Deep Night with Dale Live

Featuring guests Dulcé Sloan, Yedoye Travis, and Friends Who Folk.

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 musicians, actors, and comedians including Dulcé Sloan (The Daily Show, Conan), Yedoye Travis (Search Party, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), and Rachel Wenitsky & Ned Riseley who perform as Friends Who Folk (The New Yorker, Ars Nova). With theremin accompaniment by Cornelius Loy.

On Wednesday, January 17th, Deep Night with Dale is live at The Slipper Room in NYC for another hour of regrets, revelations, and rising stars. Comedy, crystals, and making music for the cosmos will be discussed with a stellar lineup of guests and a host made of stardust. Called a “must listen for anyone interested in the art of comedy,” the show has proven Dale’s uncanny ability to highlight the next generation of cultural talents.

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, Lola Kirke, 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 Dale Seever (aka comedian James Bewley). In his black turtleneck and with an owl-shaped amulet (owlmulet) 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 bars, basements, and theaters of every size.

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.
