Deep Night Season 10: Sudi Green

Dale discovers that a tiny nearby state holds some big scary secrets. He shudders with every revelation in this conversation with comedian and SNL writer, Sudi Green. Sudi talks about growing up in Newark, Delaware where tax-free shopping and murderous intentions go hand-in-hand. Sudi shares some stories about taunting teens on the dance floor, being drawn to characters that are a lot like her, and what not to wear for Halloween. There’s a lot of great comedy wisdom in this episode as Sudi talks about observing behaviors that make it into sketches and what happens when a performer breaks on stage. The two also spill the beans on the sexiest animals of all time and Dale invites you to try some of his home-made essential oils.

Sudi Green is a comedian living in Brooklyn and writer for Saturday Night Live. You can see her as the co-host of her sketch/variety show Theme Party. In 2015, Sudi was selected as a Just For Laughs New Face for characters. She is a proud member of sketch groups Pop Roulette, O.S.F.U.G. and alumni of HammerkatzNYU.

Deep Night Season 10: Tim Barnes

Dale sort of wishes he was hosting a breezy morning talk show in this week’s episode of Deep Night, featuring comedian Tim Barnes. A great deal of this program is about physics, which is surprising because Dale is awful at physics and it’s always disappointing to him how much of life is guided by the old every action has a reaction thing. Is that physics? Dale still doesn’t know, but he does enjoy a lot of the actions of his guest, Tim Barnes who is getting a lot of great reactions from his audiences and podcast listeners. Tim shares some stories from the mean streets of Santa Barbara, identifies the best place to get pizza not-from-Chicago in Chicago, and explores the secret rhythms of terrific conversations. Plus Dale makes a phone call and offers some terrible coping strategies for loneliness. This week’s hashtag is gourdwife.

Be sure and visit Tim’s website https://timbarnescomedy.com/ for upcoming shows and potential new podcast releases or events.

The next Deep Night with Dale Live is happening on Weds, November 15 at 8pm at The Slipper Room in NYC. Dale’s guests will be Lola Kirke, Petal, Wanjiko Eke, and Sarah Lazarus. Music on the theremin from Cornelius Loy. Tickets are available now for $10: http://www.slipperroom.com/event/1519644-guest-event-deep-night-dale-new-york/. SEE YOU IN THE DEEP NIGHT.

Deep Night Season 10: Greta Titelman

Dale embraces chance encounters and honors the strange forces behind the Deep Night and NYC street festivals, two powerful cosmic entities responsible for bringing him into contact with comedian Greta Titelman. The host of Personal Space on Bravo and a co-host of the Lady Lovin podcast, Greta has a great deal to offer in terms of relationships and lady issues, but also some insightful thoughts on grief, acceptance, and shutting down regrets. The two agree on a strict no hot sheets policy when it comes to lovers and reminisce about the second-hand joys of art school, weird ways to enjoy parts of EPCOT, and moments when rage is the exact right emotion. Dale dishes on some awkward thoughts about his recent college reunion and has a transcendent moment with a flying insect.

Greta’s Bat Mitzvah is happening as part of the upcoming edition of the New York Comedy Festival. Tickets and information about that event can be found here: http://nycomedyfestival.com/event/greta-titelmans-bat-mitzvah/. To watch episodes of Personal Space, visit the Bravo site.

Deep Night Season 10: Andrea Silenzi

Dale swipes at the pulsing walls of the Deep Night in hopes of trying to understand what dating is like in the 21st Century. To help him out, Dale invites expert Andrea Silenzi, host of the dating podcast Why Oh Why, to walk him through it. Though it’s been ages since Dale had to electronically select a mate, he finds that some of his old ideas still have merit and others as usual, are worthless. Andrea is in the throes of it all herself, so Dale tries to offer some perspective from his advanced age, but it seems that he might just not know the right words to say. Meanwhile, Andrea and Dale also discuss opening lines, dating types, ideal scenarios, and the role humor plays in the back and forth of a successful romance. Dale also reveals some secrets to dating in the Deep Night, where one can be anything and date anyone.

Why Oh Why is a weekly podcast about relationships from Panoply. In each episode, Andrea Silenzi speaks with friends, experts, and guys in bars about where love and sex meets technology. The show tells the stories about relationships by blurring the lines between memoir, documentary, and fiction. Why Oh Why was named Best New Podcast of 2016 by The New York Times, NPR, Apple Podcasts, and Huffington Post. Prior to her work on that program, Andrea was the founding producer of The Gist with Mike Pesca. In her time there, The Gist was highlighted as a Best New Podcast by iTunes, named a Webby honoree, and was twice featured on the popular public radio show This American Life. You can listen and subscribe to both Why Oh Why and Deep Night on Apple Podcasts.

