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.

And We're Back

February 1st, 2013

Back from our winter hiatus, we are four years old now and we're mixing things up just for this occasion. Instead of one overall theme, each performer will hold forth on a different "how I learned..." topic. It's like a free-for-all. It's a cornucopia of How I Learned delights. 

There will also be special surprises, but I'm not sure what they are just yet. Anyway, anniversary presents are welcome and encouraged. We can't wait to see you.

Wednesday, February 27th
