Spalding Gray

GUESTS: SPALDING GRAY *Writer, actor and performer *Creator of 18 monologues, including the Obie Award winning "Swimming to Cambodia" and his latest work, "Morning, Noon and Night" Actor, writer and performer Spalding Gray has made a career out of reporting on himself. Known for his epic monologues, what's different about his stories, according to Gray, is that everything he says is true. Part stand-up comedy, part psychoanalytic free association, Gray's newest work focuses on the latest chapter in his life - domesticity on Long Island. Melinda Penkava talks with performance artist Spalding Gray.