Deep Night Season 10: Live with Melinda Taub, Kristen Bartlett, Rae Sanni, and Matt Rogers

Dale glides effortlessly through the inter-dimensional gateways once more, to bring you a special live episode direct from the Deep Night. Recorded in front of a mostly awake audience at The Slipper Room in New York City, Dale welcomes the tenth season of the program in style with leading comedians and writers from some of TV and podcasting’s biggest hits.

From the Las Culturistas podcast, actor and comedian Matt Rogers joins Dale, beer in hand, ready to woo Brooke Shields at a later engagement. We find out Matt loves Star Wars but isn’t wild about his Calvin Klein jeans. From The President Show, comedian Rae Sanni talks about writing for that program, and she and Dale try to solve one of life’s greatest mysteries. Writer Kristen Bartlett works for Saturday Night Live, but we mostly talk about other stuff, like the Emmy Awards (which might be a scam), and Who’s Who in American High Schools (which is definitely a scam), and her time working for Garrison Keillor on Prairie Home Companion. And finally comedian Melinda Taub, writer for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee talks about her own Emmy experience and the challenges of keeping up appearances in rented gowns. Plus some talk of rituals, things we bury in backyards, and Dale’s sagging efforts to get people to buy his essential oils. With cosmic musical accompaniment from the one and only Cornelius Loy on the theremin.

Next live show is Weds, November 15th at the Slipper Room. Save the date!

Deep Night Season 10: Jackie Kashian

Dale opens up the portals within and resumes his study of the dark arts for a brand-new, tenth season of Deep Night with Dale. On this first episode, Dale talks with comedian Jackie Kashian, who was in town from Los Angeles to do some shows and spend some time visiting New York. It was a real honor for Dale, as Jackie is a terrific stand-up and the host of her own long-running podcast, The Dork Forest. With fellow comedian Laurie Kilmartin, she is the co-host of the Jackie and Laurie Show podcast, on the Nerdist Network. From the Deep Night, aka the Jackie and Dale Show, the two have a conversation inspired by a close listen of Jackie’s new album, I Am Not The Hero of This Story (available on itunes). While trying to stay on track, the two digress wildly to cover important topics like: tiny lil’ Jack Reacher, Mill Valley therapists, awkward marriage proposals, and sadness in a megachurch. The episode also includes a personalized horoscope for a listener and the Deep Night lucky numbers.

Visit Jackie Kashian’s website www.jackiekashian.com for more on Jackie and her many stints around the country (including some on a boat). Her comedy albums are available through itunes and her podcasts, along with her numerous podcast appearances, can be listened to via Apple Podcasts.

This episode features the new take on the DEEP NIGHT theme by Zach Gabbard and music throughout from the talented roster at Howler Hills Farm. Plus a couple of groovy sound effects we totally paid for. Season 10 podcast icon drawn by Kristen Wroten. Photos of Dale used to promote the podcast and live shows by Sandy Honig. This episode was recorded at Harvestworks in NYC.

Deep Night Season 9: Live with Janine Brito, Joanna Rothkopf, Jamilah King, and Lily Herman

Dale celebrates the end of another season with a special all-politics edition of the program, co-presented with B.L.O.W. (Brooklyn Ladies of Winning the Vote). Recorded live at the Slipper Room in New York City before a packed house, Dale tries to understand what’s going on in Washington, DC and what it means for the rest of us. To help him along, Dale assembles an all-star panel of writers and comedians who follow, report on, and provide context for the current administration and the strange times we live in. Comedian Janine Brito; Managing Editor of Jezebel, Joanna Rothkopf; Senior Staff Writer for Mic.com, Jamilah King; and Teen Vogue’s Lily Herman join Dale for a lively and timely discussion about culture, feminism, resistance, and college pizza. With music throughout by thereminst, Cornelius Loy. The event benefits Brand New Congress, which aims to put progressive, non-party-machine candidates forward for public office. For more on Brand New Congress visit their website https://brandnewcongress.org. Look for the tenth season of Deep Night to begin in September, 2018.

Thanks to all for a great season and to everyone who has tuned in or come out to the live shows to lend your support. Special thanks to B.L.O.W. for making this live season finale, such a memorable and exciting one.
