Overview

Bestselling humorist Sedaris likes to test out new material on twice-a-year reading tours to get the rhythm and phrasing perfected before he puts them down on the page. This live recording of his sold out October 22, 2002, reading at Manhattan's Carnegie Hall finds Sedaris performing debuting new stories, all captured in this audiobook. They include a parrot who mimics an ice maker, lovers quarrelling over a rubber hand, and a Santa Claus who moonlights from his job as bishop of Turkey.

The previously uncollected Christmas story on this CD,(now in the updated edition of Holidays on Ice), "Six to Eight Black Men," is so funny, I literally had to pull over to the side of the road when I listened to it for the first time. It was raining, and I was laughing so hard that I couldn't see where I was going anymore. While Me Talk Pretty One Day is my favorite collection of his, that story is by far my favorite.

The thing about NPR being a conspiracy of Jews--brilliant. Also, the Stadium Pal. I think about it a lot. I mean, not that I would want one, but that it was kind of a good idea, too bad it didn't work.

There are very few things that make me laugh out loud, and this is one of them (the cautions from the publisher about driving while listening are not exaggerated). If you've never read or heard of David Sedaris, buy this CD. Everyone I played this for, from my husband to my dad, thoroughly enjoyed it. There are touching moments (his account of a visit with his older sister, Lisa) thrown in that make this a keeper. Repeat after me: 'WE - LOVE - YOU - DAVID!'

David Sedaris is easily one of the funniest writers around today. I was doubled over in laughter throughout most of this. Anyone familiar with his work will absolutely love 'Live at Carnegie Hall'!
