Last Big Show of 2016


This Saturday, November 19 is the last Teen Angst Night of 2016.

As a Canadian I’ve been shocked and appalled by the results of the American election so I’ve decided that 20% of all ticket sales will go to the American Civil Liberties Union who work to protect civil liberties in America. My teenage self, who protested her heart out in Calgary at events like Take Back The Night in the 90s (see photo above), would want me to take action.

We need to laugh. We need to love one another.We need to listen to each other. We need to speak up.

I’ll also be sharing some of my high school dramatic political action poetry and… some of my awful journals from Christmas 95 because it’s getting to be that time of year.

Brave Souls Share Their Most Embarrassing Teenage Writing On Stage For Your Entertainment

Teen Angst Night

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 | 8-10 PM | $10 at the door | Cottage Bistro – 4468 Main Street | Readers get in for free*

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.

Teen Angst Night is a 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!

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!

* NOTE: Reader spots for this event are FULL. Message me to get on the mailing list to read next time.

QUICK HISTORY – Teen Angst started in Calgary in 2000 with a live event series and a website, then the website was (probably) one of the first blogs-to-books and published in April 2005 with a book launch event at the KGB Bar in NYC, in 2006 the book was turned into a stage show for the High Performance Rodeo in Calgary (and sold out!), then I created a solo show of my own horrible Teen Angst Poetry which I performed at the Toronto Fringe in 2007, Bumbershoot in 2008, the Edinburgh Free Fringe in 2011, in 2008 I was on the poetry stage at a massive festival in the UK called Latitude, and the live show happens whenever I can squeeze it into my schedule.
