     Hailed by The New York Times as “the master storyteller” and “one of the finest solo performers of his generation,” Mike Daisey’s extemporaneous monologues skewer, illuminate, and ultimately celebrate our world with equal parts humor and heart. Monologues like Tongues Will Wag, If You See Something Say Something and How Theater Failed America have become classic staples in Daisey’s repertoire. Performing his critically acclaimed monologue, The Last Cargo Cult, Daisey masterfully tells the story of his journey to a remote South Pacific island whose people worship America and its “cargo.” Set against an examination of the international financial crisis that gripped the globe, this narrative confronts the financial system that dominates our world. Part adventure story and part memoir, Daisey explores each culture to unearth a human truth between the seemingly primitive and achingly modern. “One of the elite performers in the American theater…with an effortlessness that comes from years of spinning tales, he imbues this trip with the punch of the first explosion of an action movie.” NEW YORK TIMES
