Ep 68 - Rick Shapiro

February 25, 2014

Listen to the real life story of how a drug-addicted male prostitute survived NYC in the 1970's, to become a legendary poet / paid regular at the Comedy Store. 

I had the honor to sit down with Rick, at his local Denny's to record some of the most interesting stories I've ever heard in my life. 

Did you know there was a gay mafia, inside the italian mafia? And they hire hookers for gay italian mob luxury cruises. Rick was hired as one of those hookers. 

This is a story about how a straight guy, turned to gay hustling to survive, and sustain his heroine addiction.
