RUSSIAN ROULETTE is our high stakes, high-risk live storytelling show where six seasoned performers spin a giant game show wheel filled with mystery prompts. Storytellers have just 5 minutes to prepare and tell a true 5-minute story based on the prompt they land on — the audience votes for the winner!

This show features DAN KENNEDY Host of The Peabody Award-Winning MOTH RADIO HOUR (50 million downloads a year!), and TWO past winners, all telling compelling funny/poignant/gross/sexy/mysterious on-the-spot stories. The audience votes for a winner at the end of the night. The winner also draws an audience winner — both get $350+ of booty from our sponsors and partners!
