COURTESY to Jesse Thorn's TSOYA blog for tipping me off to this video of protesters CONFRONTING MIKE DAISEY with H2O the other night in CAMBRIDGE, MA.
WHILE IT IS NOT ALWAYS COMFORTABLE to live in a culture of constant surveillance, it is strangely comfortable to know that the camera points in all directions, and such impromptu acts of cowardice are so quickly drawn squirming into the light.
AND IT IS INSPIRING to me, both as a performer and a human, to see the humor and the grace with which Mike reassures those members of his audience who did not choose to pour water on his notes and regain control of himself and the moment.
UNLESS YOU DO NOT LIKE THE WORD "FUCK," and wish to support Mike Daisey, just go see the show.
THE UNEXPECTED BONUS GIFT IF YOU DO?: Mike is funny and awesome.
That is all.
