  • High Noon Saloon 701 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Billed as "the show where people tell true stories they never thought they'd dare to share in public," Kevin Allison's Risk! podcast has spent the better part of a decade carving out a pleasantly dirty place all its own in an overcrowded landscape of storytelling shows. Allison, who got his start on MTV's 1990s sketch show The State, is all about exploring and embracing the deepest darkest nooks and crannies of human experience, from the pleasurable and profound to the occasional downer that resonates through its relatable sadness. Mostly, though, it's just some lightly polished elaborate experiential admissions that are not fit for "polite" (i.e boring) company. Think of it as The Moth: After Dark, if you want. The theme for this live recording at the High Noon is "Huge," so those with hair-trigger gag reflexes may want to sit it out. —Chris Lay
