What the Fuck Just Happened? showcases Daisey as a master of the form: it's incisive, frequently hilarious, and packed with vivid detail in its storytelling. And even though livestream viewers couldn't see the in-person audience members during the performance, their laughter really made an almost surprising difference in the experience. If you are a New Yorker and have friends or relatives from out of town who want to know or whom you want to know what it has been like to live in the city over the last year, get them tickets to the next livestream on May 7th—because it's still too soon to fly in for a show.
