The Chicago Tribune ran  a review of one of his sold-out shows from the current tour at Chicago’s Steppenwolf, where the critic suggested one might expect to encounter

a deliciously sycophantic crowd of NPR-loving groupies ready to hang on the reading of his every not-quite-finished word and dine out for days on the fact that they just heard a Sedaris story that will not be in The New Yorker for another few weeks. ‘You know ‘This American Life?,’ one imagined them saying to each other afterward, delighted at their good fortune at being so inside the process of literary production. ‘Well, this is living an American life.'”
