Have a surprising story? RISK! is coming...

RISK! is coming to town in February, and they’re seeking stories! Check out the message below:


My name is Brad and I am looking for storytellers in your area to pitch true stories from their lives for consideration to be in the RISK! live show that is coming to CINCINNATI on 2/8/19 @ LUDLOW GARAGE


(Please note: while RISK! like to offer a theme as a launching point for storytellers to brainstorm around, we are much more interested in great stories than we are stories that adhere closely to said theme. Alternate theme ideas might be "What was I thinking?" or "Secrets.")

I am reaching out to you because I found your contact information while looking up storytelling and comedy organizations in your area. I am hoping you can encourage the storytellers, comedians and performers in your community to pitch us their stories for the chance to perform in our live show.

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. RISK! has featured people like Janeane Garofalo, Lisa Lampanelli, Kevin Nealon, Margaret Cho, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, and regular folks from around the world, dropping the act and showing a side of themselves we’ve never seen before. The RISK! podcast gets over a million downloads each month. Slate.com called it “jaw-dropping, hysterically funny, and just plain touching.”

RISK! is not like other storytelling shows. It’s “where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public.” We encourage our storytellers to step out on a limb, be brutally candid and emotionally raw. This is an uncensored show where taboos are tackled and people talk about things they ordinarily might not share in mixed company, but might save for their therapist.

Send us your pitch by: 1/4/19 to be considered! pitches@risk-show.com

Please let the performers in your community know about this exciting opportunity as soon as you can, and let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you,
