Moth Grand Slam champs Giulia Rozzi and Margot Leitman, plus musical guest Jessica Delfino, are coming to town with Stripped Stories – a themed night of hilarious sex stories that has been playing monthly to sold-out audiences since it first began in January 2007 at the Upright Citzens Brigade in NYC. Combined, the two have resumes which include appearances on NBC, ABC, Vh1, Mtv, Comedy Central, AMC, ESPN, CNN, E!, and features in Glamour and Playgirl Magazine. With rave reviews from Time Out NY, The Village Voice, Nerve.com and many others, Stripped Stories has become a must see comedy event. The show has been honored with an ECNY nomination for Best Variety Show and was selected to be part of the prestigious NY Comedy Festival. Each show features a comedian, a non-comedian, and a musical act revealing hysterically honest stories about their sex lives plus an interactive jaw-dropping game of “never-have-I-ever” and an audience interview. Nov 11 will also feature SpeakeasyDC storytellers Corey Quinlan Taylor and Juliet Hutchings. Nov 12 will feature John Kevin Boggs and Danny Harris.
Giulia Rozzi is a NYC based writer, comedian, actress and producer raised in Boston by two adorable Italian immigrants. Her very personal, blunt, and animated comedy has earned her the honor of being named a Moth GrandSLAM champion, one of the Frisky’s ”Top 15 Comediennes You Should Be Laughing At” and a two-time ECNY Best Female Stand Up nominee. She’s appeared on MTV, Vh1, Italian MTV, CNN and in her original web series themessage-board.com . She co-hosts/created the highly acclaimed humorous sex-themed storytelling show (and now also a podcast) Stripped Stories and the bi-monthly Brooklyn based comedy show Dive Comedy. She has written for Playgirl, BUST, Glamour, XOJane.com, TheGLOC.net, NY Press, Lifetimetv.com, Lemondr
Margot Leitman is the creator and head instructor of the Comedian Storytelling training program at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre in both New York and Los Angeles. She is an adjunct instructor at the San Francisco Comedy College, and worked in Perth, Australia this winter teaching a month long intensive through the Blue Room Theatre Company. She has taught corporately through Thompson Reuters, Tata Beverages Worldwide, Universal McCann, and Intercontinental Hotel Group. This fall she will teaching workshops at both the ALL FOR ONE Theatre Festival in NY, and the First Person Arts Festival in Philadelphia.
Margot’s off beat, brutally honest, fearless comedy has earned her the title of Moth Grandslam Champion, two ECNY nominations for “Best Female Standup,” and an additional nomination for “Best Storyteller.” However, Margot’s most prized accomplishment remains winning $1664 on “The Price is Right.”
Margot appeared regularly as various characters, including the cult favorite Gynoblast on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” in addition to appearances on VH1′s Best Week Ever, Jimmy Kimmel Live, ESPN’s “Cheap Seats,” AMC, the Style Network, E!, Comedy Central, MTV and NBC Broadband.

She has appeared in about a dozen commercials including Lowe’s Hardware, Bertolli Frozen Dinners , and Mohegan Sun Casino.

A three time Moth Storyslam winner, Margot has been featured in Glamour Magazine, and the books “Fifty Dates Worse Than Yours” and “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Jokes.

She has just completed her first book, about being the gigantic weird girl growing up on the Jersey Shore.
Jessica Delfino is a NYC based comedian, musician, performer and writer who plays many instruments ranging from the flying V ukulele to the rape whistle. She grew up in Damariscotta, Maine and went to art school in Philadelphia where she studied animation. Jessica decided to try stand-up comedy when a comedian she met said females couldn?t do comedy. Soon after, she moved to NYC, started playing chess a lot and performing at comedy clubs and on any stage she could find. That morphed into playing music into the subway. She began bringing her guitar on stage and making videos which led to getting publicly denounced by the Catholic League, and banned by Youtube, and then unbanned. She’s performed on ABC?s ?Good Morning America?, The Sundance Channel, Fox News? ?Red Eye?, in the Reading & Leeds Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Fest, Dublin Comedy Festival, London?s Soho Theatre and has had a whole ton of fun and adventures. It hasn?t all been rainbows and unicorns, but even the shitty parts are probably better than your job.
