Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our 123rd episode, our returning guest is Carlos Dengler. You first heard Carlos Dengler on Episode 87 and Episode 88 of the podcast.
Carlos Dengler is a New York City actor, writer and musician. He has written for n+1 and Seven Stories Press and is working with Foundry Literary + Media on writing his first memoir.
In 2016, Carlos wrote and performed his first one person show for the New York City International Fringe Festival called Homo Sapiens Interruptus. Later in the year, he understudied for Josh Radnor at Lincoln Center Theater in a production of the Richard Greenberg play The Babylon Line.
Also in 2016, Carlos appeared as a guest musician with the Late Night with Seth Meyers band. Carlos spent the better part of the aughts, from 1997 to 2010, playing bass and keyboards with the band Interpol, which he co-founded with other band members at NYU.
Recently in 2015, he received an MFA from NYU Grad Acting, in addition to a BA in Philosophy, also from NYU, back in 1999. Carlos is on Twitter as@denglercarlos and on Instagram as @carlosandresdengler.
Carlos is also an avid hiker and backpacker and is currently raising money for the Fresh Air Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps inner city kids experience the outdoors. To donate to his campaign, visit his website at www.carlosdengler.com and click on the donate button.
This is a very special episode of The Rob Burgess Show. At the end Carlos will read his essay, “Downtown and Gentrification: Dystopia or Enlightened Future?” published by Seven Stories Press Blog. And just before that, I'm including a snippet of a June 6, 2015 recording of the podcast Weird Adults at the Comedy Attic in Bloomington, Indiana, which I covered as a journalist during the Limestone Comedy Festival.
