Share a Little Teen Angst This Fall

Teen Angst Facebook Event

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 an 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!

The next event is Wednesday, September 23 from 8-10 PM at the Cottage Bistro, 4468 Main Street, Vancouver.

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- You cannot be proud of the work you read. It’s best if you’re extremely embarrassed of it.

Readers must sign up to read in advance (see form below:

CFOX Says “Teen Angst Night is a good time”

Last night was Teen Angst Night; my long running show where people read from their melodramatic teenage diaries/ poetry collections and more.

The show was great with lots of new and new-ish people sharing text that hadn’t seen the light of day for years. Jeremy Baker from CFOX attended and talked about the show on the radio today. Have a listen:

Here are some of last night’s gems in tweet form:

Apparently hard-ons were a theme.

The next Teen Angst Night is July 7.

Teen Angst Night – What People Say

Next Tuesday is Teen Angst Night. Awesome, right? That’s what you’re thinking if you’ve been before.

If you’ve never been I know you’re apprehensive. You’re worried it’s a therapy show. It’s not. You’re worried it’s not going to be funny. It’s hilarious. Maybe you’re afraid you’ll be inspired to dig through your old diaries and then one day end up on stage like the rest of them; this is very likely. Don’t worry, it’s fun and addictive. Why else would I keep doing this show?

To put you newbies at ease here’s an example of some of the things people have shared at Teen Angst Night before:

Teen Angst Night is hilarious, but don’t just take my word from it. Go on Twitter and search for #TeenAngstNight. I did and look at these great reviews I found.

Teen Angst Facebook Event

Dear reader, if you know me, you know that my shows are my babies. I created Teen Angst Night 15 years ago and I’m so thrilled and surprised that it’s still alive. On March 19 I’m doing a very special live taping of Teen Angst Night for OUTtv.

I know I do a lot of shows and many of you attend them on the regular and I cannot tell you in words how much that means to me. This show means the world to me and I would love to have you there for support.

Look, I’m a single girl likely to never have a wedding or child and I know we’re not friend-friends but you could show support for me like I’m unlikely to get any other time by showering me with your presence and laughter. It’s going to be a great night.

Did I mention that it’s FREE. So really, it’s my present to you. Come out and have a delightful time on me.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, February 17 is Teen Angst Night

If you know anything about me you should already be familiar with this event. I’ve been running it since I was barely legal. It started in Calgary in 2000 – that’s 15 years of making fun of my teen angst. My Teen Angst Night is a full grown teenager!

Last month a team of students from BCIT came and did a radio story about the night. It perfectly captures the fun of the event. Please have a listen here:

Still not sure about it? Need more information? Okay, here’s the full package. I hope to see you at the show! It’s going to be a great one. There’s a whole bunch of new readers sharing stuff and 4 of those newbies are men,
