Ask Roulette is the conversation series in which strangers ask each other questions, live on stage. Come with a question you want to ask a stranger and you'll be randomly paired -- answer a question first, then you get to turn around and ask someone your question. Questions can be silly, serious, weird, whatever. Over the course of the evening, you’ll get unexpected connections, surprising anecdotes, and honest conversation. You’ll also laugh. 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 and watch. Anna Sale, host of WNYC's Death, Sex & Money (@annasale) Jay Smooth of Fusion, Race Forward, and WBAI (@jsmooth995) house band Eli Bolin of Sesame Street and Story Pirates (@elibolin) Jody Avirgan is the the host of Ask Roulette. He is a podcast host/producer at ESPN's FiveThirtyEight. Before that, he was 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. Pre-sale tickets go off sale at 4PM on the day of the show. $8 walk-up tickets are available at the door, cash or credit, when the doors open at 6:45PM.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
