“How to Be Alone feels like peeling back your best friend’s skull and jumping into her brain. Lane is so open and funny and honest; I never want to be alone if it means I can’t have her with me. What a gift.” — Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of wow, no thank you
Lane Moore hosts the live streaming comedy show How To Be Alone on Twitch, which she calls “PeeWee’s Playhouse for lonely adults.” Fast Company described the show as, “Moore has both the whip-smart performance background of a seasoned comic and the rough-hewn wisdom of a self-help author, it’s a show that she’s uniquely suited to host.” The New York Times praised the show, calling it one of the best things to watch, and saying it is “specifically designed to keep both Moore and her audience connected and sane.” Time Out New York called it “one of the best shows to watch. “
