Dear Diary: Mortified Live

Best Storytelling Night, August 2015

Dear Diary: Mortified live is the coolest touring storytelling show in L.A. Performers share embarrassing childhood relics—journals, art, song lyrics—in front of a live audience (but unlike in middle school, the crown laughs with the victims, not at them). With this sort of reaction, it’s surprisingly fun to relive youth’s most awkward moments. Thank goodness dorky kids document their naïve, angry, confused, and lustful thoughts. Now they have something to read aloud to folks who will surely understand why, if Scott Baio really knew us, he would love us as much as we love him.
