the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts
Hello Boston Storytellers
My name is Cyndi Freeman, some of you know me, I have told many a story in Boston, my home town.
I looking for storytellers in your area to pitch stories for the RISK! live show in Somerville MA on 5/15/16 @ Arts At The Armory, 7:30pm 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. Again, 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.
