Possibly the most hysterical siblings since the Marx Brothers, Amy and David Sedaris have written The Book of Liz, a zany stage play about discovering your own self-worth. First discovered on NPR, David has since written a series of bestsellers which include Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked and When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Amy was the star of Comedy Central's Strangers With Candy and continues to be an ubiquitous (and hilarious) presence on film and TV. Together they have written The Book of Liz about the outrageous adventures of Sister Elizabeth Donderstock, a devoted maker of cheeseballs who ventures out of her tiny religious community to encounter a host of colorful characters -- including Ukrainians with cockney accents, restaurants run by recovering alcoholics and a certain talking peanut.

This was just average for me. Agree with another reviewer that it was not the actors but the material. It didn't really keep my attention and I did not find it that funny. There were a few funny parts. It seemed like the production people were laughing more than the audience. On a positive note, the actors played multiple characters well. One patron leaving said it did not remind him of Sedaris at all. I am not familiar with Sedaris' material so I cannot make a valid comparison. I have just heard that Sedaris is funny yet this wasn't too funny.
