Yesterday I went to see Mike Daisey perform his new monologue American Utopias. Man, it’s too bad it was his last show in Chicago. I found it totally inspiring and totally hilarious. Among the hilarious moments were: a story about a Disney Character Breakfast he attended with his family, an embarrassing moment on Bloomberg radio where he revealed a truth about the billionmayor of New York, and a contemplation on all the naked men who populate Burning Man.

My favorite moments, though, were some of the not-so-funnies. He talked about the moment when he walked around the corner and see Cinderlla’s castle in the Magic Kingdom, and how that moment was so meaningful that it’s hard to describe it in words.
