Back Story: So Kevin Allison came into San Francisco for SketchFest, and Dixie De La Tour told him that she was planning to do the theme 'Trigger Warning' for Folsom Street Fair because, after all, Folsom *is* the World's Largest Kink Event.
Kevin loved the theme, and is joining Bawdy for One Night Only. Expect some of the dirtiest and best stories of the year from both shows!

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. 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.”
- Kevin Allison is perhaps best known as a writing and performing member of The State on MTV. Popular sketches on the show starring Allison include "Taco Mail," "Mr. Magina", "Dreamboy", and "The Jew, the Italian, and the Redhead Gay." Allison came out as gay to the national media at 24 when The State began airing in 1994. Allison's most recent film and TV appearances include Reno 911!: Miami, The Ten, Wedding Daze, VH1's Best Week Ever and HBO's Flight of the Conchords. He writes for TV and for production companies like JibJab and Blue Man Group.

- Geoff Millard is a disabled queer Iraq combat veteran. He was one of the first Iraq combat veterans to stand up against the war and now works in San Francisco on veteran policy and community outreach for veteran services.
- Rachel Lark is a multi-instrumentalist rock star. Also known as “that girl with the toy piano” and “this crazy chick who plays drums backwards,” Lark has been stunning audiences throughout the bay with her special blend of unique arrangements and deadly songwriting.
