Hailed a 'cultural phenomenon' by Newsweek and celebrated by This American Life, Entertainment Weekly, Time, Wired, The AV Club, The Today Show (twice), and beyond, Mortified celebrates stories revealed through the strange and extraordinary things we created as kids.
Part story telling, part docu-comedy, part confession. Mortified invites participants to share embarrassing extracts from their teenage diaries live on stage. Witness adults reliving the most mortifying episodes and attitudes of their adolescence. Hear grown men and women confront their past with tales of their first kiss, first puff, worst date, fights with mom, experiments with sex, conflicts with the nature of true love and reasons they are eternally connected to John Lennon!
This show is extraordinarily popular in America. A version of the show runs in virtually every major American city several times a year.
The show is also the subject of a documentary called 'Mortified Nation' (available on Netflix)
After a sold out first show in February Mortified London return in July with a brand new cabal of cringe inducing reminiscences.
'Mortified Nation is genuinely entertaining, but also subversively profound and surprisingly moving.' - Washington Post
'Unbearably intimate... completely funny!' - The AV Club
