RISK! from the Linda, back at the Linda

Ethan has a question for you: Do y'all have hambu?

This past spring the RISK! storytelling show made a stop at the Linda. That episode has now been posted -- you can listen via stream or download. (Just a heads up: you probably don't want to listen to these stories in an office without headphones.)

The Albany episode features stories from Chrissy Swanson, Michael Oatman, Ethan Ullman, and Gregor Wynnyczuk -- and music from the Charlie Watts Riots. Video of Ethan's story is embedded above. Clips of the stories from Chrissy, Michael, and a bonus story from Kate Sweater are after the jump (we couldn't find the video for Gregor's story).

RISK! host Kevin Allison says in the intro to the ep that the Linda show was so successful they decided they had to come back. So they are -- September 8. Tickets are $17.

By the way: The Front Parlor storytelling series is back at The Ale House in Troy this coming Tuesday (August 14) -- the theme is "Heat." And the next Albany night is August 20 at the Olde English -- the theme is "Vacation (or Road Trip)."

(Thanks, Jessica!)


I was so thrilled when Kevin Allison came to me after the last show and mentioned he wanted to book in Albany again.

The line up for the September 8th show at The Linda features: Kevin Allison, Dave Hill, Ethan Ullman, Mandy Morpurgo and Brian Cirmo.

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...
