Richard Cardillo

Richard CardilloRichard Cardillo is a 25 year resident of the Lower East Side and has been an educator for over three decades on two continents and in three 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 five-time Moth StorySLAM winner and has also participated in three Moth GrandSLAMS . He’s performed at Surprise! Stories Storytelling Game Show, Friday Night Stories, Mostly True Things, Bodega Monthly Storytelling Show, Story Collider, Taboo Tales, 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.
