Hi! It's me, Dan Potacke and I'd like to invite you to come see my show on Monday, June 15th! As always, it's at the Frequency at 6 p.m and it's free for those above the age of 21.
This time, I've got one of the stars of the new independent horror film, Incest Death Squad: Carmella Wiese! She will talk to me about her adventures making a film with such an... interesting title! Plus, she got to meet Troma President Lloyd Kaufman who has a role in the film.
Then, I've got some folks from Out-On-A-Limbprov, a group that does Improv comedy once a month out at Glass Nickel on Atwood. Maybe they will let me play one of their improv games with them!
Plus, we've also got Sean McKenna to plug his new show: Full Nelson Reilly. It's a Madison variety show that mixes comedy skits with interviews from people around town. Wow, what an original concept for a show!
This is the one. Dan Potacke interviews Madison Mayor Dave and Mustard Museum curator Barry Levenson. Before a packed house at the Frequency, Dan Potacke also gets caught up with his old friend Jon Lyons, presents his ideas for civic improvements for Madison, and once again forgets his monologue notes. With music by the KC / JT Orchestra featuring ACTUAL INSTRUMENTS.

Fresh from filling the Frequency on May 18th as he interviewed Mayor Dave and Barry Levenson, Dan Potacke is getting ready for his next show on June 1st at 6:00 pm.
This time, Potacke welcomes local author and talk show host Stu Levitan. Levitan hosts Books and Beats on Sunday mornings on the Mic 92.1 where he has interviewed guests ranging from Vice President Joe Biden to Joan Baez. He also hosts Access: City Hall on City Channel 12 and has written the premiere book on Madison's history: Madison Volume 1 and is currently working on Volume 2.
Also coming to the stage will be Billy Buffalo and Dudu Stinks from Stink Tank coming off of last year's album Books on Tape, one of the most original albums to come out of Madison in a long time. Sadly, Jimmy French Fries will be unable to attend.
Finally, comedian David Fisher will be there, just to make sure that this random guest list has no cohesion whatsoever.
And maybe I'll e-mail JT and see if he's available.
Hey everybody! Dan Potacke here! So we got the Mayor show coming up this Monday, May 18th @ 6p.m. with Madison Mayor Dave Ceizelwitzen, Mustard Museum Curator Barry Levenson, comedian Sean Moore and amazing live music!
But in the run up to that show, I've been doing some press stuff. For instance, I did an interview with Katjusa Cisar of 77 Square! You can read it online right now and it will also be in the 77 Square section of the Sunday Wisconsin State Journal tomorrow. So you should buy a Sunday paper tomorrow, preferably the Wisconsin State Journal!
The article with my interview: 77 Square: Dan Potacke: Ready to put Mayor Dave to the comedy test.
I also stopped by radio station WORT and appeared on Friday's edition of The 8 O'clock Buzz with Jonathan Zarov. You can download the podcast of the program and please remember to support local radio!
That's right, Dan Potacke is interviewing the Mayor of the City of Madison live on stage.
Prominent local talk show host Dan Potacke has tried to make his show, The Dan Potacke Show, a tribute to everything he loves about Madison. That’s why it is his great honor to announce that Madison’s most prominent civic leader, Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz, will appear live on The Dan Potacke Show on May 18th.
Joining Potacke and the mayor on stage will be the Curator of the Mustard Museum, Barry Levenson, to help us get in the mood for Brat Fest. That's right, Barry "Poupon U" Levenson on the same night as the Mayor.
That night’s show will also feature the talents of comedian Sean Moore, special surprise guests, and live music by... well, we aren't sure yet... but there will be live music.
The show starts at 6 pm at the Frequency at 121 W. Main, the show is free to attend but it is a 21+ show. Doors open at 6 p.m. but seating fills up quick at the Frequency so get there early.
When asked for comment, Potacke said, “Oh, wow, I didn’t think that either Mayor Dave or Barry Levenson would actually come on this show. This is too much pressure.” Potacke then began to sob uncontrollably. Um… please leave that bit about Potacke when you tell your friends to come to this show.
