Richard Cardillo is a 25 year resident of the Lower East Side and been an educator for over three decades on two continents and in two languages. He’s instructed on all levels from preschool to graduate programs, considering himself still more of a learner than a teacher….but always a storyteller! Rich is a four-time Moth StorySLAM winner and has also participated in three Moth GrandSLAMS . He’s also performed at Surprise! Stories Storytelling Game Show, Friday Night Stories, Mostly True Things, Story Collider, and Big Irv’s Brand New Storytelling Show. Rich is a passionate bread baker and, yes, has gone to that quirky (scary?) place of naming his 16-year-old sourdough starter. He tries to bake up a new story with every loaf that emerges from his tiny apartment oven.

Lily White’s writing has appeared in Brevity, Caffeine Press, The Bennington Review, The Southampton Review, and the NY Times. She lives in Brooklyn and plays the saxophone.

Joanne Solomon is a writer, aerialist, and comedian in New York City. She can bee seen about town on the Moth Main Stage, the Liar Show, and No Holds Barred at Dixon Place. Her one woman show, “Hurtling Towards Earth”, about her experience as a performer in the off Broadway show De La Guarda will open in New York in the Spring. She also teaches English as a second Language at NYU. She spends many hours with her two year old son Griffin talking about the comfort levels of the Three Little Bears’s Chairs. Many Thanks to Lennie and Harper for Introducing Joanne to the incredibly prolific and generous of spirit, Emily Ray Reese.
