Mike Daisey Q&A - Time Out New York:

If Mike Daisey is indeed the preeminent monologuist of his generation, as the growing consensus about him would have it, it is partly because of his work’s sheer breadth. Seated at a desk with just notes and water for props, Daisey takes audiences on wide-ranging journeys to the four corners of the mind, often using his own life as a test case for thought experiments. His latest piece, The Last Cargo Cult, finds Daisey jetting off to the South Pacific and delving into our own hearts of financial darkness.
