Inhaltsangabe

Monologist Mike Daisey presents a dazzling new work: four "bio-logues" about megalomania and desire constructed from the interleaved life stories of Bertolt Brecht, P.T. Barnum, Nikola Tesla, and L. Ron Hubbard. Over four nights Daisey explores the nature of genius and wrestles with the pride, insanity, and chauvinism that bind these men together, and reveals how the heights and depths of their gifts have much to teach us about ourselves. Each evening is unique and can be listened to independently, but all four together form an epic oral accounting of triumph and folly told with Daisey's dark and hilarious intensity.

P.T. Barnum was a gifted entrepreneur, showman, raconteur, hoaxster, and freakshow and circus promoter who changed the face of 19th century America through blatant, shameless lying.

Kritikerstimmen

"Daisey is a master showman, combining the storytelling acumen of David Sedaris and Lewis Black's outraged humor." ( Daily Californian)
"Mike Daisey's monologues brim with subtle messages that never hammer you over the head...by association, he adds himself to the titular category." ( Time Out New York)
