In 2010, David Mogolov began a series of three comedic monologues that left audiences questioning their life decisions small and large, from their flossing habits to their anger at Ponzi schemers. A hilarious, deep dive into the limits of human rationality, Mogolov's comedy also presents history's most thorough analysis of the smell of a Subway sandwich.
In This Could Have Gone Worse, the trilogy of shows is annotated and expanded with commentary on how they were written and produced, with an honest account of what failed and what succeeded, and why. The notes and new chapters look at it from both the perspective of Mogolov and his director, Steve Kleinedler.
I'm part way through this excellent book by solo performer and bon vivant David Mogolov and I'm going to go ahead and recommend it to all. Especially awesome if you are into performance or comedy (or both). Wonderful mix of smart and funny.
