Swimming to Cambodia


This monologue performance by the late Spauding Gray can be considered a documentary because threaded through funny satire is a lecture on the geography of Cambodia and a journalistic report of the civil unrest, revolution, and incursion by the US that occupied that country. It’s a comedic history documentary. It’s also about him. You’ll learn a lot, while laughing.
