RISK! is the show where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share. The hit RISK! podcast, which debuted in 2009, was created and is hosted by Kevin Allison (MTV’s The State), gets around a million downloads per month, was named one of Rolling Stone’s top podcasts of the year, and holds live shows in New York City and Los Angeles, as well as touring around the US, Canada and UK. RISK! has featured incredible true stories from Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho, Bowen Yang, Aisha Tyler, Marc Maron, Samantha Bee and regular folks from around the world, and the stories on RISK! can range from hilarious to terrifying to tear-jerking and everything in between. At this show, Kevin Allison will host 4 of Philly's best local performers as they tell amazing true stories from their lives. Slate calls RISK! "jaw-dropping, hilarious and just plain touching," and RISK! listeners routinely say the show has truly saved their lives. Come see what all the fuss is about as RISK! brings its live show to World Cafe Live for one night only.
