#316: Kevin Allison on Owning Your Weirdness & Flaws

By Paul Gilmartin

The podcaster (RISK!) and sketch actor (The State) talks about learning to "own his weirdness".  From being a gay kid in a conservative town to being the black sheep in The State he has battled the paralysis and fear of not being perfect or even good enough.  He shares about his attempt at being a prostitute, the 12 year gap between The State ending and him starting Risk! and how he learned to find his authentic voice when he was at his lowest and how he still struggles to act and feel like a grown-up.   Follow Kevin on Twitter @TheKevinAllison Check out RISK! at www.risk-show.com or follow on Twitter @RISKshow Check out his classes www.thestorystudio.org For info on Paul's upcoming live podcasts in Oakland Feb 22-23 go to www.eastbayexpress.com/mental To become a monthly supporter of The Mental Illness Happy Hour go to www.patreon.com/mentalpod This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp online counseling.  To try a free week go to www.BetterHelp.com/mental  (you must be at least 18) This episode is sponsored by MadisonReed hair color kits.  For 10% off your first kit and free shipping go to www.Madison-Reed.com and use offer code HAPPY This episode is sponsored by MVMT Watches.  For 15% off plus free shipping and free returns go to www.MVMTWatches.com/mental This episode is sponsored by ZipRecruiter.  To post jobs for free go to www.ZipRecruiter.com/first
