  3. @ David Hearne
    Black people like David Sedaris too (or at least I do)

  4. They make a cute couple. I find Sedaris to be more amusing than funny.

  5. His last book - the one with animals in the title - was so completely unfunny, even depressing; I'm a little nervous about trying to read this one.

  6. I've come to realize I do not get the Sedaris family sense of humor.

  7. Oh shut up @David Hearne. You're a troll and every one knows it. Go find some poor kid to pester you miserable harridan.

    David Sedaris is awesome!!!! Check out his interview with NPR's Fresh Air host Terry Gross- hilarious and insightful.

  8. He looks great! Interesting how some people get more handsome with age.

  9. i thought the title of the book was hysterical - "Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls" - but this video was just nuts! Jon had trouble controlling himself he was laughing so hard. and for the record, i don't like sharing my dessert and never have, but my reason is more like 'it's mine! hands off! get your own.'

  11. Yeah David, not once did he say "bitches be shoppin'".

  12. I just saw him on tour this week, and he took questions from the audience. During that portion, he told these exact anecdotes with the exact same wording and timing. Nonetheless funny, but still...

  13. I love sedaris, and FO Hearne, I am also african american. What you should have said was "Upper-Middle Class American Humor" - becuase that fits.

  14. What's more shocking is that David Hearne recognizes humor when he sees it. Baby steps, David.

  15. David, I would classify it more accurately as intelligent people humor. Sorry you missed the joke.

  16. I'm with Ernest -- I've never found either of the Sedarii to be funny. [This doesn't mean that YOU can't find them funny, so don't go getting all defensive.]

  17. I'm naming my next pet Crumpet.

  18. I thought as a writer he was funny in his earliest books, but I still might buy this one in the hopes he got his groove back. This interview was very funny.

  19. If you're a roomful of people paying $50 to come hear me read out of a book, you can walk in bare-a$$ed nekkid. Just cut that check.

    But yeah, something similar-ish to this may have possibly happened. It's Sedaris' schtick. Don't think you're getting something spontaneous and authentic.

  20. He looks like Woody Allen's younger brother.

  21. Anything David and Amy are selling, I'm buying. Except Downy Unstoppables.

  22. That was hilarious.

    Posted by: EricD. | May 10, 2013 3:37:18 PM

  23. That clip was FUNNY!!! I'd eat the frosting, no problem!

    Posted by: John Simpson | May 10, 2013 3:50:36 PM

  24. I'm with the people who say he's amusing and not really laugh out loud funny.

    Posted by: Bobby | May 10, 2013 4:42:18 PM

  25. I <3 David!
    This was delightful.
