Dillon Francis’ alias DJ Hanzel unveils air date for new show via Facebook
Francis frequently shows off his acting chops with Hanzel’s hyperbolic character, which initially began as a joke on a string of Instagram videos. The ego-driven techno/ house caricature has since played a headlining show at Exchange LA and went b2b with Drezo at Mixmag’s The Lab LA.
In the video Francis’ posted to his Facebook yesterday, March 20, Hanzel directs fans to his website for cryptic details about an upcoming show. Before the schizophrenic duo bickers back and forth, Francis provides actual details are provided about “One Deeper Talks.” Co-produced by Francis, the program is set to air on Wednesday, March 22.
DJ Hanzel is only one outlet for Francis’ budding comedic genius. He’s recently been cast as ‘Randy’ in the upcoming VICELAND series ‘What Would Diplo Do?’ featuring James Van Der Beek as Diplo. Both Francis and Diplo aren’t shy about poking fun at their high profile DJ lifestyles, frequently humbling themselves with self-deprecating humor.
