I Wish Someone Told Me: Created and Performed by Asher Novek


"I Wish Someone Told Me" is a storytelling show about why we move to, and more importantly, why we stay in New York City. This show celebrate's Asher's 10th year anniversary of moving to New York City; after 11 apartments, 15 jobs, and some memorable moments on the subway, he's still left wondering how someone earns the title of being a "New Yorker."

Asher is a freelance producer, storyteller, and community activist. He is finishing his Master’s degree in International Communications and Accessibility at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study. His thesis, "HeartGov" ( aims to better connect local government and communities through text messages. He produces a monthly storytelling show, "So What Happened Was" at Freddy's Bar in Park Slope, and has appeared on podcasts such as "Abe Lincoln's Top Hat" and "Can't Make This Up!".
