Inhaltsangabe

Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller, one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet, with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes the raw heart. The New York Times calls him "the master storyteller" and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris.

In these seven monologues, recorded before live audiences at New York's Performance Space 122, Daisey tells true stories from his life that range from the terrible beauty of his rural Maine hometown, to shipping weapons to the Middle East, to the unintentionally hilarious dangers of defending free speech.

In Yes, There Will Be Dancing, we're talking about dancing girls and the girls that just won't dance, and what makes one profoundly different from the other. Freedom is also on the table; freedom of speech, freedom of action, and the hot water Mike gets into when he finds out what you can and can't say at a micro-Ivy college. Finally, Pentecostal snake charming and the mysterious world of the tent revival come head-to-head with a Baptist girlfriend who won't dance but will read Cosmo.

Listen to all seven of Mike Daisey's All Stories Are Fiction.

Kritikerstimmen

"Comic delivery so sharp it draws blood." ( San Jose Mercury News)
"Irresistible storytelling...elevating and hilarious." ( San Francisco Weekly)
"Daisey is a brainy, manic hoot, a blond, owl-shaped cross between cultural critic Noam Chomsky and rambunctious actor-rocker Jack Black." ( The Seattle Times)
"Relentlessly interesting...brilliantly spun narrative...Daisey has the kind of timing and dramatic instinct that would make the most mundane story interesting." ( The New York Times)
