Additional Info

In this outrageous and irreverent monologue, Diogenes the Dog (who is either the ancient Cynic philosopher, a deranged modern street person, or some bizarre combination of the two) rails against every form of hypocrisy and self righteousness. He does his best to offend everyone while conducting his own manic and demented investigation into the nature of man. It is a perfect showcase for a wild and slightly insane character actor.
