The Book Report Reading
Once upon a time you were in third grade and you had to give book reports and it was awesome. The Book Report promises to deliver exactly what it promises: reports on books by the people who’ve read them. Join Leigh Stein and Sasha Fletcher and assorted literate guests for an evening that will remind you of 3rd grade in the best possible way.
Leslie Goshko is the host and creator of the monthly storytelling series, Sideshow Goshko, which has been hailed as a Time Out New York and New York Times “Critics’ Pick”, and also noted as “a well-programmed night” by the New York Times. Sideshow Goshko has been featured on TruTV’s Impractical Jokers, NPR’s Snap Judgment, and in The New Yorker.
A Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion, and contributing blogger for the Huffington Post, Leslie’s stories and comedy writing have appeared on Sirius XM, WNYC, New York Metro “Funny Page,” and more. Her cabaret show “An Old-Fashioned Piano Party with Leslie Goshko” is heralded as a Time Out New York “Critic’s Pick,” and she served as the musical director for NY1 anchors Pat Kiernan and Jamie Stelter’s live show at 92Y, “Pat and Jamie’s NY.”
Leslie has been featured on two albums: the full-length album for kids’ band “Thunder and Sunshine” (of which she is a member) and on the GlasOnGlas EP “Silver and Violet.” She can regularly be seen behind the baby grand playing live piano karaoke at Sid Gold’s Request Room in NYC. And thanks to the support of many Internet voters, she performed with the cast of Hairspray on Broadway.
