DAVID SEDARIS

DURHAM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, DURHAM

SATURDAY, APRIL 18

Humor at its best is born from the mundane, the little incidents we endure every relentless day. The behavior of siblings, inadvertently dropping something in a stranger's lap, learning French, opportunities not seized, birds flying into your home's windows—all such happenings are seeds that David Sedaris cultivates into on-point elucidations of life's absurdities in his many comic memoirs (the latest is Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls). His forte is bringing a fresh perspective to what we've all lived through. His satire will make you laugh; his ability to find the humanity in a scene will make you think. Having spent his childhood in the Triangle, perhaps he'll have a special observation or two just for us. So break out your finest corduroy and denim and get thee to DPAC. 3 and 8 p.m., $50–$100, 123 Vivian St., 919-680-2787,
