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.



EVERYONE'S GOING TO BE FINE

It is with hearts full of whatever Oprah's calling it, that we have decided to tell you that we broke up, called stuff quits, divorced our friends, consciously uncoupled, and did other life / relationship things that were really hard. Please respect our privacy during this difficult time we're having in public and on Instagram. Love, Us

OPHIRA EISENBERG is the host of NPR's Ask Me Another, and the author of the memoir Screw Everyone, which was recently optioned for a feature film. She is also a master storyteller and a regular host at The Moth, and has performed on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and many other places. Currently, she can be seen everywhere.


MARA WILSON is a writer, playwright, former child actor, and the creator and host of the show What Are You Afraid Of?, which will be live at Joe's Pub at The Public Theater on May 4th. Her film appearances include Mrs. DoubtfireMatilda. You will never see her on Dancing with the Stars, so stop asking.


MATT KOFF is a comedian and staff writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He has also written for IFC's The Onion News Network and Comedy Central's Tosh.O. He can be seen regularly at The UCB Theater, Comic Strip, and Littlefield. He lives in Brooklyn without a wife or kids. Not even a pet. Pretty sad stuff.


SARAH KELLY's prodigious career began in 1983 when she formed The Executioners, a brother/sister team known for their reenactments of popular music videos. In 2005, after coming to the realization that she was lazy and had a lot of feelings inside her heart, she began living her life by the philosophy of "I don't know." She performs stand-up all over New York City in places that she won't tell any of her friends about beforehand.

JOE BERKOWITZ is a staff writer at Fast Company. He has also written for The Awl, Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, and other publications. 



Here's the event on Facebook for your totally optional RSVP'ing pleasure. (But you know what? If you RSVP 'yes,' even if you can't go, it makes us look good. No presh, though.)
