Dale Radio Season 8: Live at SF Sketchfest


Dale clears a hole in the fog just large enough for him to slip into another sold-out SF Sketchfest show in San Francisco. With the help of fellow night-owl DJ Hootsy, Dale welcomes an eclectic mix of guests for the first-ever Deep Night with Dale Seever performance. After a video introduction and short makeup tutorial with local drag artist Creme Fatale, Dale delves into the dark corners of the imagination with guests Andy Wright, George Chen, and Ariel Waldman. The four get into radionics, hermits, raves, weird energies, space travel, and comedy in this wide-ranging conversation. Dale’s always happy to be back in SF and thanks everyone who made it out. Bonus character portrait this week from NY-based comedian and storyteller, Val Roder!

Next Deep Night with Dale is February 16th in Los Angeles at the world famous Hammer Museum at UCLA. Conveniently located on the corner of Wilshire and Westwood, this hotspot is going to burn bright as Dale brings a brand new show to LA with guests Kate Berlant, Cyrus Ghahremani, Megan Rosenbloom, DJ Nina Tarr, and more. There will be a bar and parking below the museum. The event is free – so what are you waiting for – start driving over now! See you soon, LA!!


Pre-Show Warm Up: Get to Know Dale’s Sketchfest Guests


FOLKS! In a few short days, Dale boards a flying machine bound for San Francisco to take part in the world’s greatest comedy festival, SF SKETCHFEST! He could not be more excited to bring you DEEP NIGHT WITH DALE SEEVER – an all-new hour of entertainment with fantastic guests, video clips, and music from the singular talents of DJ Hootsy (aka Jon Wolanske). It’s a double bill with Killing My Lobster, so make an entire evening of it, Tuesday, January 19th at 8pm at the Eureka Theater for just $20. Get tickets here.

So you know what you’re in for – why not get to know my amazing guests for the evening, each making their DEEP NIGHT WITH DALE debuts. First up, Ariel Waldman! Ariel is the founder of, a directory of ways to participate in space exploration, and the global director of Science Hack Day, a 20-countries-and-growing grassroots endeavor to make things with science. She is the author of What’s It Like in Space?: Stories from Astronauts Who’ve Been There (Chronicle Books, 2016). Ariel is also the co-author of a congressionally-requested National Academy of Sciences study on the future of human spaceflight. She sits on the council for NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC), a program that nurtures radical, sci-fi-esque ideas that could transform future space missions. In 2013, Ariel received an honor from the White House for being a Champion of Change in citizen science. THE WHITE HOUSE!!!

Next, taking us back on a journey through the indy music scene of the late 90s and early aughts, it’s comedy and music’s own, George Chen. George Chen was a musician, writer, and event organizer before finding a place in standup comedy. The past few years have seen him establishing the beloved weekly showcase Cynic Cave at Lost Weekend Video in San Francisco. The anachronistic video store is also home to the monthly multimedia comedy show Talkies. George – let’s get into it!

And our dear friend, Andy Wright. Andy Wright is a freelance writer and editor based in San Francisco. Her work on such diverse topics as radionics, dinosaur hoarding, modern hermits, goat men and wild terriers has appeared in Modern Farmer, The Bay Citizen, The New York Times, Atlas Obscura, Popular Mechanics, and SF Weekly. Dale reads all those things!!

Here’s some video clips that go deeper:

Dale Radio Season 8: Adam Wade


Dale hangs his gold-toe stockings with care for this wonderful holiday conversation with comedian and storyteller, Adam Wade. Dale and Adam have a lot in common and this episode finds them sitting down and swapping tales of performing in basements; resembling cast members of Ghostbusters; creatively redesigning Port Authority; and putting in the work to make it in showbiz. Adam recently released a terrific storytelling album, The Human Comedy, and Dale asks for a deep dive into the mechanics of putting the album together. Adam not only discusses his process, but shares some early influences that encouraged him to move away from standup and into the world of telling honest stories drawn from real life. In addition, Dale offers a tour of his Christmas decorations and there’s a new character portrait from Los Angeles-based comedian, Claire Downs.

Adam Wade’s album, The Human Comedy is available on or on itunes. Dale can’t recommend this thing highly enough – makes a perfect companion for long rides to see family (or get away from them). Adam performs regularly at The Moth and teaches an extraordinary class at NYC’s Magnet Theater. See him live and know that decent guys still exist out there! Claire Downs can be seen in the online series, These People, available at

Dale Radio Season 8: Bowen Yang


Dale experiments with a potent mixture of science and laughter in a conversation with New York comedian Bowen Yang. Bowen and Dale talk about fantasy ostrich purchases, wealthy older women, getting into character, and the welcome shift toward greater diversity in the entertainment biz. Dale also breaks out a classic Sex and the City impression that he usually reserves for the clubs. With a bonus audio character portrait from Dale’s old high school chum, Justin Jude Carroll.

Dale Radio Season 8: Stuffed Bird


Dale stuffs his bird with special audio memories from episodes past. In the midst of celebrating a very Gowanus Thanksgiving, Dale pauses to reflect on conversations with dating expert Rachel Russo; comedy superstar and Metro-North fan, Jacqueline Novak; and with himself as he recounts a very dangerous sounding Seever Harvest Festival. This episode also features a slightly abridged version of the classic holiday moments captured during Dale’s Black Friday Special. Dale and two ladies from his family drive through many parking lot malls in the wee hours in search of bargains and a comfortable place to sleep away from the pungent Hickory Farms display. With a character audio portrait by Baby Pepsee, making her Dale Radio debut!

Happy Holiday weekend, everybody! Hope you have a wonderful time eating and then passing out on a couch or a nice bathroom floor somewhere. If you enjoy this program, rate and review us on itunes and subscribe to Dale’s webseries Opening Bags, on YouTube.
