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
Reviews & Ratings
The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh trio that will perform live on The Hanover Theatre Stage. Come and laugh away the winter blahs!
The clover — make that clever — comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; and from Dublin, Ireland Keith Aherne.
Audiences howl at Richards’ tales about his mom’s dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel’s Top 10.
McCarthy’s no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The “comedy barbarian,” as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society’s most sensitive topics.
And finally Aherne, who has performed with many of his home country’s favorite acts, including comedian Brendan Grace and The Dublin City Ramblers, will add authentic Irish music to the show.
The irreverent trio, which just released a DVD titled Dublin’ Over, has performed at venues across the country.
