011 - Kevin Allison - On the sketch writing process at The State and ordinary people telling RISK!-y stories

April features an interview with comedic writer, actor and storyteller, Kevin Allison. Kevin’s first appearance into the public spotlight was on the extremely bizarre and beloved MTV sketch series The State. He is now the host and curator of RISK!, one of one of the Internet’s edgiest storytelling podcasts “where people tell true stories they never thought they’d date to share” and the head instructor of The Story Studio where storytelling is taught to everyone from performers to executives.

Brian and Kevin discuss the unique culture of The State and how it reflected in their comedy, their writing process, Kevin's discovery and love of what happens when ordinary people talk about extreme situations onstage, and how he prepares a story for a RISK! event.
