At17 with Leslie Goshko and Gary Burton. Ep.4 - Kevin Allison
Kevin Allison joins Leslie and Gary for a whirlwind ride from teens to triumph as a devastatingly funny and honest performer. Hear tales of hypnotizing friends, the pains (and later pleasures) of acclimatizing to life as a young gay man in NYC and, what can only be described as, "the one with the cucumber." Buckle up, strap in..!
Allison created and hosts the uncensored weekly audio podcast RISK!, a storytelling show "where people tell true stories they never thought they'd dare to share." RISK! is also a monthly live show in New York City and Los Angeles. Allison tours to other cities with the show on a consistent basis as well.
The live show debuted in August 2009 at Arlene's Grocery in New York and moved to Joe's Pub in October with guests like Margaret Cho, Rachel Dratch, Michael Ian Black, Andy Borowitz, and Janeane Garofalo dropping their usual material for a night to tell unusually honest and often embarrassing stories.
