I do get asked "where can I find training courses for story telling/monologues?"
I know Mike Daisey sometimes does this (see his site), but here is one coming up in NYC
and one ongoing in California. Both people are strongly influenced by Spalding.

an uncanny resemblance to the monologuist Spalding Gray." (scroll down to Figure 3)...

May 28th, 2004 - Larry King has just released a book called Remember Me When I'm Gone (Doubleday 2004). It is a collection of epithaphs by famous people. Spalding had written the following: (quote will be removed by request of publisher): "Spalding Gray was born in 1941 in Providence, Road Island. He was a loving and devoted father to his two sons, Forrest and Theo, and his stepdaughter, Marissa Maier. He loved and cherished his wife, Kathleen Russo. Most of all, Spalding will be remembered for his autobiographical monologues at which he would sit on stage at a table with a glass of water and talk for more than an hour and a half, telling true stories from his life. He was like a talking everyman because his life, although a little eccentric, was not that different from all of ours. Only he would be able to capture in such vivid detail, and highlight it with such humor, that it caused audiences both to laugh and relate. Spalding Gray was an American original and the "Talking Man" will be dearly missed.
January 17, 04 : I first found Spalding when he was on Letterman (in 84) flogging his book Sex and Death to Age 14. I immediately went out and bought it and have been buying everything since. So perhaps I wasn't the first Spud head, but I'd like to think I was one of the first. He spoke my language, and my heart and mind both understood.
As I write this, Spalding is still missing and even in New York he is considered missing after being gone the required 7 days. There has been a flurry of misinformation that must have been upsetting to Kathie and his/her family. The best write up I have read so far is: http://news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/story.jsp?story=482019 I will not refer to Spalding in the past and I never will. He is always present in what I write myself and he is always in my heart...When I had just finished this web page and just phoned Seattle for a front row seat for his performance in March, my spouse got me out of bed and said 'CNN just reported that Spalding is missing'...And yet, now I've decided to put this up on the web because as I said, Spalding Lives (in same voice as Che Lives)...
Spud... please call home...
