Dale loosens things way up, just in time for spring in a spectacular live show recorded at The PIT in NYC. Dale welcomes a sensational lineup of guests, including Bridget Everett (Inside Amy Schumer), Nore Davis (Comedy Central), Joe Randazzo (The Onion), and Naomi Ekperigin (Broad City) for a wide-ranging conversation about day old bagels, how to succeed in comedy, the allure of Yonkers, performing at Carnegie Hall, and clothing with a mind of its own. Music by Andrew Bancroft and Ashley Perez Flanagan of the hot new band Moondrunk.
Whatta time! Be sure and follow all of Dale’s guests online; seek out Joe’s new book, Funny On Purpose; and make plans to catch Dale & Leslie Goshko, along with a cast of brilliant performers, as they take on the world of Lawrence Welk in the new variety show, Wunnerful Wunnerful! Don’t miss the debut performance at Joe’s Pub in NY, Saturday, April 11th at 9:30pm. Get tickets now and ensure a good seat.
Dale goes in the backdoor (and up five flights of wooden stairs) to reach the comedy boudoir of musical duo, Reformed Whores. Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame welcome Dale to spread out on their spacious couch next to a sweet and slumbering pussy. The trio have a steamy exchange that covers slippery bathroom floors, wild late night calls, intimate meetings in Los Angeles, and the delicate exploration of one’s instrument. Listeners may need a shower and a smoke after this one!
Reformed Whores join Dale on April 11th at Joe’s Pub in NYC for Wunnerful Wunnerful!, a show that pays tribute to the magic and influence of the Lawrence Welk program. Tickets are $20 and some great seats are still available via the Joe’s Pub site, or on daleradio.com. The ladies will be playing live as part of the Bad Assery Women & Comedy Conference at the Bell House – with many friends of this program – in Brooklyn, so check listings for that. The Whores’ album Ladies Don’t Spit is available on itunes, or wherever you find great music and their second album will be out later this year.
While you’re busy scraping Leprechauns off your shoes and finishing off your cabbages, why not get to know Dale’s guests for the next live show happening Tuesday, March 24th at 8pm at The PIT?! Dale’s living his dreams this spring, his dreams mostly being about rabid squirrels and talking to good looking folks underground. Luckily this show has a very low-rodent quotient and a very high amazing people quotient, with superstars Bridget Everett (Rock Bottom, Inside Amy Schumer), Joe Randazzo (The Onion, Funny on Purpose), Nore Davis (Comedy Central, Just for Laughs), and Naomi Ekperigin (Broad City, Totally Biased). We’ll also have music from our old pal Andrew Bancroft, with vocals from the divine Ashley Pérez Flanagan.
So many talented people coming together in a basement – it makes him swoon with excitement. Or maybe that’s just Spring Fever, or possibly too much Irish whiskey. Either way – the point is he’d love to see you at this show. It’s $10. And tickets are available via this link or at the door. Get em!
Now – here’s some video clips of our guests in action.
Here’s the phenomenal Bridget Everett with Broadway legend Patti Lupone destroying at a Joe’s Pub benefit performance a couple of years ago. Bridget has plenty of fine videos online – but this one really highlights her professionalism, her generosity, and her warm spirit onstage. This is what a star looks like:
Here’s laser accurate stand-up comedian Nore Davis as he expertly handles a heckler at a club in NY. That’s how you do it, folks.
Naomi Ekperigin has written for Broad City, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, but she’s a busy stand up comedian as well. Here’s a set about love. Cause that’s why Dale does it.
Joe Randazzo gets what it was like to grow up in the 1990s! Check out this hot jam.
And a beautiful rendition of Gangsta’s Paradise, the old chestnut that we all love – from Andrew Bancroft and Ashley Pérez Flanagan. Sweet sweet music that reminds of the Jon Lovitz vehicle, High School High.
Dale thaws out as spring approaches. A return to the midnight recording sessions of earlier seasons, this episode finds Dale alone in the dark, sharing his thoughts on rising sea levels, classic TV space adventures, art therapy, birds of prey, and two big upcoming live shows. He also dives into the e-dale inbox to respond to some items from eager listeners.
Next Dale Radio Live is Tues, March 24th 8pm at The PIT Underground. Dale’s guests will be Bridget Everett, Joe Randazzo, Nore Davis, and Naomi Ekperigin. Get tickets in advance or at the door, just $10. We’ll have a good time in a basement. As always.

Dale wades through a hundred puddles of slush and takes the longest train ride of his life to arrive at the spacious uptown writer’s retreat of humorist, playwright, and performer Isaac Oliver. Over some freshly brewed coffee, Dale and Isaac discuss romantic telegrams, haunted residencies, glittery myspace posts, and the unending quest for intimacy. Isaac’s book, Intimacy Idiot comes out in June, and it’s surely something you’ll want to be intimate with all summer.
In addition to submitting your pre-orders for Isaac’s book, why not go ahead and secure some tickets for the next Dale Radio Live on Tuesday, March 24th at 8pm at NYC’s The PIT. Dale’s guests will be Bridget Everett, Joe Randazzo, Nore Davis, and Naomi Ekperigin. That is some top flight comedy, folks. Plus – Dale might wear a new tie! Lots to look forward to. Dear snow, please stop!
Dale chips away at the ice hardening around his hopes and dreams in a fantastic live show with comedians Matteo Lane, Kaytlin Bailey, and Julio Torres along with singer/songwriter Cariad Harmon. The five discuss the beautiful possibilities of New York while also covering topics like space travel, hypersleep, dance halls, British footwear, lobbying, sex stuff, Julie Andrews, and working for Panera Bread. With music by Steve O’Reilly.
Be sure and find out more about all of Dale’s guests by visiting their pages or twitter accounts or tracking their online personas somehow. Cariad’s album, Cariad Harmon is available now wherever you get your music. Kaytlin has an unnamed solo show coming up soon so check that out. Matteo is everywhere. Julio is one to watch.
Gang, Dale is beyond excited about this poster design we have for the rest of the season. The illustration was done by James Boyle, a talented fella out of Philadelphia. We thought we’d share the evolution of the thing so you could see how it came to be. James nailed Dale’s likeness pretty much from the beginning. We only suggested that he look a little less like Commissioner Gordon – and James delivered.
The first show using this design is tonight – featuring an amazing lineup of guests with comedians Matteo Lane, Kaytlin Bailey, Julio Torres, along with musician Cariad Harmon. Steve O is going be providing some sweet tunage as well. We hope you’ll join us at 8pm at The PIT Underground space Tuesday, February 24th. Tickets are still available at just $10 a pop – get em here: http://thepit-nyc.com/event/dale-radio-live-5/ or at the door!
Here’s the evolution of the design. Some clues to Dale’s life float in that rising water. With at least one Easter Egg for longtime fans! Don’t worry – he may be going under, but it’s not going to get him down!
