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!!

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 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!
