For the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, check out Kevin Allison’s Risk! Live, this weekend at The University of Utah’s Post Theater. For fans of podcasts like This American Life and The Moth, Risk! Live is a recorded podcast event that gets nearly 1.5 million downloads every month from listeners around the world. On Saturday, September 17, prepare to go on an emotional roller coaster listening to 100% true and uncensored tales.
Allison admits it was nerve-wracking to start telling his own stories on stage. “The more I worried I was taking a risk with a story – because it was too emotional, too provocative, or just too nuts – the more the audience lit up,” he said.
Awarded the Excellence in Podcasting Award at NYC Podfest, Risk! Live has grown from small New York City apartment production to one of the most popular podcasts online today. Risk!Live has featured stories from several celebrities, including Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, and Margaret Cho. Everyday people are also encouraged to participate and showcase their talent by submitting their stories online.
Risk! Live is on Saturday, September 17 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased at http://www.ticketfly.com/venue/7375-the-post-theater/.
