Sedaris, who grew up in Raleigh, N.C., and who now lives with his partner Hugh in London, is known for his slanted humor and sharp wit, a largely first-person essayist/social satirist who isn’t afraid to make fun of himself for our amusement. Take this random observation from his latest New Yorker piece: “Hotel operators so often address me as ‘Mrs. Sedaris’ that I no longer bother to correct them. I’ve been mistaken for a parent, a pickpocket, and even, God forbid, an SUV owner, and I’ve always been able to brush it off.” Expect similar self-deprecating statements to fall from Sedaris’ lips during his latest speaking tour. $40-$53. 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3. Aronoff Center for the Arts, 650 Walnut St., Downtown. 513-621-2787, cincinnatiarts.org.
