Deep Night Season 10: Live from SF Sketchfest with Michelle Buteau, Becky Braunstein, and Astral Projection Radio

Dale sounds his personal fog horns, and sends out a mighty call throughout the hills and valleys of San Francisco to alert its residents of his arrival, for a fifth appearance at SF Sketchfest. Flying out via mystic portal by way of Delta’s Economy Plus, Dale is joined on the Piano Fight stage by comedian and actor Michelle Buteau; comedian Becky Braunstein, and Shewolfe & Beatrix, the hosts of the popular occult internet broadcast, Astral Projection Radio Hour. Dale enlightens the audience as to the true source of a crystal’s power, while showing off a succulent he bought in Japantown and a tiny owl sculpture purchased from a giftshop carved into an ancient redwood. Dale and his guests get into some pretty explicit conversations right from the get-go in an episode that finds Dale also revealing his breakfast ayahuasca routine, visits to Target stores in strange cities, fending off wildlife in Alaska, and what to pack in one’s end-of-life kit. Music provided by Yea-Ming and The Rumours, whose new single Baby Blue, is out now. Thanks to everyone who came out for a packed house and to the always fabulous organizers of SF Sketchfest.

Be sure to tune into Astral Projection Radio over on Bff.fm, where you can listen to the entire past archive of witchy-sounds and thoughts about death rituals. Download and follow Yea-Ming and The Rumours on Bandcamp. Michelle and Becky are probably doing a show right now – so go find em and support your local comedy festivals.

But first – get to know Dale’s Deep Night guests with a few video clips below.

Dulcé Sloan is a phenomenal comedian and has appeared on so many shows including her new gig on The Daily Show. Check out this set from Conan:

Kate Willett is someone Dale’s wanted to talk with for a long time. Now that she’s in NY – it can happen! Here’s Kate talking about her experience at Burning Man, which didn’t quite go as planned.

And Friends Who Folk (Rachel Wenitsky & Ned Riseley) are doing their musical thing and it makes ole Dale a little misty for his time snapping his fingers at smoke-filled coffee houses in the East Village. (That never happened, but don’t tell him that. How old is he?)

Deep Night Season 10: Solstice Special

Dale rolls out the welcome yoga mats and fills an antler mug full of cheer as he invites you to is annual pagan celebration of endless darkness in this special solo episode. Yes, it’s time for a trip to the outermost reaches of the Deep Night for A Very Seever Solstice Special. Dale shares some holiday recipes that are sure to make you forget how your body works; channels himself inside a spider bachelor who may or may not be plotting the end of human existence; and offers a guided meditation through one the bourbon-soaked back alleyways of New Orleans. Alight your altars and don your ceremonial podcast listening robes, this night is DEEP!

Dale wishes you a beautiful time of renewal and a very happy holiday ritual. He and Galinda both are sending paper balloons full of fire up into the heavens in your honor, with the hope that you will have a wonderful New Year and that you will consider rating and reviewing this show on Apple Podcasts. Dale and Co. will be taking a couple of weeks off to recover from his eggnog recipe, but will return in the dawn of the new age with brand new live shows in SF and NY in January. Check the listings and this website for shows at SF Sketchfest and The Slipper Room. Lots of great guests, big laughs, and a male witch playing a theremin. The Deep Night has it all! Thanks for your support!

Deep Night Season 10: Julia Wertz

Dale takes a break from his elaborate solstice preparations for a conversation with cartoonist and graphic novelist, Julia Wertz. Dale invites Julia to talk about her new book, Tenements, Towers, and Trash: An Unconventional Illustrated History of New York City, which is an extraordinary, eclectic, ambitious work full of beautiful drawings of New York as it once was and as it appears in the present day. Like Dale, Julia enjoys a good historical tangent, and the book contains numerous insightful digressions into the personalities and peculiarities that continue to shape modern city life. Having a touch of seasonal sadness this time of year, Dale maybe picks up on maybe too much emptiness in some of Julia’s work, but the two have a fine conversation about spending time alone and growing up among the strange architecture in old buildings. Plus a deep dive into the ancient messages of hot springs, an update on the wildfires, and Dale recounts his first visit to Manhattan.

To purchase Julia’s latest book, Tenements, Towers, and Trash – visit a fine bookstore in your neighborhood before it becomes a New York Sports Club, or order online and watch your mailperson wince as they carry it up the steps. Julia is also selling original pages from the book and they are amazing and beautiful and you should get one. Lots of great gift ideas here in the Deep Night Holiday nook! Visit Julia’s website www.juliawertz.com for more.

Deep Night Season 10: Live with Lola Kirke, Wanjiko Eke, Kiley Lotz, and Sarah Lazarus

Dale brines his bird in magic for this special pre-holiday episode recorded live at the Slipper Room in New York City. Dale starts things off with a welcoming incantation and then gets going with comedian Sarah Lazarus on the subjects of time travel and monuments to dead poultry. Kiley Lotz, who also performs under the name Petal, tells of her journey from coal country to the big city, while also sharing some details about her latest musical release. Comedy’s own Wanjiko Eke talks with Dale about some weird dungeons she’s been to and Dale invites her to pay a visit to one of his favorite places. Finally actor and musician Lola Kirke joins Dale for a talk about oboes, alleyways, Venice, and our favorite holiday parade inflatables. Plus music throughout on the theremin by the singular Cornelius Loy.

A funny recent set from comedian Wanjiko Eke at the Cobra Club.

And there’s literally too much funny stuff to capture from the brilliant Sarah Lazarus, but this tweet feels right to Dale. Click for more from her twitter timeline.

My goodness, want to hear a bit of what you’re in for with a theremin as our house band? Here’s a clip of the amazing Cornelius Loy playing a signature tune! It’s just energy!!

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.
