Q&A with Mike Daisey on Apple, China & the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs

Apr 26, 2011

 Mike Daisey is a performer who does full-length extemporaneous monologues on a variety of issues. His latest, “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” examines Apple as well as Americans' love for technology. The show just completed a run at Woolly Mammoth Theater in Washington, DC. Previous programs have delved into such issues as life in New York, the history of Homeland Security, international financial problems, and the American lack of support of the theater. In this interview, Mike Daisey talked about how he came to do his monologues and his ideas behind them. Clips of previous performances were shown, including one in 2007 where a group walked out of his performance in protest of the language he used. He is the author of one book, 21 Dog Years, published in 2002.
