Let me tell you what your cat every single time. It's fuck you at the your cats say fuck you fuck you fuck you. You're patting me. Now fuck you. i'm hungry now fuck you. I'm going outside fuck you. that's all. I'm saying early easy app to design for that right they remember in op. They had the dog and the dog had a translator. So you can hit so you can hear what the dog was. was barking. They weren't gonna use a cat at first but the movie. Just fuck fuck you care. I wanted to find his way off. I can't like all right. We'll make it a dog. Well in rick and morty the second episode which was fantastic dog learned to talk which means you learn how to speak and then by the time they came back from whatever mission dogs took over the world after they realized what we did to them and they used to be. Wolves Us must record their cats me out to decode. What it means but sanchez is ultimate. Goal is to create a caller that translates a vocal response up. He used the prototype unit on his own kitten during a demonstration on tv. The device said the cat was saying. I'm angry leave me alone. Yeah it's a nice way to say fuck you. of course. I'm going to sit out now. I give angry green. Leave me and this a guy that does the cats. Les can't even keep the cat. Happy saying i don't want to be on. Tv you prick. Oh fascinating stuff. All right well. Thanks for coming on now. Fall fashions all right ladies and gentlemen areas. Mtv's the state. The kevin allison is fantastic. Follow them online. The podcast you wanna download is the risk podcast. People are telling people tell the dirtiest dirtiest secrets their most embarrassing life lessons. It's alright there myself have been on there and let me tell you something. I know there's a lot of storytelling podcasts. And podcasts are storytellers right. But these guys are curated. We didn't just get to go. Yeah got a story they will send it in then book. Call talk to me about it like you're onstage. Run it through then. I'm going to give notes then will book you on the show and it's like i so appreciate that because when you go to show you know there's a lot of there's a lot of shows and now there's a lotta shows online so you don't have to live in the city. Your travel anywhere and people are like. Oh yeah you know that story. Where like you know this big thing happen to. Just just tell that it's just gonna be great and it's like this big thing did have you got shot at. Let's say but that's all that happened. It's weird to say that because you don't know how to say like leading up to it. I was feeling this way. This example of this happened. Let's wrap it up like this. It's just you gave us the shock and the rest of it. We had to piece together. So i love how you guys curate. The content i think it's the best storytelling show. It's so good. And now you doing live shows which is really fun We've been checking out live shows and i. I think it's like a break from lake. A netflix's has alive aspect to it. You're there you have to be there at a certain time. How's that going. Oh my god. It's really really interesting and fun like so we'll have like four different storytellers and like you said we've worked with them on their stories beforehand. And they're all in their own homes. And i'm in my own home and they might be all over the country or sometimes all over the world but then we have like the fans are very reactive we have acuna with the storytellers afterward. But it's really fascinating to see people being like here. I am from australia. I'm over here in denver. Whatever and people really react to the stories so it really is a an interesting communal experience. It like i always feel a lot more connected to humanity after one of our livestreams the next one is december. Four th that'll all be like christmasy or hanukkah sorts of stories and And those laws up. Because you're not going to tell a story about how your dad made the best eggnog. And you know. And till he came over and she was the best and we totally acknowledged her long-term roommate. And all that kinda shit. I'm hard though for you. Kevin to not accept the story. Somebody somebody obviously pouring their heart out that like you know my uncle like my fourteen year old school outfit too much and you could tell. There's no way to fix this up. You don't know how to tell the story you just ignore it right. Well we will often know will work with the person for a time like some. The worst is when someone has. Ptsd obvious that they're kind of having a hard time dealing with the main event in their story and so oftentimes we'll say hey keep working on that story. It's well worth working on. Try maybe doing it in other ways like writing an article definitely be talking to a therapist or people in your life about it. Maybe maybe come back to us in a couple of years because you might be in a better place and they'll pull yourself in the meantime fan ten percent off the talk.

