Ask Dr. Hal!

The Ask Dr. Hal! Show

For those who are interested in our San Francisco underground cabaret scene, here’s a link to my night club act, which we call the Ask Dr. Hal! Show.

Besides the usual format of questions asked and answered, this episode featured performances by Sophia the Harp Lady, Go-go dancers The Devil-Ettes, beatbox and story auteur Zero Boy, poet Whitman McGowan and others.

This clip is from the Winter Installment of March 30th — Warning: Occasional Mature Language and Subject Matter!!

If you check it out and would like to go straight to the go-go girls and gorilla suits, look about 35 minutes in. AND for those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area: This Coming Friday Don’t Miss the Live Spring Installment of Ask Dr. Hal!

In San Francisco’s Historic Mission District!
