor, 2004

"Sedaris' 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)

    "Touching, if not always funny"

    This is classic David Sedaris. While there were only a couple of stories that did have me laughing out loud, those were the ones he does live with an audience, all of the stories told are touching, authentic, quirky, and at least put-a-smile-on-your-face amusing. While I can't quite rave about this audio book I certainly enjoyed it and would recommend it.

    "Outrageously funny."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I do. David Sedaris' reading of an already great book furthers into the upper echelon of humor. His sardonic wit transfers very well in audio form; his inflections and comedic timing are spot on.

    "PERFECT EASY LISTENING"

    Delivered deadpan, this memoir is a joy. Very funny and evocative of time and place. Wonderfully read by David Sedaris himself. It's perfect easy listening, good to pick up as and when you can. Thoroughly recommend.

    "Funny looks on public transport"

    I made the mistake of listening to this for the first time on a long train trip. This caused a lot of embarrassment since it is genuinely laugh out loud funny! David Sedaris reads the essays himself and get the timing just right for maximum amusement.



    I first heard of him from a few readings he did on Radio 4. A couple of those essays are repeated here but there is more than enough unheard material to make this a worthwhile purchase.
