Let’s be honest, The Most Interesting Man in the World is a beer commercial. But we all know some interesting people. Imagine cramming them all into one room and talking to them. Now imagine doing it on stage.
Comedian James Bewely must have done that because his alter ego — aspiring entertainer and podcaster Dale Seever — is bringing some interesting people to the Hammer Museum in West LA for “Deep Night With Dale Seever”. Everyone’s invited and it’s free.
Just like a televised talk show, Bewley will perform a quick monologue, interview the guests and schmooze with the audience. But this will be live and in-person, so expect plenty of craziness. Dale is always ready to hop in and “make something happen” and cross-talk about his guests’ unusual areas of expertise.
“Everyone stays up on stage,” Bewley said. “I’m interested to see how people interact.”
Bewley’s guests include comedian Kate Berlant; composer Cyrus Ghahremani, whose music has been featured on Comedy Central and Cartoon Network; and Megan Rosenbloom, medical librarian and director of the aptly named “Death Salon”.
“My interest is, obviously, characters,” Bewley said. “Kate does some pretty interesting characters. Megan has a lot of information about the character of death.”
Bewley said he’s thrilled to be back at the Hammer Museum, where he did a live taping of a podcast in January 2012.
“It’s always great to perform for friends and people who I haven’t seen in a long time,” he said. “I’m also genuinely interested in what everybody’ talking about. So this is going to be a fun show.”
“Deep Night with Dale Seever” is going down on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 7:30 p.m. For more information, including where to park, visit Hammer.ucla.edu.
