Jonathan Daylight is, in his own mind, a skilled motivational speaker and productivity coach. In reality, he is a woefully untalented and unloved person trying to navigate a world that values highly skilled people doing constant, endless work.
This one-man show combines comedy, theater, and juggling to create something that goes beyond traditional motivational speaking. Jonathan Daylight Live! inadvertently pokes fun at at “hustle culture” and the motivation industry’s absurdity and inability to create long lasting change in people. As he gives advice and shares stories, Jonathan realizes that true growth comes from acknowledging our intrinsic value and prioritizing our health and wellbeing.
