ALL TICKET SALES:
Mortified celebrates BACK TO SCHOOL month with a hilarious collection of embarrassing pieces in a salute to the most awkward month in a teenager's life!
To celebrate, we are proud to announce the Mortified premiere of our guest house band: THE CLEFDIVERS! In celebrating all things awkward, they are a nerdy, yet talented and occasionally sexual a capella group creating revisions, re-edits and remixes of 80's classics.
In Oakland we feature our regular house band: The Hip Hop Improv Comedy Masters: THE FREEZE!
THIS MONTH FEATURES:
-A young girl writes a letter to Santa, hoping to receive a headbanger dude for Christmas!
- A teen male's attempt at a "Lord Of The Flies" like script where the hero gets the girl, survives a deserted island, and discovers a goldmine of drugs!
-Witness the actual death obsessed horror films created by a 10 yr old!
- A teenage female travels abroad and decides to take home teenage boys as souvenirs!
ALL THIS & MORE @ YOUR COMEDY/SELF HELP ESCAPE: MORTIFIED!
MORTIFIED is:Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek
and featured frequently on This American Life, Mortified is a comic
excavation of teen angst artifacts (journals, poems, letters, lyrics,
home movies, schoolwork) as shared by their original authors - in front
of total strangers. As the largest and longest-running project of its
kind, our grassroots comedy collective has spent years sifting through
hundreds of otherwise forgotten notebooks while paving the way for a
strange new brand of entertainment.
After all, where else can you hear grown men and women confront
their past with firsthand tales of their first kiss, first puff, worst
prom, fights with mom, life at bible camp, worst hand job, best mall
job, and reasons they deserved to marry Bon Jovi?
Participants include a wide range of
people, from professional performers (comics, celebrities, singers) to total
amateurs (architects, ad execs, salesmen) all in the noble pursuit of personal
redemption through public humiliation. Share the shame.
