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.

Goodnight, Taylor

I'm heartbroken that my brilliant friend and How I Learned alum – an actor, comedian, writer, director, painter, and self-described "That Guy" – Taylor Negron, passed away on Saturday. On the upside, he's trending. He'd find that hilarious.

How I Learned's anniversary show on Wednesday, January 28th at 8PM at Union Hall will open its 6th season with not only five great storytellers – Adam Wilson, Alex Gallafent, Jen Snow, Joel Kim Booster, and Cammi Climaco – but also a fittingly funny and heartful tribute to Taylor. Advance tickets ($6) are on sale now.

So save the date. And as Taylor wrote recently, "Find the people you care for and let them know." xo Blaise

P.S. Here's the event on Facebook.
