ASK DR. HAL! RETURNS!
=======You Can’t Keep a Good Show Down=======
Prophetic & Oracular Answers Given– to Any Question!
The Ask Dr. Hal! show is coming back– at a new location!
For the time being, we have parted ways with Chez Poulet and now offer our
February Preview Show at Viracocha, a cozy, tucked-away performance
space at 998 Valencia Street, the corner of 21st & Valencia.
We believe Viracocha is a good fit for our show, and that our regular &
expanding audience will enjoy its comfortable atmosphere and amenities.
And for this & future shows we’re reviving the older tradition of pre-shows
and opening acts.
The programme is planned to please– our first presentation of Ask
Dr. Hal! will feature NYC’s Zero Boy as an opening act.
“Zero Boy is the Elvis of the onomatopoeia, a man who has taken a
Junior High school lunchroom skill and raised and refined it to high art.
No one can touch him at what he does, yet it is impossible to use words to
tell you what that is. He has been called a vocal cartoonist, but he is much
more like a vocal cartoon…
“While he has done heaps of radio (notably National Public Radio’s
Next Big Thing, where he’s had a regular feature called “Stump Zero Boy”),
his gift is not only aural but physical. Seeing him live is best. In a way, his
skill is cinematic. He uses his voice, hands and face to make your mind’s
eye see a picture… He has created an entirely unique theatre form.”
