Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

David Sedaris has taken on many roles throughout his career. He's an award-winning humorist, accomplished playwright, a beloved radio performer; but if you asked him what artistic endeavor he most identifies with, Sedaris would tell you he's first and foremost a writer. Beginning with his first essay collection in 1994, Barrel Fever, Sedaris has earned critical praise, as well as legions of fans, for his revealing, at times darkly humorous, personal essays. He has released numerous books of personal essays - six of which have become bestsellers on the New York Times list - as well as a 2010 collection of animal-themed short stories, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk. In addition to his writing, Sedaris is also a frequent contributor to NPR's weekly radio program "This American Life," as well as an in-demand figure on the public-speaking circuit, having read his personal essays to countless sold-out auditoriums. In 2013, the feature comedy "C.O.G." ("Child of God"), which was inspired by an essay from Sedaris's 1997 collection, Naked, appeared in theaters. Although previous attempts to adapt his work had been made in the past, the film was the first big-screen adaptation of a Sedaris story. ...
