Dale archives a beautiful evening spent in the company of photographer, Mindy Tucker. For the past six years, Mindy has documented the comedy scene in New York. In doing so, she’s become an integral part of the community, annually producing the highly anticipated annual publication, Year in Comedy. Dale sat down on Mindy’s couch to discuss her origins in Alabama, the initial rush of picking up a Pentax K-1000, the advantages of accepting an invitation, and the wisdom gleaned from her unique perspective on the comedy community.

To see Mindy’s work – just take a look at most every comedian’s headshots or publicity photos – or you can also check out her website. The Year in Comedy is available here.

The next Dale Radio Live is May 14th at The PIT. Dale’s producer James Bewley will be appearing on Thursday, April 24th as part of Tom Shillue’s Funny Story at the Brooklyn Brewery. Storytelling, laughter and beers. What more could you want? All for a reasonable $10 price. Come on out and see this talented youngster tell a tale from his past. Tickets here.
