UPDATE: The stream is archived here. Thanks to all who came in to watch the interview and/or submit questions! Dale had a ton of fun sharing his stories with you all and said that he's definitely going to come back on in the near future!
Over the past few months, I've been privately communicating with Dale Kelly via email over the possibility of him perhaps coming onto my show to do a live Q&A sort-of-thing. Recently, he said that he finally has time to take out of his busy schedule to do an interview on my show this upcoming Friday at around 6:30pm CST. This will be the first ever interview he's done, and I am very fortunate to be the one presenting it to this tremendous community of dedicated fans.

• What is TheBalishChannel?
Initially opening my YouTube Channel on April 12th, 2009, I have published numerous "rant" videos, critical analyses, and animated skits for over half a decade to moderate success. More recently however, I've been seen broadcasting alongside my friend mariotehplumber live on Twitch every weekend; we often play through a wide variety of videogames with our viewers/followers, and browse the internet in search of hysterical lunacy.
• How can I get my questions answered?
The purpose of this thread is to provide me with questions that you'd like to hear be answered by the man himself. You're also welcome to share any fond memories you may have of Dale's various performances, as I may also relay positive and/or constructive feedback from the community to him.
• Would it be possible for me to present my questions during the interview in the Twitch Chat?
Yes, I will also be asking questions from the chat. However, I may not be able to get to all of them due to the rapid influx of posts that will undoubtedly come. It is recommended that you post your questions here in the thread before Friday, the 29th.
The stream will take place on Friday, January 29th, at 6:30pm CST. It will be livestreamed on TheBalishChannel's Twitch page and will be archived in the "Highlights" section, with an enhanced archive coming to TheBalishChannel's YouTube page.
Because of Dale's busy schedule, there is a slight chance that the interview may be delayed. In the event that it is, you can get instant updates regarding the schedule if you follow me on Twitter. In addition, you can follow me on Twitch to know exactly when the stream starts.
We hope to see you there! Post those questions!