"Jesus christ men and women pummeled a six year old woman at barclays center subway station at the elevator because the woman asked them to wear masks. We beat the shit out. Wow so they right in our neck of the woods and it's and it's during the day these. These incidents are all on camera for. What's that worth is a faulk. Nobody gives us. Do you think. Because i've been thinking about the bible because some people don't believe okay but let's say we weren't bugle times because we've spoken about news reports and this was keith's point where this woman drowned. Three were. kids is a while ago. But there's always something like this. The woman drowns three kids because she said jesus christ came to her vision and said drown your kids and imprison times. Yeah yeah like you know. Five ten years ago. Something like this. And i'm sure it happened last year somewhere blah blah blah And so keith is like why are you prosecuting. This person in biblical times. You'd be like god told you that. Then you gotta kill your kids. We're not going to be abraham story. Two thousand twenty years later he might ask somebody to finish the job right. Know there's no way but on sunday. I believe there's a way and all that will judge the laws in the country out. We all know it didn't really happen because we have to arrest you well. Let's say that happened in other biblical stuff happened for example noah and the ark right so if you believe in that god decided you all suck except for these two people and their two kids and every animal on the planet is going to behave themselves and their lion. Tamers noah and they are giraffe tamers and they know how to deal with turtles all on a boat. That's fine but he got rid of everybody except for this highly in sexual. I mean inevitably family right. So let's say it's twenty twenty instead of water it's a little virus animals thing coming to get us and somebody out. There has some kind of boat or bunker and they're going to be the last people and we're all just drowning. I you know i mean. Grab your crucifix. Actually that's also jewish history right so grab your mcginn. Divide you know and Kissed the thing at the door. Enna i dunno. Enjoy your life. Look the vive by the way fame. But it doesn't know is the share that you sit in. It's a holy chair and that you dance around in clubs. The star of david megan davao. Close i was talking to my people. You gotta warn people in their language special chair. I'm always the one. I you ever have to be one of those guys holding of the lake. So that chair of the group tariff. I would surely drop that per. I am if anything buster. Keaton like can happen to me. Yeah i'm i always get picked. I act like going to the bathroom. They find me. I'm in a going to the. I know what's going to happen. And then they always find me. Maybe because i'm tall. And i'm the one doing the heavy lifting no pun. I could always tell you. Can't call these people out. But you want to. And they go they go like you know fifth verse. I'm like how many fucking songs is. Only chair have in california. They are doing a curfew again ten. Pm to five am. You can't have gatherings. And of course non essential work. It'll take place on saturday. Tomorrow's of recording this alive for one month that what. What's the thinking. So so that i would assume putting a curfew on means that they were too worried about. People gathered in like nightclub. Like that thing you just described with low wayne and all. I guess that's what that's about because i we never had a. We had a curfew because of potential Rioting over george floyd in all But we never had a curfew because of cove right shutting down our trains at one. And we're like no. We need to get home. I don't know how to get home besides that. I mean i'm joking but it's it's interesting to to do a ten o'clock curfew like let's say you are going to. You know your lover's house in by nine thirty only one of you came. And it's like dude. I gotta get home by ten. So let's go start going faster or add some more loop. I dunno whatever your thing is. I'm leaving in five minutes so this isn't me just being selfish. You gotta come. I gotta go get the power. Drill people are mad though right. Haven't you heard from people over in california that they're not happy about this you have to and it's it's amazing that people are vocal about it also like no. I have to be out between ten pm and five job as you're going to be able to go to it if you wanted to say it's essential i it's essential. They're not gonna take care that you're on the street just have plain to be somewhere but yes it's about two. It's to stop these parties. I don't know about you kevin. I don't wanna brag. I'm being insensitively invited to way too many parties now where they promised masks but the party starts at ten pm and i'm like all right. What the fuck well. I can't make it. I'm having a speedy spitting party male. We just hawkin each other's mouths across the room like what the fuck is going on. Are you invited the things you seen this on like. Hey let me visit a beach right. Be dave everybody's have all over the place and so difficult you know. Like i have friends who are like trying to navigate the fact that their whole family wants to get together for thanksgiving. But now i've got a fight with my whole family about how this doesn't make sense. I mean i've been to several occasions like for. During when the protests were at their peak during the summer i was out at a lot of those protests wearing a mask and there was research that came in that it wasn't so bad to be at protests with mass song but i did once go to a beach like toward the end of the summer as well. A friend was like oh. I've been we just go to the far end and we'll be like twelve feet away from anyone else on any part of the beach and i mean of all of all places you know. It seems like a lot of space. Yeah yeah and you know. The wind is always blowing. So there's less chance of you know whatever but no is on there. It was it was wall to wall people like it was kind of a nerve wracking day. Smoke some pot and all of a sudden be a months. All of these people most not wearing masks and be like jesus. Christ what have i got myself into. You have a beard but otherwise like a couple you know we're gonna we're gonna get a bearded maske ten now and by the way now there's news. That masks are much less effective for people with facial hair. Because there's enough ways of that you know opening things up or getting in the way or yada yada yada so so people don't know what to do. And what are the rules like. You just admitted you're forty five year old child. What i wear two masks often. And now i have a three ply mask so i don't know you know. I always switching up the mass based on whatever the latest. I've heard is here's the thing i saw like because we're on kickstarter A sort of clicking around and found this mass kickstarter thing and it was like end of the world. Type things like a good master like deuce leaders for this and then this lynch look at this technology and blah blah blah and and then and this is twenty twenty. It's currently you know Being requested to be funded but then they go and this is much better than to know similar to our mass that we put out in twenty sixteen as a. What the fuck where you expecting in two thousand sixteen in twenty sixteen. They put out a super deluxe mask. Night forget why they were saying you need it like for at for some regular weird shit that you wouldn't normally like it wasn't for work or anything it was. Oh just highly. Polluted areas like If you think you're your area so polluted state clean with this. So i don't know somewhere before twenty twenty. This was a trend. Enough to like skyrocket their kickstarter of people just wanting to wear masks. Yeah speaking so in california. Where i'd said they're going to have that curfew for a month ten pm to five..

