It's not a track suit!

Track suits, hoodies, and tube socks...these are things I love. Most days I am wearing one if not all of these things. So, in a rare glimpse, I thought I would share some photographic evidence of me performing in something other than fleece.

Thanks to Anna Rubanova for the photos and to Margot Leitman and Giulia Rozzi for having me on their amazing show, Stripped Stories at UCB Theater. It was a great night all-around!

Tax Day Just Got HILARIOUS!

The IRS may not be funny, but the lineup we have for our April 15th "Sideshow Goshko" IS! Join us at the legendary KGB Bar (named "Best Literary Venue in NY" by NY Magazine) for a night of storytelling, trivia, and all-around good times.

Award-winning storyteller Leslie Goshko (Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion, NY Fringe Excellence Award, Sirius XM), invites some of NY’s top writers and storytellers to share true, bizarre tales about their lives. There’s live accordion music, a challenging trivia game, and a free wine giveaway where one lucky audience member will walk away with their very own bottle of Sideshow Sauce! Tonight’s stellar lineup includes stories from:

John Flynn (ECNY Award nominee "Best Storyteller", UCB Theater)

Tracy Rowland (Emmy Award-winning writer/producer, The Moth)

David Crabb (Ask Me Stories, Risk!)

"Where everybody knows your naaaaame..."

Getting into elevator with man who lives in my building, I press his floor number for him.

Man: Ah, thanks. You just move in?
Me: No. We've lived here for about three years.

Man: Oh...really?

Me: Yes, you and I have actually had this conversation before.


Me: Twice.

Man: ...Oh. 

Aaaaaaaand Scene.
