Closing Brunch with Dave Barry
Dave Barry is a humor columnist. For 25 years he was a syndicated columnist whose work appeared in more than 500 newspapers in the United States and abroad. In 1988, he won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. Barry has also written a total of 30 books, and two of his books were used as the basis for the CBS TV sitcom Dave's World, in which Harry Anderson played a much taller version of Dave. Barry lives in Miami, Florida, with his wife, Michelle, a sportswriter. He has a son, Rob, and a daughter, Sophie, neither of whom thinks he's funny. No two speeches of Dave Barry's are exactly the same. He brings his hilarious sense of humor to each presentation and offers up his wacky point of view on relationships, work, kids, technology and life in general.
