Wheeeeeere's Leslie?!...

Whew! It's been a crazy couple of weeks over here, but it's all the "good" kind of crazy. And there's even more fun stuff coming up.

I'd love to see your good-looking mugs in person, which can happen at any or all of the following:


Thursday, April 23rd, 7pm
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. There’s 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:

Sam Dingman (Moth Grand Slam Champion, Risk!)

Jenny Rubin (author New York Walk, The Jenny Rubin Show)

Tom Cowell (Comedy Central, The Village Voice)

Steve Zimmer (Moth GrandSlam Champion)

* Time Out NY “Critics’ Pick”
* NY Daily News “Editor’s Pick”
* “a well-programmed night” - The New York Times

Friday, April 24th, 9:30pm
Joe's Pub at the Public, $25
I am beyond thrilled to be returning to Joe's Pub with the fantastic and long-running Loser's Lounge as they present their tribute to the great Joni Mitchell! Be sure to grab your tickets as this show usually sells out. Helmed by the wonderful Joe McGinty.

Tuesday, April 28th, 8pm
Union Hall, Brooklyn, $8
I'm excited to be the band leader for the debut of Late Night Disaster at Union Hall! Late Night Disaster is a variety show dressed up like a traditional late night talk show helmed by pro wrestler and side show performer Rob Blatt ("The internet's favorite person" -Uproxx). Late Night Disaster takes musical guests, comedians, the weirdos of NYC, podcasters, burlesque performers, and bad ideas into a shaker and mixes them with whiskey served over ice for a ridiculous cocktail of fun. Have you ever seen John Turturro reading from the Mega Man 2 novelization dressed like a hot dog? We haven't, but we're gonna see if he's interested.

Wednesday, April 29th, 8pm
Le Poisson Rouge, $15
"Yum's The Word" is the only show that blends old-school fun with modern-day storytelling.

Join host, Robin Gelfenbien, and some of NYC's best storytellers, comedians and writers every month for funny true stories, Mad Libs, nostalgic candy and Robin's homemade ice cream cakes.

Thursday, April 30th, 8pm
Sidewalk Cafe, "2-something" minimum
Bill Chambers hosts this brand new night of comedy, storytelling, and more at the Sidewalk Cafe!

And don't forget to RSVP for May's "An Old-Fashioned Piano Party with Leslie Goshko!" Simply call the cafe at 212-989-9319, press 0, and reserve your seats!