"I think I could've around. The Grill. Spoke with me. They're fucking with me. They know my history. I can't believe you still don't know what three feet is. Is it now just like a block in your head that you can't? That's why I thought it was so big. Those were tough today to me was like you're talking about this. Six Thousand Grill. He's giving away fucking huge. Have you ever met anyone? Kevin with a trauma the term three feet the measurement of three feet. I have not. It's fun right like you never know how. You're abused until you started talking about it. On a podcast. Skip the number. Thirteen in like elevators. Late seats I skip the number three. Oh that's that's why Keith is really happy that like the covert thing is making a six feet distance. I think three feet would give him hives. Oh yeah although six feet is double three how he wasn't. He wasn't taught math growing up. So we can still kind of you know work around these things three persons in one God. All that religion stuff bothered me obviously. Yeah yeah all right. Les mentioned some shows. You guys want to check out their virtual. I know I know like me. I'm like what is on TV. That I haven't seen yet. I didn't see that Seinfeld special. That's brand new. But don't forget. Seinfeld was thirty eight and he dated a seventeen year old. Dropped her off at school now unless he's talking about that and let the sugar that sticks to the bottom of a cereal box. I don't know interested I you're a millionaire. You had your sit together as far as we know. You're thirty eight and you dropped your date your love offense school and you're the fastest person go one? We have to keep shaking hands like you're the first person that normal things are both but this was aware. Now where's that act? I saw the special and In all fairness I fell asleep in the first half. Insurgencies fell asleep in the second half but we thought it was good It is it is what you expect it to be no. He didn't talk about Sheshona. The seventeen year old but while circus was sleeping and I was watching. I googled about that because I wanted to see if the wife that he was talking about in the show. Is that same girl? It is not but then when he woke up I was like remember when Seinfeld dated a seventeen year old as a thirty eight year old and he goes. No that's right. They fucking push that shit out of the media so quickly it was it started to spread and then all of a sudden it was gone as as only as in a person with at the time. Seinfeld was the number one most popular human for us. Only people at that level can squash something down like this and it was squashed so quickly. But it wasn't just that she was seventeen. She was still in high school like He. Actually he did. He would drop her off in Seventeen Year. Old would be like. I was in college when I was seventeen. Only because I'm a December baby so I don't know how you rationalize that or whatever. I don't think there's a difference but just the fact that you're like my girlfriend's in your mind that you're reminded all the time what's school property is. Do you know what I mean as soon as we pass the little bridge over the lake. Then we're clear but I'll tell you this I know that the con- the consent age children is seventeen In New York and I know that because when the police used to hit on me they would tell me that really. Oh Jesus Rice Seinfeld thing in New York. Is that New York state by state. I think he met her in Central Park and she fakes creepy in a little way. But it's also international lawn so much they can do but she even moved to like. Ucla says she could be closer to him because he was filming in La and it is very dangerous to be letting people know that Central Park is international. I mean I don't have all the ripped up some of these papers making jokes. I don't know what's true and what's not in half of it but here's what you can check out with a clear conscience. Only New York is doing a live show. And this podcast. That's Andrea Allan. It's this Saturday. We've some surprise people. Also that will be showing up. We'll have a QNA you go to only in New York.

