Daisey_590x305

November 9 – 11, 2017

Mike Daisey returns to PTC on the one year anniversary of our presidential election with two provocative new monologues performed in repertory. In This is Not Normal, Daisey illuminates the fever gripping all of us, and how quickly that fever becomes fascism. The End of Journalism explores how journalism in America ended, peeling back layers of “real” and “fake” news to find the darkly hilarious truth about the world we’ve made. Daisey is hailed as the pre-eminent monologist in the American theater today.

Public Radio’s Bob Garfield, co-host of On the Media, asks, “Who am I?” A crazy-quilt, hilarious odyssey, Ruggedly Jewish is a search for self: the characters Garfield has chronicled throughout his career; the American self, the suddenly-emerging threatened self, and his own baffled self – a secular Jew.

About Bob Garfield: For the past 17 years, Bob has co-hosted the Peabody Award-winning public radio program on the media, cleverly titled On the Media. He is the creator of the Audible Channels program The Genius Dialogues and was founding co-host of Slate’s Lexicon Valley. Bob has been a columnist or contributing editor for the Washington Post Magazine, MediaPost, The Guardian, Advertising Age, Civilization and the op-ed page of USA Today. He has also written for The New York Times, Playboy, Atlantic, Sports Illustrated, Wired and the Mainichi Shimbun and been employed variously by ABC, CBS, CNBC and the defunct FNN as an on-air analyst. As a lecturer and panelist, he has appeared in 37 countries on six continents. He wrote a shitty episode of a short-lived NBC sitcom, Sweet Surrender, and co-wrote a song recorded by Willie Nelson. (Long story.) Bob is the NYT worst-selling author of five books, including his comic mob thriller Bedfellows, which is somewhat comic and somewhat thrilling. He has a play and a couple of movie scripts in his drawer he’d love for you to read. Bob is the founding director of the annual Media Future Summit, recent visiting lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication and a senior fellow at SEI Center for Advanced Studies in Management at Penn’s Wharton School.
