Best known for his roles in the hit Showtime series Queer as Folk, as the host of E’s Talk Soup and as a commentator on VH1 fare including I Love the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, Greatest Hard Rock Songs, and many more, Sparks is also an accomplished film actor, with appearances in Dude, Where’s My Car?, Spider-Man 2, Dickie Roberts: Child Star, and the 2009 Mike Judge vehicle, Extract, as well as his own recent Showtime Stand-up special, Charmageddon.
Sparks is also an outspoken activist and a strong political voice, as a regular guest host on the syndicated Stephanie Miller show, and host of his own weekly talk program on Chicago’s Progressive Talk Network. Hal is also a regular guest on CNN, the View, The Joy Behar Show, The Tonight Show, and more, and is co-headliner of 2011’s “Sexy Liberals Tour”, with Stephanie Miller, grossing over a million dollars in ticket sales.
But despite his achievements as an actor and a comedian, Zero1 is far from a celebrity “vanity” project; It is a serious, ass-kicking, Rock and Roll band, with no shortage of chops. Produced by legendary King’s X frontman/bassist Dug Pinnick (who also appears on several tracks), Zero1 is 13 cuts of progressive, catchy-as-f**
On tracks like “Mad Season”, written about late Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, and “Helsinki”
Along with the rest of Zero1, Brian Crow (Guitar/Vocals)
