RISK! is a live show and podcast “where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public” hosted by Kevin Allison, of the legendary TV sketch comedy troupe The State. The award-winning live show happens monthly in New York and Los Angeles. It’s featured people like Janeane Garofalo, Lisa Lampanelli, Kevin Nealon, Margaret Cho, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, Lili Taylor, Rachel Dratch, Andy Borowitz and more, dropping the act and showing a side of themselves we’ve never seen before. The weekly podcast gets around a million downloads each month. Slate.com called it “jaw-dropping, hysterically funny, and just plain touching.”

This Friday, September 30th the stories will be told at the Broadberry.

RISK!’s live storytelling show is coming to Richmond! Our theme for the night is “Juicy” Stories presented by Kevin Allison and more TBA!

Although the list of speakers hasn’t been shared we’ve got some information that Raymond Christian will be part of the show. Ray grew up in Church Hill in the 1960s/1970s and has amazing stories to tell. You can check out a bit of Ray on CHPN and at What’s Ray Sayin.
