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.

KARA BULLER 
is a writer for Bust Magazine, and her biting comedy has snatched up prizes from Chicago to New York and been seen as far west as Maui and as far sad as a Midwestern memorial service. She has been deemed "very smart, very funny" by David Letterman's chief talent booker, as well as "very funny" by the Chicago Reader. Kara is a graduate of Chicago's legendary Second City. There Kara performed her one-woman show Cowboy Crushes, Prank Calls and the Biblette, which, according to the Chicago Reader, was "full of hilarious insights." Kara is equipped with an attitude of gratitude and is raring to go.
