When Santaland Diaries was first broadcast on NPR's Morning Edition in 1992, David Sedaris quickly went from struggling writer to everybody's favorite everything, everywhere. By now, his tale is undoubtedly familiar: Sedaris spent one bleak New York winter working as a Macy's elf (chosen elf name: Crumpet), and wrote about the experience in his diary. Discovered by This American Life host Ira Glass in a Chicago nightclub, Sedaris was invited on the radio, one appearance led to another, and the rest is humor history. It's just that easy, kids! In 1997, the now-classic essay was transformed into a one-man show and has since become a holiday staple all over the country. Tonight, Bay Area favorite David Sinaiko dons Crumpet's tights, hat, and dissatisfaction, and brings Sedaris' true story to the stage. Escape the craziness of the holidays by watching a show about it.