Gosh what how weird is that didn't have an erection and yet I sounded hot and yet I also found it hilarious and yet it was also terrified. What an incredibly charmed life to be in a pandemic antenna miss being beaten up. I think that if you wanted to have any gratitude that you can put that in a mathematical problem and come out on top. That's for sure. The other day we had on just would and she was talking about letting somebody enduring quarantine but swears that yes they did have sex. They both wore masks. Have you ever heard of anything a AS INSANE BE? Have you had the baited about doing that? You know it's so funny because on the king gaps. I hear all kinds of guys saying oh my.

Why did you go sleep with that person? It's a pandemic and we are negotiating. If masks on counts as a condom. Remember the big animals that we are and that we're all we all think we're like virgins again two months. Oh my God and doing crazy things like I did. I did drink my own P. Y.

People are out demanding that their waitresses and hairdressers go back to work It's a great point a good point. Yeah Oh my God so so selfish so so entitled demanding. In fact I'm looking at.

Two thousand people died one hundred thousand by the time I finish this fucking paper open things so fast from people are I bet. They're short staffed. So you can't get the editing. They used to in these newspapers. That only Keith Buys Look You oh my God yeah and you know like speaking of the selfishness thing you know the way I I hate to even bring him up.

"And that was amazing and joyous to see. And for some reason, I was very like hesitant about participating in that kind of improvisation. I'm and I'm very sensitive. It's done two hundred dollars. And I think I finally after all these years kind of let that go of it. Well, I do think there is a real truth for performers about how you can often be your most intimate in revealing when you are at your most public. Yeah. I don't know why that is. I don't understand the mechanism behind that. Yeah. But it's certainly true that there is a level of intimacy that can be achieved when you are bearing yourself in front of others that often is very very hard to achieve one on one. Yeah.

And I started reading it. And I'm like, well, this might be the nine thousand th book that I would change my life. But that actually, well, it seems like you are you are relatively good place. Are you emotionally? Yes. Yes. I am what I'm trying to do is take a look at these old thought patterns that no longer fit. You know, my therapist always saying to me. Yeah. None of this. Like, you've are like on the show. I talk about drinking P and being tied up and all this. Stuff. And it's a real like people consider me a real hero for like saying fuck you to shame. And yet I still have those scripts in my head. So yeah, I am very I'm in the best place. I've ever been in my entire life. But still have to deal with voices beating myself up in my head as we all do I suspect we always will. But we learned tools to deal with food. There is a place called speedy Romeo's in bed stuy. I think there's a few of them. But yeah, just that is it would fired. Yeah. I had one last night not from speedy Romeo's new restaurant in my town called millstone. I'll give them a plug because it was terrific had something called the salad pie. Golo caramelized onions on wood-fired pizza. Don't stink. Yeah. Tv or film. Gosh right now, the one I'm immersed in is sharp objects. Have you seen that? No. It's it's one of the ones that my wife, and I are talking talk. We're in new we're negotiating about whether or not we're going to watch that we're not going to get to the level of will you should in my mouth. But we may get to the to the point of will you watch sharp objects with there you go. You negotiate and consent around that. No, it's interesting because it's about the mid west. So really, I'm like, oh, I'm recognizing a lot of the way that people act, and there's a lot of alcoholism and self harm in the show. So it's it's it's hard to watch. But it's really interesting, and then finally miscellaneous anything from your life that gives you joy, I would say, you know, that way. How do I want to say this? I need to remember that when I do work on new stories when I when I do come up with new stuff or just improvise something one of the things that I have always been such a control freak like my big stories like Kevin goes to king camp and stuff like that are really really written. I mean, I'm I'm making it sound like they aren't but they are. But it's really fun now that I'm so God damn busy that off. Oftentimes, I'll just be like let me just tell this story in front of the audience and see what the fuck happens, even though I just thought about it for thirty seconds backstage, and that can be incredibly euphoric for me. I have realized that we I'm I'm I'm. I'm studying mindfulness. What I've realized is when I'm on stage. I am I am mindful. It's the moment I get off that. That's when the voices start beating me up. You know, so living a little bit more in that creative zone of. Hey, let's just share this or let's follow this through or let's. You know, it's improvisation. I was so afraid of that when we were in the state when when people would start. Improvising. Something back and forth. Just hanging out. Just just socialized. Like UN Tom doing the Barry white routine. Burien lavar on I watched you guys create that sketch from just joking around with each other for a couple of days..

