The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comics, and other raconteurs holding forth on lessons learned, unlearned, relearned or in progress. The How I Learned Series happens once a month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.

Hot on the heels of last night's awesome show, How I Learned returns to BROOKLYN for one special night (again) at UNION HALLTuesday, 5/15. Can't wait to see you there. Right near my house.
