Live for Your Listening Pleasure is a hilarious series of short stories written and read by David Sedaris in front of many different live audiences. While one story is a humorous fable of a cat and a baboon in a grooming saloon, the other stories are autobiographical tales or observations on life. I found them all very funny and quite enjoyable. I listened to it on a business trip to Milwaukee earlier this week and it had me laughing out loud during several points.
This audiobook is short, only one CD that is approximately 75 minutes long. Sedaris does a great performance and reading with all of the right pauses for maximum laughter and enjoyment. There are some adult themes to some of the stories so it is not appropriate for young children.
The only section I found not funny was a joke about breast milk. I thought it was just gross and not funny. Otherwise everything else was great. It makes up the uneven Sedaris Christmas book I read earlier!
Overall, if you are looking for a good laugh and great observations on life, I highly recommend this audiobook.
