Mortified: Live! Tonight!
Remember in high school when you had a crush on that guy a few grades older than you and you couldn't stop thinking about him or telling your friends about how you were totally going to go to prom together, and fall in love, and go to the same college, and live happily ever after- if only he knew who you were? What about in ninth grade when you dressed up as a “space chick” for Halloween- but everyone thought you were a hooker? Maybe it was the time in junior high that you were chosen to MC a pep rally- in front of the whole school (OMG so exciting!) only to find out afterwards that you had really bad pit stains the whole time- and EVERYONE saw! Because all of us had absolutely horrendous experiences as adolescents (some of which we may still be living down) Dave Nadelberg, author of Mortified: Real Words, Real People, Real Pathetic and the upcoming Mortified 2: Love is a Battlefield, has created a forum for men and women all across the country to “share in the shame” as they recount horrifying moments from adolescence before a live audience in Mortified: Live.
Tonight Mortified: Live comes to L.A. For Mortified AngstGiving, a national, month-long series of Mortified comedy events during which all performances will be used to bring awareness and financial resources to youth-oriented charities. The last time LAist went to see Mortified was this summer, and we had an embarrassingly good time!
