Blaise Allysen Kearsley's How I Learned series features writers, storytellers, comedians, bloggers, and other raconteurs holding forth on lessons learned, unlearned, relearned, or in progress. Called "hip" and "energetic," and named one of the best shows of its kind by Time Out New York.
Featured as part of the Gotham Storytelling Festival:
Folk music had the 60s in NYC, punk and performance art owned the 70s and 80s, and improv and alternative comedy ruled the 90s and 00s. Today... it's live storytelling. Dozens of story shows take place at big and small theaters around the city, with new ones popping up every month. Horse Trade Theater Group (Heidi Grumelot, Artistic Director, Erez Ziv, Managing Director) is proud to present the First Annual Gotham Storytelling Festival; collecting some of the best shows curated and produced by Horse Trade Artistic Director Heidi Grumelot and resident hosts Peter Aguero, Seth Lind and Adam Wade.
