David Sedaris

Fri., April 17, 8 p.m.

David Sedaris is funny – very funny, even – so why is it that whenever you read a blurb about him coming to perform, the descriptions make him sound so … dull? The blurb for his upcoming show at the Bob Carr Theater calls him one of our “pre-eminent humor writers” and talks about his “sardonic wit and incisive social critiques.” But in addition to being a brilliant writer and a keen observer of the human condition and whatnot, Sedaris is also absurdly, often crassly, hilarious. He’s the kind of guy who makes jokes about abortion that are both smart and dark (“If I were president, I would turn the tables and allow the fetus to abort its mother”). He’s not afraid to make poop jokes (“In my experience, a straight guy will shit anywhere”). He is self-deprecating (“Do I exaggerate? Boy, do I, and I’d do it more if I could get away with it”). He’ll talk about his family, his boyfriend, anxiety, flying, his love of picking up litter on the side of the road in the English countryside – basically, he’ll cover pretty much all the ground a typical stand-up comic will cover. Only when you go see Sedaris, no matter what he says, you won’t feel dirty and ashamed and a little sad that you laughed at his jokes. Instead, you’ll feel smarter – maybe even sardonic and incisive. $40

New Refractions

Ongoing, 6-9 p.m.

Twelve21 Gallery, known for their modestly sized, big-idea art shows, has moved out of their small walk-up in Ivanhoe Village and into a spot in the Orange Studio on Mills Ave. Though the street number, 1121, is off by a digit, they’re bringing the same level of contemporary art to their first exhibition there, New Refractions. The show features art by New York artist Andréa Stanislav, who creates collages out of bright colors, glitter and refractive film. The final products look something like shimmery, shiny explosions of color and images that top even the most retina-searing Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, calling attention to dichotomies of beauty versus horror, or reality versus surreality. It should be a bright, colorful show to kick off Twelve21’s bright, colorful future at their bright, colorful new home. free
