Tip of the Hat to our Jan 17th “Hat” Storytellers

Our first Lost and Found Show (Hats) was a hit!  What a fantastic way to start the series.

A big tip of the hat to our storytellers…

Michele Carlo

Michele Carlo (www.michelecarlo.com) wowed readers with a story of her days as Carmen Mofongo. And look at that hat…

Michele is the author of the memoir Fish Out Of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks (Citadel 2010), which began as stories told at the MOTH. A solo show adaptation of Fish Out of Agua will appear at the 20th Annual L.A. Women’s Theater Festival in March 2013.

Mike Brown

Mike Brown (www.ohthatmikebrown.com) shared about his experience wearing several hats through his life, both real and metaphorical, and the ways they have all caused him trouble. Bottom line:  never touch a gangster in a pizza parlor. Just plain good advice.

Mike Brown is a standup comic and writer based in New York. In 2012, He was named one of Rooftop Comedy’s Comics to Watch, Caroline’s Best of New Talent and a semi-finalist in NY Funniest Stand Up competition presented by JetBlue. His material is based on growing up in New York City and is accessible to many audiences ranging from corporate (NAACP, NYSC) to collegiate (Penn State, SUNY Albany, CUNY City, Hofstra University).

Andrew Lloyd-JonesImage

Andrew (www.liarsleaguenyc.com) told a twisted little story that involved burying a cat named Curious George. It only got stranger from there…

Andrew was born in London, England and grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. He won the Fish Prize with his story “Feathers and Cigarettes”, and his writing has featured in the Tales of the Decongested anthologies, in the Canongate collection Original Sins and in the Pulp.net anthology Down the Angel. He is a founder of the original Liars’ League, one of London’s most successful literary evenings, showcasing emerging short story writers from around the world. Andrew now lives and writes in New York.

Mike Amato

Storyteller, Director, and Actor Mike Amato (mike-amato.com) offered up a retelling of one of our favorite 1940s NYC stories from writer John McNulty. He even played the “Taxi Driver” theme music to add that extra bit of noir. And yet another fine looking hat…

Mike Zimbouski

Mike Zimbouski (okdatapad.wordpress.com) provided narration to a classic story by demented author Emilio Razorquist, an old friend of the Lost and Found Show family. All of us here admire Mr. Zimouski’s bravery at retelling such a bizarre children’s story. Oh, that Inquisitive Joe and his Inquisitive Psychopathic Pals…

Thank you to everyone that attended!  NEXT UP:  Lost and Found’s “Underwear” Show, Thursday February 21st!
