Spalding Gray's monologues are comic genius! This one is my favorite. Having had similar experiences to the ones he describes, I can relate to this. The intonations he gives his characters while delivering this monologue are hilarious! His timing is wonderful. Although he can sometimes seem to be a bit manic, that is part of his charm.
