DAVID SEDARIS at the Royal Theatre on M​ay 9 7​:30​ PM #yyjevents @rmts_Victoria

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America ’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris is the author of the bestsellers Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, each of which became immediate bestsellers.

David Sedaris’s original radio pieces can often be heard on This American Life, distributed nationally by Public Radio International and produced by WBEZ.

“Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.” – San Francisco Chronicle

Spring into activities at the Royal BC Museum

VICTORIA, BC–There is a lot to celebrate at the Royal BC Museum this month: April Fool’s, National Canadian Film Day, Earth Day, Astronomy Day and the long-awaited, widely anticipated opening of the Terry Fox exhibition.

The Royal BC Museum will try its best to fool you with its annual (and insanely popular) April Fool’s scavenger hunt from March 31 to April 10. Visitors are challenged to roam our galleries and spot anachronistic artifacts, oddball animals and materials that just don’t belong. The pranks are geared for kids and adults alike, and visitors can pick up a game sheet in our lobby before they head upstairs. Participation in the hunt is included with museum admission or membership. Continue reading “Spring into activities at the Royal BC Museum @RoyalBCMuseum #yyjevents”
