WHAT IS TEEN ANGST NIGHT?
Teen Angst is an open mic comedic reading series where everyday people read from their embarrassing old journals, poems, songs, essays (and more), in front of an audience first produced in the year 2000. Part stand-up comedy, part storytelling night, part juvenilia.
WHAT IS A TEEN ANGST NIGHT LIKE?
Like a poetry readings meets AA meets stand-up comedy. There’s bad poetry, journal entries, old songs and other teenage angst performed by people who are mortified by what they created from the bottoms of their souls yet brave enough to share it with the world. Common themes are: I am alone, No one understands my pain, I will never love again, fuck you, fuck off, go to hell, and life sucks.
“It’s high time the rhyme-crazy juveniles of the world are celebrated as the poetic prodigies we truly were.” Nylon Magazine (about the book, obvs)
“It’s bad. But in a good way of course.” The WestEnder, Vancouver
“A highlight [of Teen Angst Night] was the felt board presentation by Sara. The former library worker read an old high school poem based on the Night Before Christmas that told about the gang in her neighborhood, The Flava. Even if you couldn’t see the felt board cutouts of trucks with “the Flava” symbol on them,it was bloody hilarious”- ION magazine
“Who knew bad poetry could be so good. Funny and poignant, but mostly funny.” -Canadian Actor Review
