Ask Roulette with Starlee Kine, David Carr, Kurt Braunholer and Dave Hill

Wednesday, February 1 , 2012 at 6:59pm

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.

With special guests:

  • Starlee Kine (_This American Life_)
  • David Carr (_The New York Times_)
  • Kurt Braunholer of Hot Tub comedy

with house band: Eli Bolin and the Amazing Jellies

Jody Avirgan 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.
