Ask Roulette: Sam Biddle, Hallie Haglund, Jon Ronson, and Eli Bolin

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at 7:00pm

During Ask Roulette, strangers ask each other any question they want, big or small, in front of a live audience. It’s not as intimidating as it sounds. In fact, it’s built on trust — you can only ask a question once you’ve answered one. If you prefer, you can just be part of the crowd.

Questions are serious or silly, and answers are short or long. Over the course of the evening, you’ll get unexpected connections, surprising anecdotes, and honest conversation. You’ll also laugh.

Special guests:

  • Gawker's Sam Biddle
  • Hallie Haglund, writer for The Daily Show
  • Jon Ronson, author of Lost at Sea and The Psychopath Test
  • house band Eli Bolin of Story Pirates and Sesame Street (@elibolin)

and a special surprise or two!

Jody Avirgan (@jodyavirgan) is the the host of Ask Roulette. He is a producer at WNYC Radio, where the Ask Roulette model was first tested out on the Brian Lehrer Show. Jody lives in Brooklyn and likes questions more than answers.