"But I found that I had some sort of connection with them that I had not felt I don't know that I never felt it before they were they kept leaning forward. Yeah. There was like this electric city between me and the audience and afterwards people didn't just say that was funny, but people were saying shit like, well, I'm never prostituted myself. But that did remind me of this thing that yada yada, yada. And I realized that night I walked down eighth avenue away from the theater that night. And I was like it all came together. I was like I have to create a show called risk that will force me to be onstage on a regular basis on a deadline because for twelve years, I've been voiding that and it needs to be a podcast because small theater shows are not going to get you anywhere in life. So I started conceiving the whole thing that night. It was Friday. The rent was due on Monday. And he said to me Cav, I'll tell you something a lot of people don't realize this. But prostitution. Can be fun. I said. The great thing is is that fans of the show will hear it. And then pitch us their stories. And so when we go to some place like Saint Louis or Orlando or wherever people come out of the woodwork with these incredible stories who have never even stood on a stage before risk. I would say is all all things flow from the top. And it is exactly like you are. I mean, it is absurd and hilarious and filled with contradictions and deeply empathetic and very human. And that is I think the great gift of risk. And the reason it has succeeded and continues to succeed. Thank you. Thank you. As we. I mean that was just a beautiful way to kind of conclude. The interview portion of it. I I'm really talent. Pid at this. Kevin. But as we we end every episode with the amazing five in which I will ask for a recommendation from you in each of five categories, and you are a huge music fan. So I will ask for a recommendation in music anything that moves you that you would like to share with others. Oh my gosh. You know, what's difficult is that I have I have to listen to new music constantly now in order to find new songs for risk. But what I do find is. So like really speaks to my soul and his his meditative is like your John Coltrane and miles Davis. Like, there's I think that there's a new collection out of some of the stuff that those two have done together. But anything the two of them did together is absolutely like. Something I can just like, I don't know. Why just like absolutely go someplace meditated with? Yeah. So specifically the collaborations between miles Davis. Yeah. There are several collections..

"He's turning you out. He totally what like the whole time. We live together. I was like I don't know how he makes the rent like Jesus literally. Can I say this? Yeah. Anyway. Yeah. Kevin Spacey would come to the apartment. Can say. To see my friend. My friend looked like a cub scout in a nineteen. Fifties Walt Disney movie he looked about two twelve years younger than he was. But anyway, he was age though, let us he wasn't. We are not accusing Kevin Spacey of anything. He was absolutely. He was absolutely age. So anyway available for a price. Yeah. And clearly one of those younger guys who likes older guys, you know. So it didn't occur to me when he was advising me on how to prostitute myself. Oh, it would help if I Kevin also liked older guys. You know what I mean? So anyway, he he went through his seven laws of successful whoring with me and sent me off to there used to be hustler bars before Giuliani shut down so much of gay culture at that time, and I went to one of these Asmara bars and tried to prostitute myself, and it's a it's a comedy of errors. I ended up with toll. Total asshole. And we ended up like a fist fight in the back of cab. Like with my pants down. So he's like I'll tell that. That'll be the first story I tell so I contacted this woman who was doing a show at UC. Like, can I tell a story I want to try something really risky, and she said sure and the day of I called her as like, you know, what forget it. I can't do. I've gotta pull out. And she said why I said, I, you know, it just feels too risky, and she said, that's a great side. So she was like if you do it. It'll probably be the one that knocks it out of the park. So I was like, okay. I keep hearing this. So I go and tell the story, and I bumped up against all that beat myself up shit while I was telling the story I bumped into places where I'm like Jesus that sounded so fucking gay or oh my God. That was so mid west it like the part where you went to a gay hustler barter prostitute yourself did that scene gave you?.

