Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

David Sedaris played the Paramount on November 7, and the essayist/commentator was a big hit, discussing everything from the house he wanted to buy in England to where white men shit to, well, shitting in your hand, as Kelsey Whipple noted in her "10 best David Sedaris quotes" post.
