Mike Daisey
THIS IS NOT NORMAL

In this direct follow-up to his prescient and critical smash THE TRUMP CARD, Daisey addresses the precariousness of our current moment by examining the rise of autocracy and right-wing nationalism across the globe. From Putin’s Russia to Burlusconi’s Italy, from Le Pen in France to Trumpism here at home, Daisey crafts a portrait of the global and cultural forces that have helped lead America into the hands of a demagogue—and explains the push toward normalization from the left and right that always accompanies the rise of strongmen. Part instruction guide, part historical warning, and part dark comedy, Daisey addresses the fever gripping all of us, and how quickly that fever can become fascism.

"A charismatic performer, his shows have the insightful hostility of the best comedy." -The New Yorker
