Risk! started out as a podcast during which people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share. Founded in 2009 by Kevin Allison of MTV’s legendary sketch comedy show “The State,” it’s featured incredible tales from Sarah Silverman, Kevin Nealon, Dan Savage, Margaret Cho and many other celebrities and ordinary folks alike.

The live show started touring the country to showcase the talent of regional storytellers. In Austin, these will be Jimmy Benet, Gail Thomas, Aaron Brooks and Brooke Lancaster.

Details: 8 p.m. Friday. $20. 719 Congress Ave. austintheatre.org.
