Mortified celebrates back to school month with a hilarious collection of embarrassing pieces in a salute to the most awkward month in a teenager's life!
To celebrate, we are proud to announce the Mortified premiere of our guest house band: The Clefdivers
! In celebrating all things awkward, they are a nerdy, yet talented and occasionally sexual a capella group creating revisions, re-edits and remixes of 80's classics.
• A young girl writes a letter to Santa, hoping to receive a headbanger dude for Christmas!
• A teen male's attempt at a "Lord Of The Flies" like script where the hero gets the girl, survives a deserted island, and discovers a goldmine of drugs!
• Witness the actual death obsessed horror films created by a 10 yr old!
• A teenage female travels abroad and decides to take home teenage boys as souvenirs!
Hailed as a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek
and celebrated for years by the likes of This American Life, The Today Show, The Onion AV Club,
& Entertainment Weekly, Mortified
is a comic excavation of teen angst artifacts (journals, poems, letters, lyrics, home movies, schoolwork) as shared by their original authors -- in front of total strangers!
Where else can you hear grown men and women confront their past with firsthand tales of their first kiss, first puff, worst prom, fights with mom, life at bible camp, worst hand job, best mall job, and reasons they deserved to marry Bon Jovi? Submissions come from a wide range of participants, from professional performers to total amateurs . All in the noble pursuit of self-degradation. Share the shame.
