David Sedaris at The Egg

david sedarisThe Egg announced today that David Sedaris will be appearing there April 11 -- yep, as in 2013. Tickets go on sale September 7. They're $38.50 and $48.50.

Sure, this is like forever into the future. But if Sedaris' earlier appearances here are any indication, there's a good chance the show will sell out. Something to keep in mind if you think you might want to go.

If you've never seen Sedaris in in a live performance, (in our experience) it goes something like this: he reads a bit, he talks a bit, reads a little bit more, talks some more, people laugh -- sometimes not exactly sure of where they should. In other words, it's pretty much like a David Sedaris story.

(By the way: Sedaris has already appeared at the Palace and Proctors in the past. The Egg gives him a Capital Region hat trick. Congratulations, sir. Update: Both Eric and KJS alert us that Sedaris has already appeared at the The Egg. So he's starting on Capital Region hat trick #2.)

On the subject of performances next year: The Egg also announced that jazz vocalist/composer Kurt Elling will be performing there March 24. Ticket also go on sale next Friday. They're $29.50.

He's appeared at The Egg before- I remember seeing him there not all that long after 9-11. Security was still very heavy at the plaza.

Yeah - he was at the Egg many years ago. That was the first time I had ever seen him, and when he came out on stage I realized that I had come up in the elevator with him without knowing who he was.
