Sideshow Goshko

Award-winning storyteller Leslie Goshko (Huffington Post, Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion) hosts this monthly storytelling show, which invariably follows the same format. Goshko invites three top writers and storytellers to join her in sharing true, bizarre tales about their lives for ten minutes apiece. Four challenging trivia questions are asked, and one lucky audience member will receive a portion of “Sideshow Sauce” (aka a delectable bottle of Trader Joe’s vino). This particular evening’s line-up will include stories from Ryan Britt (The New York Times, Gotham Writers’ Workshop), David Crabb (The Moth,Bad Kid), and Gail Thomas (Funny or Die, Tribeca Film Festival).

Always with the same format: four storytellers each receive 10 minutes of performance time, with Goshko generously going third to settle the crowd after intermission. Also, four supremely difficult trivia questions are asked and Goshko always gives away a bottle of Sideshow Sauce (aka Three Buck Chuck wine from Trader Joe’s).
