Leslie Goshko

[TOP PICK] [$] 5:00 pm ($20, which includes 1 glass of champaign; reservations highly recommended by calling 212.989.9319): Four funny people tell amazing stories. Three of the tales are absolutely true…but one of them is a pack of lies. The audience then asks questions to try and identify the fibber—and everyone who does gets a free t-shirt! This evening’s yarn-spinners are Ophira Eisenberg (brilliant storyteller and host of The Liar Show TV pilot; Comedy Central, VH1, Showtime), Leslie Goshko (Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion, host of Sideshow Goshko), Peter Aguero (Conan O’Brien), and Colin Dempsey (ComedyLand). Come to the West Village’sCornelia Street Cafe (29 Cornelia Street) and let host Andy Christie (The New York Times, Moth GrandSlam Champion) attempt to mislead you at this special year-end edition of The Liar Show