"I can tell the little legend of how risk began. For years. I was doing solo shows where I would get up and play crazy kooky characters like the guy who can't figure out if he's Charles Manson, and I was kinda getting nowhere with it. And in two thousand I actually left the performing arts entirely for four years. I decided, oh, maybe I'll go back to college and bury myself in books and become like, an editor or something like that. A woman reached out to me when I was working as a book editor, and she said would you like to teach a sketch comedy class? And I was like, well, I mean what the fuck. Yeah. I'll give that a shot. And so of a sudden I was standing in front of these like fifteen kids who were big fans of the state, and I found myself like being totally Frank with them sharing really emotional stuff, and then being completely absurdist and and sharing fifth where I'm like, I don't know if this job go over, but let's see and suddenly finding oh these people are like enjoying just who I am naturally while I'm speaking in front of them. So I think that's started like some gears turning, but still I thought it would be a good idea to mount one last character show. So I put together a show called f. Up about five characters who had eft up their careers. So it was very autobiographical without actually being me. Like one of the characters was like back in the twenties and old vaudeville performer, a Jewish Vaughn Ville performer, whose partner had gone onto Hollywood and become a multimillionaire. And he was struggling. So it was clearly me trying to get it something. But I did I did this show at San Francisco sketch fest in two thousand nine you were you were one of the like fifteen people in the audience that night in the mics weren't working. So I was screaming. It was. I was sweating. I was a mess. I was way overweight at well. I still am. Anyway, it was a mess. F- up wasn't F up or at least that night. It was. And we were walk- afterwards. We were walking along once again strolling around a park, and you said to me. Yeah. It was great. But I think you might try dropping the act I think you should just get up on stage and start telling your own true stories, and I said, but I too many things that people might not get I was so afraid of like impressing Hollywood casting agents. So I was like, no, I'm to mid western polite and to kinky and gay and to intellectual to absurd. It's like it's a weird mix. So it just feels I said if that would be so risky, and you said that's the whole fucking idea. Like like if it feels risky than you're probably opening up somewhat. And so the audience might be interested in opening up to you so on the plane ride home, and I thought okay, the risk of story. I could. Think of at the time was the first time I prostituted myself, which was literally. So if you remember the state did our pilot. Yeah. Right. And then they kept us waiting for like what like six months or so to find out if we were going to series. Like, I have executive function disorder. If any if that exists if that's not just something Oprah was. So, you know, I I spent those six months being like, I I don't know what how to make money. In the meantime, so my roommate said to me what prostitution is a lot more fun than you might think. This is my roommate who who's pimping you out..

