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: 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!

Dale Radio Season 7: Elle King

Dale throws back a whiskey or two in this conversation with singer/songwriter Elle King. From their booth in a mostly empty bar in Bushwick, Dale and Elle talk about this particular moment in her career and how she’s developed her signature sound. The two entertainers swap stories about making sweet music on the banjo, visiting haunted honky-tonks in Kentucky, breaking hearts, and what it was like growing up backstage at SNL.

Be sure and pick up a copy of Elle King’s new album Love Stuff, available for pre-order now on itunes. For tour info, and more about Elle’s previous recordings, visit elleking.com.

Dale Radio Season 7: Lisa Vikingstad

Lisa is making it happen!

Lisa is making it happen!

Dale tries to recapture the magic of his early days in a conversation with rising comedian and sketch writer, Lisa Vikingstad. Dale wants to know what it’s like to be making comedy as a younger person, and Lisa – like many of her peers – seems to have a lot of things figured out. Over a couple of generous pours of Famous Grouse, the two discuss fending off boredom in high school, Facebook reality shows, surviving sketch comedy, and the many ways in which Dale is similar to Ke$ha.

Follow Lisa Vikingstad on Twitter @lisavikingstad or catch her sometime at The People’s Improv Theater in the house sketch team Totally, Yes!

A reminder that Dale’s doing a first-ever totally alone episode of Dale Radio Live! as part of SOLOCOM 2014. It’s $5, and it happens at The PIT, 123 E. 24th Street, NYC.
