Denise McCormack
Denise McCormack is a teller of all types of tales---for a purpose. Recently committed to telling it like it is and was - with true stories about growing up in NJ as a Polish, white girl - she offers vantages of the multi-faceted historical and familial contexts that surrounded and shaped them. They strike a nerve.

McCormack will be among the featured artists in the 2019 National Storytelling Network Summit Performers Showcase, as well as host of an opening night story swap, and is the annual facilitator of the traditional NJ Festival Story Slam. Among her affiliations are: NJ state liaison for the National Storytelling Network, co-chair of the NJ Jersey Storytelling Festival, and president of Patchwork: A Storytelling Guild, as well as member of the board of the Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild, and member of other various and related organizations.

Cory Kahaney
Cory Kahaney has been busy. She recently appeared The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, was a hit on the 2016 season of America’s Got Talent and was featured in Catskills on Broadway. Cory has been seen on The Late Show with David Letterman and performed a record 7 times on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Cory is also a regular on The View, Fox & Friends and The Moms.

Ms. Kahaney was named Best Comedian in NYC by Backstage and Best female comedian NYC by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets. And even though she’s had specials on Comedy Central and HBO, her parents still wish she married a doctor!

Leslie Goshko

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 in NYC behind the baby grand playing live piano karaoke at Sid Gold's Request Room and thanks to the support of many Internet voters, she performed with the cast of Hairspray on Broadway.

Mike Baldwin

Mike Baldwin as "THE LEGENDARY WID" is "one of the funniest people to ever come from New Jersey."

He is also the subject of an award-winning documentary film entitled, ..WID,.. by Jason Ferraro and Brian Galla. From his sold-out shows at New York's The Bottom Line in the early 80s to his frequent TV appearances ever since THE LEGENDARY WID has always been an audience favorite. WID uses props and puns to hilarious effect. He has hosted TV shows such as VH-1..s ..Top 20 Countdown,.. and appeared on ..Stand-Up Spotlight... He has appeared on ..Make Me Laugh.. on Comedy Central and ..Comedy On The Road.. and ..Caroline..s Comedy Hour.. on A & E,.The ABC Comedy Club Special.. and ..30 Seconds To Fame,.. on FOX.
