Mike Daisey Monologues

Mike Daisey

Famed monologist Daisey rolls into Philadelphia to present two pointed works that look at where we are a year after the presidential election that gave us Donald Trump. In This Is Not Normal, he discusses the anxiety many feel about some of the policies and actions coming out of the White House and how that fear feeds into the creation of fascism. The End of Journalism zeroes in on the state of our news media and how befuddling it can be to live in a world where news alerts come across our phones more often than texts and we have to decipher “real” and “fake” headlines.
