Mike Daisey - The Agony and the Ecstacy of Steve Jobs at TBA
I wasn't able to sneak a picture during the performance, so that's actually a screen grab from this video of a different performance of the same show.
This is his two-hour monologue about his love of Apple products, the company's history, and the horrible conditions of the workers in China who make the products. I don't know if he's touring doing this, but if you hear about him coming to your town, you should see him. He's a captivating story teller and the show goes from being hilarious to heartbreaking and back again. It's like stand-up except every 20 minutes or so the audience goes from laughing to complete silence as they suddenly feel very guilty for owning computers.
