Anthony Bourdain returns to Seattle this fall as part of his new live show, called "The Hunger." It's the follow-up to his wildly successful "Close to the Bone" tour from last year, which also stopped in the Emerald City.

Bourdain's second stand-up stage act hits Paramount Theatre on Sunday, November 13. The globe-trotting chef, author, and TV show host promises "an unyielding, brutally honest monologue reflecting on diverse culture, street cuisine and his travels to lesser-known locations around the world." There should also be an open Q&A session following each show, giving audience members the chance to engage directly with the brash celebrity.

The tour kicks off October 25 in New York City, coinciding with the launch of his next book, Appetites: A Cookbook. Eater has more details and a first look at the cover, designed by illustrator and Hunter S. Thompson-collaborator Ralph Steadman. Below, see the full schedule for "The Hunger" and details on ticket sales.
