Great Men of Genius, Part 3: Nikola Tesla by Mike Daisey

Great Men of Genius, Part 3: Nikola Tesla

by Mike Daisey

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
1 Hr. 27 Min.


Monologist Mike Daisey presents a dazzling new work: four "bio-logues" about megalomania and desire constructed from the interleaved life stories of Bertolt Brecht, P.T. Barnum, Nikola Tesla, and L. Ron Hubbard. Over four nights Daisey explores the nature of genius and wrestles with the pride, insanity, and chauvinism that bind these men together, and reveals how the heights and depths of their gifts have much to teach us about ourselves. Each evening is unique and can be listened to independently, but all four together form an epic oral accounting of triumph and folly told with Daisey's dark and hilarious intensity.

Nikola Tesla was a mad genius, brilliant scientist, and visionary who sparred with Thomas Edison and died insane and penniless writing love sonnets to pigeons - after bringing the world electricity as we know it.
