Deep Night with Dale Live!

Featuring guests Kristen Bartlett, Matt Rogers, Rae Sanni, and Melinda Taub.

A talk show about the dark art of comedy hosted by the otherworldly comedian and mystic, Dale Seever. On this live episode, Dale welcomes a celebrated panel of writers and comedians including Kristen Bartlett (SNL, Difficult People), Matt Rogers (Las Culturistas, Comedy Central) Rae Sanni (The President Show, Girl Code), and Melinda Taub (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Adam Ruins Everything). With cosmic musical accompaniment from Cornelius Loy, on the theremin.

On Wednesday, September 20th, Deep Night returns live to the Slipper Room for the official start of its 10th sensational season. Comedy, politics, and star-crossed lovers will be discussed in this uniquely weird talk show where the guests are real and the host is completely made up. Called a “must listen for anyone interested in the art of comedy,” the show has proven Dale’s uncanny ability to highlight rising stars and the phenomenal comedic talents of tomorrow. With a guest list that has included such luminaries as John Early, Kate Berlant, Jo Firestone, Aparna Nancherla, Ilana Glazer, Bridget Everett, Cole Escola, Janelle James, Jackie Kashian, Matt Besser, Chris Gethard, Elle King, and Sasheer Zamata among others, seeing the show is almost like seeing the future of entertainment. Or it may be an essential oils pyramid scheme.

About the Host
Your guide through the Deep Night is the garrulous guru of gab, Dale Seever (aka comedian James Bewley). In his black turtleneck and with an owl-shaped amulet around his neck, Dale offers a healing voice in the wee hours of the evening, that moment when the ceaseless night gives way to another endless day. Dale has performed across the country to sold-out halls and enthusiastic crowds in small bars and basements. He’s been hailed as a “post-modern Garrison Keillor”, “reminiscent of Alan Partridge”, with “a voice like a shoulder squeeze”.

James Bewley is a Brooklyn-based performer whose work has been presented as part of numerous comedy and storytelling shows across the country. Deep Night with Dale welcomes an eclectic lineup of comedians, artists, and other creatures of the night to talk about their lives and creative pursuits. Bewley trained at Upright Citizens Brigade and has made regular appearances at Joe’s Pub, Ars Nova, NYC Podfest, SF Sketchfest, Union Hall, Littlefield, and UCB NY among other fine venues.
