"Mooney mines the words of great historical figures from Socrates to Winston Churchill. In other words, his source material is strong. In a shrewd move, Mooney mixes in surprise offerings with the speeches we've all heard before always brought back on track by the power of those great words." - Matthew Palm, Orlando Sentinel
Ten speeches, including Socrates, Frederick Douglass, Abe Lincoln and more! Searing, powerful dances of rhetoric and inspiration, leaping across the chasm of history! Mooney explains, "I love being able to bring moments of historical consequence, where great deeds hang in the balance, to immediate and tangible life."
The Greatest Speech of All Time leads the audience through the words that shaped history, as they were being spoken. Tim Mooney's special proclivity for recognizing and interpreting the shades of irony and hyperbole which informed the oratory, and his ability to untangle the "spaghetti" of centuries-old syntax, recreates these events, enabling the audience to experience the moment when everything hangs in the balance!
