Company Artist Todd Waite reprises his role as “Crumpet the Elf” in the outlandish, and true, chronicles of David Sedaris’ experience as a worker in Macy’s SantaLand display. This compact, one-character comedy is a hilarious cult classic, featuring comic encounters during the height of the holiday crunch. NPR humorist and best-selling author of Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humorists.
