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.”
We’re a celebration of podcasting in Chicago! Attendees get to be a fly on the wall and watch podcasts come to life in front of an audience.
This is your opportunity to take your favorite podcasts out of your ears and put them IRL, all while exploring new ones. The artists featured will be podcasters from the arts and entertainment world, recorded live on stage at unique venues in downtown Chicago.
This is a place where you can not only see your favorite shows, but be with your people.
