REAL TALK / KIP TALK is a series of live talk shows about the state of contemporary performance in New York City, hosted by Kippy Winston, media mogul, internet sensation, and citizen of the world. Since Kippy’s weblog took flight in 2008, Kippy’s larger-than-life persona and cottage industry empire has grown to encompass Kippy Winston Media, a boutique PR firm servicing all things theatrical; The Radish, a semi-autumnal gossip rag; Just Ask Kippy, a brief yet potent advice column; and an active social media presence. Formatted like a talk show but with room for debate, REAL TALK / KIP TALK blurs the lines between art and life and challenges participants of all stripes and creeds to engage in real talk about our starry performance landscape.
Kippy Winston’s web log began in 2008, but her peripatetic life started long, long ago. A citizen of the world, Kippy is not only a tastemaker, but also a mover and shaker and an ardent supporter of the performing arts, or quite simply “the field.” Linguist and lover of culture, Kippy’s musings on art, life, and la cultura take on unique forms all their own. She is an Andy Rooney of the PoMo age, a Gadfly of the Gilded era, a Muckraker with the Mostess. Journalism meets hedonism in Winston’s word play(s). [wink!] “Hey world. Here I am. Kippy Winston and loving life.”
“She’s this generation’s answer to Amy Sedaris: frank, weird and immensely likable.” – Time Out NY
Kippy’s work has been seen / experienced at PRELUDE 2013 ad 2014 with her gossip rag The Radish.
