Somewhere in the back of your closet gathering dust and turning yellow with age is comedic gold. Those old journals, poems, and essays you wrote as a teenager when you thought you could do no wrong, would probably make you cringe at your former feelings if you were to read them today. Now, imagine sharing them in front of an audience. That’s exactly what happens at Teen Angst.
Teen Angst: A Celebration of Inadvertently Hilarious Adolescent Writing, is an open mic comedic reading series where everyday people read from their embarrassing old journals, poems, songs, essays (and more). So, get digging through your old notebooks and find some gems!
You can share anything (poetry, songs, letters, journals, diaries, essays, stories, plays, lists, etc) so long as it follows these rules:
1- The work must be your own.
2- You must have written it between the ages of 10-19.
3- It’s best if the work is at least 4 years old.
4- If you cringe while reading it- it’s worth sharing! The more embarrassing the better!
$5 at the door or FREE if you read on the show, but you’ve got to book in advance.
