If you've ever read any of his many books (the latest entitled Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls), you know that David Sedaris is a hilarious and heartfelt storyteller. The Chicago Tribune says of him, "Sedaris' droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world's crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today." While reading his words on the page or hearing him on public radio is a treat, seeing the talented satirist in person is the icing on the cake, and now you can get a big dollop of that icing when Sedaris comes to Symphony Hall as part of the Celebrity Series of Boston. With this exclusive pre-sale offer, get access to prime seats before they go on sale to the general public. Learn More

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.
In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (“Don’t quit your day job!”), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded 29 albums, including their latest, Barackin’ Around the Christmas Tree and Obama Mia! They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
