In this class, Kevin Allison (founder of The Story Studio and RISK! and member of The State) will teach you the skills to wow a crowd with your story.

You’ll learn how to select compelling story topics, use the 5 Beat structure to build suspense, bring vivid dramatic action to life with sensory details, and unpack the larger thematic meanings of your narrative. This class encourages participation: everyone will be given the opportunity to apply storytelling techniques to one of their own stories. 

A few students will be given the opportunity to share aspects of their story live on stage, and receive criticism so that we all can learn together.

Each participant will leave with a 4-to-6 minute story that builds upon the principles taught during the class.

Date: Wednesday, September 18 6:00pm - 8:00pm Location: Unexpected Productions’ Market Theater, 1428 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101 https://goo.gl/maps/2Um6WUNx8L42Cost: $80Prerequisite: NoneAges: 18+Teacher Bio:

Kevin Allison is the host and creator of the wildly popular podcast, RISK!, where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public. After starting from scratch in Kevin’s bedroom in 2009, RISK! has grown to have over one million downloads per month and has featured stories too uncensored to be played on public radio from Margaret Cho, Trevor Noah, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman and regular folks from around the world. In 2018, RISK! released its first book through Hachette Books, called RISK! True Stories People Never Thought They’d Dare to Share, edited by Kevin, to critical acclaim. Kevin is also a member of the legendary sketch comedy group The State, whose 90’s MTV show remains a cult classic. In 2011, he created a storytelling school called The Story Studio, where he teaches performers and professionals from all fields how to wow a crowd with their own true stories.
