David Sedaris at Proctors

david sedarisAuthor David Sedaris will talking/reading (we're guessing) at Proctors on April 9. Tickets are already on sale. They start at $20. His appearances in the this area have been very popular in the past (at least one sold out).

The blurbage doesn't say exactly what Sedaris will be doing at Proctors. The times we've seen him, he stands on stage and reads his work, then talks a little bit, reads some more, talks some more, the audience laughs in odd places (not sure exactly when they're supposed to laugh), and then he says goodnight. So, pretty much what you'd expect from David Sedaris.

Sedaris' most recent book is Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, a collection of short stories in which the characters are animals. For example: "Can a parrot and a pot-bellied pig find happiness in a world that only wants to pigeon-hole them?"

A clip from Sedaris' November appearance on the Daily Show is embedded after the jump.

Imagine if a mixed use development - apartments, townhouses, restaurants, offices, a park - were built on the Rensselaer riverfront, and people on both sides could go to work and go out in either Albany or Renss, just by walking to a gondola station? If people had reason to traverse the Hudson - in both directions - for a reason other than commuting or getting to/from the train station, a gondola could be an awesome (and financially self-sustaining) idea, that also cuts down on the need for parking. ...
