Bond, James Bond

Had a shaken-not-stirred martini good time paying tribute to James Bond on Friday's Loser's Lounge show at Joe's Pub at The Public! Also, my mom is still learning how to hold the camera sideways. She's getting there...
Thanks to Joe McGinty and the whole Loser's Lounge gang for a fantastic time!

A Huge Piano Party "Thank You!"

This is me blowing kisses to everyone who came out to Saturday's An Old-Fashioned Piano Party w/Leslie Goshko. What an AMAZING (and sold-out) crowd!!! You guys were so fun and a joy to entertain. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And thanks also to everyone who made it out to Sideshow Goshko and Loser's Lounge. It's been an amazing, whirlwind week and my mom had a blast. In her words, "You're walking around like a normal person, but I know you're a super star." Thanks for making me look good, NY! Xo

Guys, it's happening again. My mom is coming to visit! We'll be tag-teaming a story because, well, there's two sides to every tale ;) Here's the gist...

Award-winning storyteller Leslie Goshko (Huffington Post, Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion) invites some of NY’s top writers and storytellers to share true, bizarre tales about their lives.

Tonight’s stellar lineup includes stories from:

Martin Dockery (Intl. Fringe Superstar!)

Leona Godin (Newton Literary, writer/producer The Spectator and the Blind Man)

Gail Thomas (Law & Order SVU, voiceover artist Beavis and Butthead)
