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 where everyday people read from their embarrassing old journals, poems, songs, essays (and more) from their teenage years in front of an audience. I’ve been hosting this show since the year 2000 (this show is in it’s teen angst years!). More info about the show HERE.
Part stand-up comedy, part confessional, part storytelling night.
1 – The work has to be your own. ‘The work’ can be anything: poetry, journals, letters, songs, short stories, notes passed, online chats, anything so long as it’s your own and…
2- The work must have been written by you between the ages of 8-19. (Usually between the years between 10-17 are the most angst filled.)
3 – You have to be at least 3 years older than you were when you wrote ‘the work.’ (You need the emotional distance to get the funny).