"There was a thing. I think we called them eleven o'clock meeting or midnight meetings. So so, yeah, if if the group decided, we gotta get rid of someone they were out we would have these meetings like late at night, and you're usually in charge because every why well everyone else was drunk for one thing, and you were always sober. But no what else. I felt like if we were going to do a shitty thing. I wanted to be the one to do it. Like, I wanted to take that responsibility. Interesting. I didn't want to I wanted to own feeling shitty about doing something. That's amazing. Will you also were took it on to be the person who invited me into the grew. I don't remember that. Did I yeah. We was nice of me. We I remember the shitty things. I don't remember the nice things. Will you did something shitty at the very good? What did I? We were with the group with walking along what what's the part? What's that part Washington square park? Yeah. We're walking along the park and the rest of the group starts hold back and you start to walk forward with me. And you're like come on over here. And you invite you said, we'd like to officially invite you into the group, and I was it was funny because I wanted to hug you. But at the same time would that be on cool? You know that kind of and then you said so now you can ride our coattails. It was really funny. Like, I didn't I didn't have anything against you for making that joke. But it did set a tone for me. I was like oh God. It was a reminder of how there was that Roasti thing young group. And the thing was I. As far as ego goes like the whole idea of being so Roasti with each other. As a group was to take someone down a peg, you know, what I mean in order to like, and I am the kind of person who. Doesn't have that big of an ego to begin. You know, what I mean like is already? Very easily hurt or scared or whatever, you know. So and being the only gay guy in the group was also scary for me because so much of the conversation that the group was always having was very heterosexual male. You know what I mean? And there would be jokes about women or about gays certain point and carry was really good at handling that like she could dish it right back. And, you know, get a little hope from the group, and I was not I was not good at that kind of thing..

"Well, we're talking about shame in. We're talking about the state, which is the sketch comedy group that we were both a part of and. I have to confess my own deep. Shame about the state and about in particular, my relationship with you and other people from the state because of my own terror in conduct as a result of that terror in being in that group, and you talk about your own terror being in that group. Can you can you explain I guess what the state was? And how you saw your role in it. What's interesting? I make a funny story out of seeing Joe literally in the hallways and thinking Jesus Christ as he hot and literally like like kind of trailing around figure out what classes he was going to be in. So I was stalking him and literally stood outside the drop add counselors office is what is he dropping? And what? And I got into a class that he was in. And he announced my group is doing this show, by the way long before I knew who the state were was I also saw you waiting for the elevator at the main building and thought you were super hot.

"I saved it until a week before going to NYU. I was like mom and dad, I have something to tell you now that the plane tickets are bought, and I read it to them from cards. I've read a speech to them from index cards, and 'cause I didn't want to lift my eyes to see what was happening, and she was crying. And he was like he had actually asked me about it in my sophomore year of high school. He took me out on a walk. See my dad is a very gentle guy. But I guess it's it's the case where you have a very overbearing mother, and a very, you know, like gentle, but but often not present dad he took me out on a walk. And he was like, you know, there are a lot of people I admire from history like like Michelangelo and Leonardo. And by the time, he got to Oscar Wilde or something. Oh, fuck what all the time? He got to John wall. I was. He said something along the lines of you know, they experienced love or something like that differently. Have you ever felt that way? And I think a lot of people will tell you. And did you know exactly what he was talking about it? I did I totally figured it out after hearing value of those names. But I just wasn't ready. I was just caught off guard. I wanted to do it on my own time. So I said, no. And so when I came out at eighteen like two or three years later, he was kind of hurt. He said, you know, I asked you about that. And I said, I just wasn't ready. And then my mom said will you said you came out to yourself when you were twelve why didn't you tell us back, then even and I said because you would have said, you're twelve so. Yeah. Oh, but you know, what? The worst part of the whole coming out situation was a week before. I came out my mom, and I were doing the dishes together. I was drawing. She was washing the dishes, and she had tears in her eyes. And I was like what's going on? And she said, oh, I was thinking about your uncle J C, who's a priest. And I was thinking how sad it is that he can't have intimate and intimate relationship because he's a priest and I thought okay, and then I came out and then Phew. Days later, we're doing the dishes again, and she's like half you thought about becoming. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I went to Jesuit high school. There was a priest who I never said a word. He was the guy who raised. He was the fund raising prison of the high school who called me into his office. When the focus about is Like, like. we have this seven week trip to work with the poor in Peru. I really think you should do this. And I was like how do, you know, clearly talk to other priest and yes and this kid, so I went for seven weeks to work with the poor and Peru with the Jesuits and sure enough when I came back I had a story to tell and they had me share it in front of thirteen hundred kids. And that was it's it's really interesting the whole thing with risk is. I realized once I created risk. Oh, I'm just putting together all these things that I've been doing my whole life. You know, what I mean because I ran into that priest later after that whole big speech, and he said 'cause they always used to talk the Jesuits have a motto be a man for others. And he said when you told that story, you didn't think you didn't. What you were going to do in Peru felt guilt ridden for not knowing how to interact with people at cetera et cetera. But when you told that story, you're a man for others. And it's funny that I kind of like forgot about that, you know, until years later when I started the show, and I was like, yeah. That that that was a that was an early sign to me of what to be doing in the future. And does that. Does that sense being a man for others inform risk today? Absolutely. Like people say what is too risky to go on the show. Wh-what? What stories do we reject?.

