Guest event: Deep Night with Dale
Guest event: Deep Night with Dale
Now in its tenth year, this live talk show is hosted by James Bewley in the guise of his garrulous alter ego, the turtleneck-wearing, essential-oils-peddling, wannabe-wellness-guru, Dale Seever. Each hour-long show is an opportunity for Dale to subject a panel of invited guests to his unique line of questioning. On this Deep Night, Dale welcomes actor Griffin Newman (The Tick), comedian Emmy Blotnick (Late Show with Stephen Colbert), actor Lindsey Broad (In The Dark), along with rapper and performer Sammus (The New Negroes) to talk about comedy, crystals, nerding out, and more. With music on the theremin by Cornelius Loy and dance from 96B Dance Theatre.
