Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

A comedian, storyteller and founding member of the sketch troupe The State is bringing his deep and dark storytelling podcast to the Dallas Comedy House next month.

Kevin Allison will record a live episode of his popular Maximum Fun podcast Risk! at 10:30 p.m. Friday, February 7.

The podcast is a live storytelling show that features true tales from comedians and performers on subjects they may rather not share with the public. The show offers a unique and surprising mix of the happy and the sad, like Allison's story above his inability to let go of someone he thinks is perfect for him, or fellow State member Ben Garant's hilarious tale about his visit to a ghost town's hotel (that his wife should never, ever listen to).

If you have a story that you think might fit the bill for the live February show and don't mind spilling your guts on stage about it, you can submit your tale by emailing a 250-word story pitch or a 2-minute MP3 recording to pitches@risk-show.com.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
