Deep Night Season 10: Past, Present, and Future Dales

Dale flies solo in this special three-part episode, but he’s never truly alone in the Deep Night. For one, he has you, the eager listener. Two, he’s always conjuring an future for himself with a loving family farming the high seas. And while he tries to stay in the present, he can’t help ruminating on his past lives, and the past lives of those past lives. In other words, it’s a full house in the mind of Dale Seever! This episode features some probably factual things about where we’re headed as a planet, plus an exclusive track from one of Dale’s hot new guided meditation programs. He’s in the woods, and so are you and it’s a little chilly and ARE YOU RELAXED YET?! It’s a fine time this week, with plenty of typical Seever-digressions, and way too many sound effects.

And HELLO! Live in the moment. It’s time for Deep Night with Dale Live! at the Slipper Room on Weds, November 15th 8pm/Doors at 7pm. Tickets are still just $10 in advance/$12 at the door. Get em by visiting:

Deep Night Season 9: Superfund Shaman

Dale celebrates his succulents and loosens his meditation cloak as it turns out he’s at the white hot center of the new shaman trend. With the end of another podcast season drawing near, Dale reflects on some highlights of the last year including his well-received cameo on HBO’s Crashing, his experiences chasing voice over gigs, and being lonely backstage with Dick Cavett. Because he’s been staying up too late and paid a lot of extra money for Showtime, Dale also shares some thoughts on the return of Twin Peaks and tries for the umpteenth time to get that story straight. He talks about a successful turtleneck swap, meeting new people, the influence of Phil Hartman, and his ever more powerful bond with his wife and partner, Galinda.

A special thanks to everyone who came out to experience the Deep Night in person in San Francisco and New York. Thanks also to Dale’s extraordinary guests (so far!). The following have all spent time sharing their regrets and revelations with Dale: Sovereign Syre, Tara Clancy, Rachel Chavkin, Dan Kennedy, Rosebud Baker, James Habacker, Lindsay Goldwert, Colin Dickey, Scout Durwood, Marie Faustin, Michael Kupperman, Kyle Ayers, Shalewa Sharpe, Glockabelle, Mo Fry Pasic, Joe Rumrill, Catie Lazarus, Nina Tarr, Jenny Zigrino, Phil Ross, Allie Goertz, Joel Kim Booster, Greg Hildreth, Lisa Rosman, Michelle Buteau, Daniel Kibblesmith, Vinny DePonto, Sandy Honig, Jes Tom, Hadiyah Robinson, Maggie Serota, Alex English, Shannon Taggart, Melissa Febos, Farah Brook, Michael Chernus, Dave Mizzoni, Maeve Higgins, Jason Zinoman, Ike Ufomadu, and Amy Zimmer.

Deep Night Season 9: Live with Michael Kupperman, Kyle Ayers, Shalewa Sharpe and Glockabelle

Dale counts his many, many blessings during this generously-portioned, live Thanksgiving Eve edition of the program. From the world famous Slipper Room in NYC, Dale offers some thoughts on the bones in our bodies and shares the best way to prepare river meats for your next Gowanus-inspired holiday meal. As the Deep Night rolls on, Dale welcomes comedian Shalewa Sharpe for some tales about cookie trays and misguided balloon choices; comedian Kyle Ayers gets a surprise tarot reading and makes Dale uncomfortable with some sex talk; and then graphic novelist and great comedy mind Michael Kupperman talks terrible heroes, kid wizards, and stolen banisters. Featuring energizing music by the amazing Glockabelle and a bit of impressive character work from the entire group as Dale insists on another foray into the world of Deep Night Theater. On this episode: Handsome Gordon and the Space Explorers!

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!

Happy Holiday weekend, everybody! Hope you have a wonderful time eating and then passing out on a couch or a nice bathroom floor somewhere. If you enjoy this program, rate and review us on itunes and subscribe to Dale’s webseries Opening Bags, on YouTube.

To all who came out and to all who listened from afar, you are truly the best.

There’s many other folks who help out with the show – Christine & Kevin & everyone at our new home the PIT; Jena Cumbo and Leah Rae Zimmerman for their photography; Bill Scurry for his video prowess; Julie Miller for encouraging g-chats; Andrea Simmons for her PR work; the gang at Union Hall for their hospitality during our run there; Lecy Goranson for connecting me to a new venue; Katie Mullins for her theme song; Sunil Manchikanti for his great season icon; Daniel Spenser for making such a great logo that I will use over and over again, and to the many family and friends who come out month after month to see the live show, or who provide such great reviews on itunes…you are in our hearts forever.

For those of you who missed the last show – we’ll be doling it out in bits over the month – along with some new video content – but here’s Dale’s monologue to close out the season. Thanks to Bill for putting this together:

Dale Returns to Running Late with Some Hot Spots for Drinking Alone

A group of good lookin folks!

A group of good lookin folks!

OH MY GOODNESS! rang out through the halls of Littlefield once again on May 28th, as Dale returned to Running Late with Scott Rogowsky. The packed place was full of eager Dale fans, (with one or two folks no doubt there to see Scott’s other guests: Steve Buscemi, Brooks Whelan, Katie Nolan, Peter Rosenberg, and Adam Resnick). But Dale delighted the crowd and made some good looking people swoon when he revealed his top three spots for solo drinking this summer. He’s an expert at finding the best spaces in the city to get away from it all and he knows you’re going to love his recommendations. Enjoy this video of his time on the show! For more on Running Late – visit the show’s site, runninglateshow.com.

Dale Returns to Running Late March 26th

1991-1999 were great years for this show.

1991-1999 were great years for this show.

Some of you folks are aware that from 1991-1999, Dale Seever was the original host of the popular New York talk show, Running Late with Scott Rogowsky. Once they found Scott, management decided that it just made sense to have him host the show and gave Dale the boot. At the end of the day and after much reflection and counseling, Dale took this as a positive sign and he can now say that without a doubt, losing that gig was the best thing that ever happened to him. Those were some amazing times and on March 26th at 8:30pm, for the first time in fifteen years, he’s been invited back to the Running Late studio to share stories and laughs with the new crew and put the past behind him.

Along with Dale’s special appearance, Scott will be welcoming guests Pharoahe Monch (Hip Hop Legend), Jessica Williams (The Daily Show, GIRLS), Bill Carter (The New York Times), and Adam Lowitt (also of The Daily Show).

Tickets can be purchased via this link. The event happens at Littlefield, in Brooklyn, 622 Degraw St. between 3rd and 4th Aves. Fans of the old Running Late with Scott Rogowsky starring Dale Seever and new followers of the current Running Late with Scott Rogowsky should definitely turn out. A great night along the Gowanus.
