Since 2009, How I Learned has featured some of the best live storytelling, comedy, and readings in New York City. It all happens a couple of times a year, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you'll have the best night of you life on those nights, repeatedly.

Well, it happened. We had our first-ever STORYTELLING/READING SLAM last night and I think it's safe to say it was super-successful.

Thank you to everyone who came out, everyone who shared a story -- Mikila, Eli, Michele, Anita, Jefferson, and Tori -- and thank you so much to those of you who didn't get picked in the lottery; I hope I've managed to name you all here:

Abigial Knoff
Lisa Kirchner
Lori B.
Lana Kal
Eytan Kurland
Stephanie Porto
Matt Koff
Ethan Stanislawski
Jennifer Glick
Xan Price
Laralu Smith
Kerri Doherty
Jack T. Tumult
Jenny Rubin


HUGE thanks, also, to Andy Ross and Lyra Smith who were fantastic co-hosts, and to Ted Travelstead and Michael Sharkey for being great judges. I really, really hope to do this again.

Meanwhile, come see the next How I Learned show on Wednesday, July 25th at Happy Ending. It's going to be a great show. Details here...
