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.

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:
