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 9: Farah Brook

Dale gazes into the swirling mists of his crystal ball, but not even that most reliable method of seeing into the future could predict the enjoyment Dale finds in this conversation with comedian, Farah Brook. Psychic Hotline $1/Min is Farah’s new podcast and it features Farah and her guests phoning in to psychic call centers around the country, seeking genuine responses to whatever is troubling them. Ultimately Farah ends up discovering a great deal about the person on the other end of the line, gaining insight into the life choices that lead to one pursuing their gifts as a medium, and what it’s like to field calls all day from people in need. Dale discusses his own misguided call to a psychic hotline back when he was in college and what a financial trap he found himself in. Dale and Farah also talk about ghosts, strange happenings, broken engagements, and how podcasting might also lend comfort to those in distress.

Deep Night Season 9: Joel Kim Booster

Dale submerges his crystals in a cleansing bath and steals a clarifying moment with writer and comedian Joel Kim Booster. Dale welcomes Joel to the Deep Night studios for a talk about their unique experiences at the recent edition of SF Sketchfest and how politics is straining our social media selves. Joel also shares some insights into his comedy career, including thoughts on festivals that matter, how to maximize after-party small talk, and what he learned as a writer for a couple of popular television programs. Dale loves hearing the behind-the-scenes tale of Joel’s appearance on Conan and discovers that he and Joel both think a lot about comedy clothing choices. Two certified road warriors, Joel and Dale also bond over time spent in creaky churches, empty auditoriums, and hotel rooms with paper-thin walls. All this and more about Dale’s life at home, in a fine comedy-centric episode.

Follow Joel Kim Booster on Twitter https://twitter.com/ihatejoelkim and catch him at Videology in Brooklyn on February 12 for F#ck That Movie with Anna Drezen.

Deep Night Season 9: Nina Tarr

Dale hopes to one day release this conversation on crystal-clear vinyl, to make it as highly-sought after as LA-based comedian and DJ, Nina Tarr. Nina was in New York City recently doing some music and comedy sets around town, so Dale asked if she’d stop by the Deep Night studios for a talk about her career and her trajectory. Born in Orange County, Nina started collecting vinyl records early in life, seeking them out at thrift stores and local record shops. With punk as her gateway music, she quickly built an impressive collection of vintage and rare recordings, then started sharing them at parties and Southern California clubs winning over enthusiastic, if inebriated audiences. During this discussion with Dale, Nina talks about the ways in which her affinity for playing music intersects with her desire to create a unique comedic voice. The two also cover adventures in moving vehicles shaped like body parts; killing it with the elementary school set; and making videos at a breakneck speed for the folks at Buzzfeed. An inspiring conversation that can only take place…in the DEEP NIGHT.

For more on Nina and to find out where she’s spinning discs or slinging jokes, visit her website www.ninatarr.com. San Francisco – Dale’s headed your way for the big show on January 21st at 4:30pm. Be sure and reserve some free tickets and join Dale as he brings a fantastic all new show to the City by the Bay. More info on SFSketchfest.com.
