Many years ago, back when I lived in Boston, MA, I stood up in front of friends and strangers to read embarrassing teenage poetry as part of the Mortified Live Show. After moving to Los Angeles, I hit the stage again so I could mortify myself west-coast style. It's now been ten years. My awful love poems have since been published in Mortified: Love is a Battlefield, and I'm about to return to the stage in Chicago on February 10th to humiliate myself for my new city of residence.
Mortified stars everyday people reading aloud their most embarrassing, pathetic and private teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes… in front of total strangers. Witness “personal redemption through public humiliation” in a refreshing show that is equal parts comedic, cathartic and voyeuristic. The largest and longest running project of its kind featuring a cast of Chicago’s bravest souls. Share the shame.
Performers include Savannah Cannistraro, Ryan McQueen, Nicole Novak, Morgan Phillips-Spotts, and Brian James Polak! Hosted by Shay DeGrandis. Musical Guest Cover Stories with The Nerdologues!
