Ask Roulette
Ask Roulette
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.

Here's how it works. On stage are two chairs, separated by a divider. The audience can see both chairs, and the people on stage can see the audience; but the people on stage can't see each other. Participants are selected one at a time from questions submitted in advance. When your name is called, come on stage and sit in the empty seat. The previous participant will ask you their question. Once you've answered, the next participant will come on stage and you'll ask them your question. Your host will occasionally jump in to ask follow-up questions or move the evening along. If you're on stage, you'll be asked to turn your back as the next participant is selected and takes his/her seat. It's this anonymity -- not knowing who you're posing your question to - that's at the heart of the experience

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.
