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.

JOSH HOMER has always been an outsider—from growing up in an interracial household to being raised a Jehovah's Witness, he was on the outside of the mainstream, looking in. Now, as an adult, Josh’s performances take his unordinary experiences and make them relatable through the universal language of human emotion. Josh has been performing stand-up comedy for 10 years in New York, where he has received several accolades including winning Best Emerging Comedian in the New York Underground Comedy Festival. He has also been featured on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham and Travel Channel's Food Palaces.


GINNY LEISE is an actor, comedian and writer. She is the co-producer and co-host of The Shame Game: A Storytelling Gameshow. When she isn't touring the country with the Awkward Sex and the City tour, she can be seen performing all over New York. The most expedient places to stalk her on the internet are @ginnyleise and ginnyleise.com.


DOOGIE HORNER is a comedian, writer, artist, and author of Some Very Interesting Cats Perhaps You Weren't Aware Of (Workman),100 Ghosts (Quirk Books), and Everything Explained Through Flowcharts (HarperCollins). His art and writing have appeared in Wired, McSweeney's, Fast Company, Boing Boing, the Believer, the London Times, the Sun, and other publications. His comedy achieved national attention when a video of him taming a hostile crowd on America's Got Talent became a viral sensation.
