Hosted by: Shannan Hunt, Amanda Lynn Deal, Jono G, Shain Brenden

Along the way we have to do crazy actions that are determined by a random card pull like “Commit a random act of kindness”, or “Tell a stranger a joke”- and YOU (our audience) get to see all of this from the comfort of Kelly's Olympian because of the magic of technology (livestream)! Pre walk-stand up show and post walk performer panel ties everything together. Every show is wackier and wilder than the next! It’s like a mystical Billy On The Street.

Truth or Dare Live

Hosted by: Emma Jonas

Truth or Dare Live is a comedy game show where comics reveal the truth and the audience dictates the dares. Six comedians write down a truth and put it in the bucket, then perform standup for ten minutes each. Audience members write down dares and submit them. After each set, the host pulls a truth from the bucket and the comic who just performed must guess whose it is. If they guess correctly, the other comic must do a dare. If they guess wrong, they must do a dare. If it's their own truth, they must admit to it and do a dare.
