Ask Roulette is a “conversation series” in which strangers ask each other questions live on stage and the end result is “unexpected connections, surprising anecdotes and honest conversation,” according to host Jody Avirgan, who is also a podcast host/producer at ESPN’s FiveThirtyEight. This week’s featured guests include Anna Sale, host of WNYC’s "Death, Sex and Money" podcast, and Jay Smooth of Fusion, Race Forward and WBAI. If you show up with a question to ask a stranger, you’ll answer a question first — to build trust — and then turn around and ask someone your question. Questions can be “silly, serious, whatever,” Avirgan says. The option to buy $8 presale tickets ends at 4 p.m. the day of the show, and if it’s not sold out, walk-up tickets can be purchased for cash or credit starting at 6:45 p.m. when the doors open.
These listings were compiled by DNAinfo's neighborhood reporters Danielle Tcholakian, Leslie Albrecht, Nikhita Venugopal, Jeanmarie Evelly, Carolina Pichardo, Emily Frost, Irene Plagianos, Camille Bautista and Rachel Holliday Smith.
