David Sedaris

While I think listing him as your favorite author is not to your credit and while I think he is somewhere on the spectrum between being the Bennet Cerf or the James Thurber of our generation—talented but never surpassing mere cleverness and doomed to be forgotten by all but people who buy Trivial Pursuit for the factoids—David Sedaris is still a funny man. Even funnier if you imagine his voice when you read his words.

Sorry, Elizabeth. : (
