Quotes & Highlights
“David Rakoff knows the incantatory power of a story well-told, the art of keeping words aloft like the bubbles in a champagne flute.” —Los Angeles Times
Humorist, essayist, author, actor, and popular contributor to public radio’s This American Life, David Rakoff specializes in skewering a culture of vanity, consumerism, and greed, delving into the frenzied acquiring and spending that often defines our contemporary way of life. Familiar to Cal Performances audiences from his past appearances with David Sedaris and Ira Glass, Rakoff has also written two New York Times bestsellers, Fraud and Don’t Get Too Comfortable, establishing him as one of today’s funniest, most insightful social commentators.
