Kevin Allison was in the belly of the whale for years in between the end of The State on MTV and the creation of his amazingly popular and funny storytelling live show and podcast Risk.  He talks to Will about knowing he wanted to move to NYC at a very early age,  joining the State while attending NYU, what sketch comedy taught him about group dynamics, His perspective on the dissolution of The State, forgetting your act in the middle of a performance at Luna Lounge, and how advice from Michael Ian Black and a storytelling show at UCB lead him to personal storytelling and the creation of Risk.
