Interview and Performance with David Cale.

Comic monologuist David Cale. He is one of the rising stars of the loosely-knit New York performance scene that brought out stars like Spalding Grey, Eric Bogosian and Laurie Anderson. In "Smooch Music," one of his best-received monologues, Cale, accompanied by a saxophonist, interweaves 23 vignettes on romance in New York City, with characters that range from the president of a swinger's club to pubescent boy who makes hickeys on his neck with a vacuum cleaner hose.
