Life is funny

Sedaris takes the mundane (and the not-so) and delivers a monologue full of wit and charm. By turns laugh out loud funny, wistfully poignant and grin-achingly good.
I've loved every series but this one has some cracking moments.
Sit back with a glass of red or a decent cuppa and enjoy.
