29: Kevin Allison: Cruising

Tina was pretty over the moon to talk to legendary comedian/storyteller/perv Kevin Allison about cruising. What do anonymous semi-public BJs have to do with gay male cultural heritage, and – more importantly – where are the best spots in NYC to get/give one? On his podcast, RISK!, Kevin is not shy about his erotic exploits, and this episode pokes around in the tons and tons of tiny little closet sized rooms in the bathhouse of some dirty minds.

DISCUSSED: The Secret Spiral Staircase of the Limelight / One Night in Central Park / The Bijou/ The West Side Club / The Guy Who Made Me Tie My Shoes To My Balls / “Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here” / Heart on my Sleeve, Cards on the Table / The Shadow World Where Rules Don’t Apply


With his writing and acting work on the legendary sketch comedy series The State on MTV, as well as Stella, Reno 911!, Flight of the Conchords, Comedy Bang Bang, the performance troupe Blue Man Group and more, Kevin Allison has created all kinds of stories. In 2009, Kevin created RISK!, the live show and audio podcast where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share. The podcast is now downloaded by over a million listeners per month. As the founder of The Story Studio, Kevin has coached bestselling authors, famous comedians, and brilliant teachers and executives from a wide spectrum of fields.
