We’re big fans of Mortified here at CultureMob. Well, OK, I’m a big fan of Mortifiedâ€”I probably shouldn’t speak for all my fellow bloggers. But you can trust me, right? For those not in the know, Mortified puts on shows across the country in which amateur performers and seasoned professionals alike perform embarrassing material from their adolescence. Emo journal entries, bad poetry, derivative songsâ€”it’s all fair game, and it’s all delightful.
This weekend Mortified returns to San Francisco for the annual AngstGiving show. For two nights, you can celebrate the gift that keeps on giving: awkwardness. Now I believe the proceeds for AngstGiving go to a good cause, but to be quite honest, I can’t find anything confirming that on the Mortified website. At the very least, your purchase of a ticket will go to the cause of making you laugh, which is worthwhile in and of itself! (Seriously, though, are we helping children in need here? I’ll update as soon as I know for sure.)
