Tourettes, Sailors, and Storytellers. Just another Memorial Day Weekend!

Hello, my name is Leslie, and I suffer from "Fleet Week Tourettes." Every year when Memorial Day Weekend rolls around, so do hundreds of handsome young Sailors and Marines. And no matter how hard I try, when I see one of those dapper gents, I blatantly point in their direction and repeatedly scream, "Fleet Week! Fleet Week!" It's meant as a compliment. As if I'm saying, "Thank you for your service to our country! And PS, you look smokin' hot in your uniform." Instead, it looks like I'm off my meds as I stand, point, salivate, and shout. So, to give the young men and women of our armed services a break from my mania, I took myself up to the KGB Bar to host another Sideshow Goshko! Thanks to all of the lovely storytellers and audience who came out. You are all amazeballs! And now, to recap:

MY SIDEKICK IS BACK! After a couple busy months of gigs and traveling, Dr. Michelle-Leona Godin was back in the sidekick buddy seat as our live accordion playing DJ. Welcome back, Doc!

The evening started off with the ridiculously talented and handsome Ed Gavagan sharing a tale of how he took Elizabeth Taylor (yes, THE Elizabeth Taylor! White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor!) on a shopping trip in Tangier. What did YOU do with your summer vacation?

Then we heard from Sharon "Mama" Spell who explained to us the absolute necessity of Scrubbing Bubbles. They're not just for show, all you bachelors out there.

Next was yours truly reading entries from my high school journal which proved that it's very difficult to date Christ and a future drug dealer at the same time.

And lastly, Brad Lawrence rounded up the evening with a tale of his equestrian prowess (or lack thereof). Prospect Park will never be the same.

Again, thanks so much to everyone who came out! Our next show is Friday, June 17th, 7pm at KGB Bar. Can't wait to tell you who's going to be on that one!
