Joseph Roccasalvo toasts two masters of the bon mot and the mot juste as he unleashes his own gifted command of the language in his two-part opus, Two for One. Roccasalvo celebrates his admiration for accomplished English satirist Evelyn Waugh in the first part, a two-act monologue starring Waugh himself at his confident best. Meanwhile, the second section introduces prominent Gospel stories in limerick form, countering the "breathless reporting" of the Bible by putting a twinke in each verse's eye. He also toasts the master of the one-liner and timely quip, Jesus Christ, in this two-in-one literary show.
