  Kevin Allison is perhaps best known for his work on the 1990s-era sketch comedy show “The State”. After it wrapped, he found himself adrift, until he discovered that by being himself on stage, he could get big laughs.

He created a risqué live-storytelling show called “Risk,” and he’s bringing it here as part of the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. Host Frank Stasio talks with him about his work.
