Sideshow Goshko Storytelling Series

Award-winning storyteller Leslie Goshko (Huffington Post, Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion) invites some of NYC’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! Featuring guest storytellers from NPR’s This American Life, MTV, VH1, The New York Times, Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, and more!
