This is neither the time nor the place for johnny-come-lately arrivistes to learn about the 11 acclaimed and beloved books of caustic elegance David Sedaris has published since failing upwards from his job as a Christmas elf at Macy’s in 1992. Today we are not serving your kind, so try Wikipedia. Sorry to be harsh, but the Keswick show is way sold out, so this one goes out to the lifers, the true believers, or perhaps more aptly, the true non-believers. You and me, pal, we’re the loonies. Did you know that? I bet you didn’t know that. But enough with the Sondheim references already. We have a couple pair of tix to see David Sedaris at the Keswick tomorrow night — and get this, one pair is FRONT ROW! To qualify to win them, you must be signed up for our mailing list (see right, below the masthead). Trust us you want to do this. You get first dibs on concert ticket giveaways, breaking news alerts and other assorted be-the-first-on-your-block type shit. After you sign up, send us an email at PHAWKER66@GMAIL.COM saying as much (or that you were already signed up) along with the correct answer to the following trick question: What year did David Sedaris graduate from Princeton? Put the words ME SIT PRETTY SOME DAY (HOPEFULLY AT THE KESWICK) in the subject line, along with your full name as it appears on your photo ID and a mobile number for confirmation (this information will neither be shared nor stored, FYI). Good luck and godspeed!
