The award-winning live show happens monthly in New York and Los Angeles. It’s featured people like Janeane Garofalo, Lisa Lampanelli, Kevin Nealon, Margaret Cho, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, Lili Taylor, Rachel Dratch, Andy Borowitz and more, dropping the act and showing a side of themselves we’ve never seen before. The weekly podcast gets hundreds of thousands of downloads each month. Slate.com called it “jaw-dropping, hysterically funny, and just plain touching.”

RISK! is thrilled to announce that our good friend Rich Wexler, the creator of the wildly popular Vintage Annals Archive on Instagram — a magical mystery tour of the most weirdly wonderful culture of the past — has just debuted a podcast with that same passion for the off-the-beaten path sides of pop culture. Along with his creative partner Dr. Thunder, Rich interviews fascinating cultural figures (like none other than Kevin Allison on the 9/24/22 episode) so we hope all RISK! fans subscribe to the Vintage Annals Archive Podcast for more surprises.
