No one is funnier reading their own words!

David Sedaris at his best! I laughed all the way through this hour plus talk. I just love how his mind works. He has perfect timing, he lets the audience laugh and catch up to his next funny line.

Loved it!

Picked this up tentatively since it had some negative reviews, but it had me cracking up in the car and giggling in the super market...

Couldn't stop laughing

I was listening to this on an airplane, and was afraid I was disturbing others because I just couldn't stop laughing. Great fun!
