Hey Vancouver, I’m back in your fair city. You thought I was gone forever, didn’t you? Well, not quite. Don’t write me off.
I’m back figuring out ma shite and while I’m doing that I’m going to do what I love the most – putting on shows! I hope to see you there. If not, I’ll probably pack up my bags and leave you again. That’s how Canada works, right? You’re never something until you’re something somewhere else.
TEEN ANGST NIGHT
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 Night.
Teen Angst Night is a comedic reading series, hosted and produced by Sara Bynoe since 2000, where everyday people read from their embarrassing old journals, poems, songs, essays (and more).
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 or feel physically upset while reading it- it’s worth sharing! The more embarrassing the better!
Sorry, reader spots are full. Another event will happen again soon. Get in touch if you want to be involved.

Funny people read from terrible books.
Have you ever read a poorly written novel and thought to yourself, who publishes this crap? Or come across a hilariously out of date self-help book in a thrift store? Perhaps you flipped through any celebrity autobiography and guffawed at her/his life story. Well, that’s what Say Wha?! is all about.
With readings by moi and
Save Thursday, October 16 in your calendar. I’m working on a special event. It’s something new that I’ve been pondering for over a year. Stay tuned for more info.