"This has spawned live shows all over the country. And I think all over the world. Yeah. Yeah. We've done this show in London. I don't think I've said you're Mamiit done. Did you know? Kevin allison. Met with both teenagers. But risk has also spawned a company called the story studio, and now a book entitled risk true stories people never thought they dare to share featuring stories from among others. Mark, marinate you Tyler, Dan, savage and myself, and I am tickled tickled to welcome by dear friend. Kevin Allison to how to be amazing. Hello, hello. So I know a lot about you, obviously. But I don't feel like I know that much about your upbringing in Cincinnati. You're one of five I'm one of five kids. Yeah. Big Catholic family. I was the fourth of five. It was the early seventies. I was born in nineteen seventy and my family was extremely Catholic very, very Catholic. What did that mean to you? Because because my wife grew up, very Catholic, and that meant something very different than the way. I understood Catholicism which was a very exclusive constrictive binding agent of terror. Well, it's fascinating. Because there when it came to sex, it was they were my mother, especially was terrified of sex, the very word sex would make her go pal. She had five kids you can bring that. I know it is very peculiar. And I was the wrong kid to have. Not to like, you know. Comfortable with sacks. So yeah. Yeah. No. It was. But everything else they were like Kennedy, Democrats my daddy even marched in March with Dr Martin Luther King at one point. And so they were very much like, you know, anti-vietnam and stuff like that. You know, they were kind of social Justice Catholics. Exactly. But they were also just very very devout and very convinced or at least, my mom that you know, there were certain things you just didn't talk about. And that we're just there was a lot of what will the neighbours think just a very puritanical worry about like our next door. Neighbors were not Catholic and almost everyone around was Catholic. So I remember from very young age. Just all this judgment about the people who live next door for just from your family. Specially from my mind like, they don't get it. Like, you know, I'd be like yet. They they get Pepsi. They have an Atari. It's like well. Yes. Because they're not Catholic. They don't understand. What all it is. As opposed to what was the Catholic drink of toy. No as opposed to like powdered mill. Oh, okay. They were decadents. Oh, yes. I see. Exactly. So there was a there was a little bit of there was a kind of acetic quality to your Catholics. Definitely. My dad was huge into all of the most masochistic aspects of the Jesus story where you know, he suffered this, you know. It's better to be poor. You know, so one of the things that definitely gave me, was empathy. You know, because I just grew up assuming that I didn't understand, you know, like, I think my mom and my dad were a little different that way. She was so judgmental, and he was so well, you don't know what what another person might be going through and think of Jesus and all that kind of thing. So so it's interesting. There was a lot of good influence like my dad was obsessed with the artistic side of Catholicism. He was always playing Mozart Beethoven and Honda l-. And was you know, we had all sorts of books of Michelangelo and Leonardo and all that kind of stuff. So that was intransigent to me. Sure. A lot of Dixon balls in that situation. Got a lot of gays. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But there was definitely that. I remember 'cause I was twelve years old when I finally said out loud to myself. I am gay. And by that time, I felt like finally I'm saying this because I had really been conscious of it from from day one. And I grew up terrified about it. And I remember thinking, okay, I've said it out loud. I guess the next step is to tell the parents and that very day sexual healing by Marvin Gaye came on the radio, and my mom came in to my sister and me and she said when that song comes on the radio the radio goes. Shut it off. And I was like, yeah. I'm not coming out there..

How to be humans? My guest today is an old friend who I met when we were both teenagers, and we both became members of a sketch comedy troupe called the state which ended up having a show on MTV. And when the state broke up Kevin struggled for years before finding success as the founder of risk, which is in you, probably know it if you know podcasts, you probably know risk.
