The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.



No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

YAY, BROOKLYN! I'm so pleased to have been able to bring How I Learned to my home turf. Where I live. In my very own Grey Gardens. Last night's one-nighter was, in a word, awesome, if I do say so myself. Maybe there should be a How I Learned one-off in all five boroughs! Next stop: Staten Island!


Just kidding. I'm not going there.


BUT, thanks to all of you who came out to the Brooklyn show. Thank you to JOHN SELLERS for his excellent show-and-tell and for coming out of the closet as a Wham! fan. Thanks to ANDY CHRISTIE and Artie Christie, and their dad, Mr. Christie, and all the people who died at Mr. Christie's rooming house. Thank you to MISS SARA SCHAEFER for loving Jesus and also having the devil a little bit inside of her simultaneously. Thanks to TOM SHILLUE for that Boston accent and for teaching us about fire safety. Thank you to MIKE ALBO for not succumbing to a freak accident in high school like the rest of them. And a special thank you to Miss Jinners for giving me the go-ahead to bring my show to Union Hall for a night.

Best one-night stand ever.

Stay tuned: Details for the next show How I Learned the Rules of Attraction: Stories About Online Dating -- back at the Happy Ending bar -- will be posted tomorrow the day after tomorrow. Right here.
