October 16, 2017

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner. He'll also give readings from his newest novel, Theft By Finding Diaries as part of his live engagements.

December 1, 2017

With the face of a teenager and a deep, rich voice that belie his 34 years of age, the Emmy-winning John Mulaney is a relatively new kid on the comedy block, taking the scene by storm with his acerbic, intelligent observational humour. A writer for Saturday Night Live (see the hilarious 'Stefon' sketches) and star of his 2014 self-titled sitcom on Fox, Mulaney resonates with his generation as he weathers the climes of adulthood and uncertainty, all the while coming across as an adorable geek.

Love him or hate him, the hugely controversial Leno followed in the footsteps of legendary NBC late-night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson as the host of the Emmy Award-winning and top-rated "The Tonight Show," until his last show in 2014. You would think that he would be eager for some downtime - instead, he continues to hone his sharp, good humored roasting and standup skills at engagements across the country, often exceeding 300 dates per year!
