“Get Mortified stars everyday adults sharing aloud their most embarrassing, pathetic and private teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes… in front of total strangers.”
Thats the best way that i can describe it, from there website. Its a show about laughing at other peoples miseries. What can be wrong with that? I have seen get mortified probably about a year ago, and i loved it the first time i saw it. I had mentioned it to my girlfriend about going to go see it and she loved the idea. I think i thought about it because she had read a letter that someone had given her in high school.
She quickly ordered tickets for the next show once i told her about it. We invited a bunch of friends and got a booth. Everyone at our booth pretty much ordered pizza’s, for some reason none of us believed in the M Bar’s potential as a restaurant.
I have nothing bad to say about the show, it is really funny listening to random peoples diaries or personal experiences. Teen movies do well, because you love being reminded about your own childhood. These diaries don’t remind you of your won life, but it brings backs memories about what you were like. You can’t help not laughing about all of it. The people are real and they get embarrassed and it makes it twice as funny.
After the show i asked my girlfriend if she wanted to read that letter that she read to me, she replied that she didn’t write it, so she couldn’t read it. She then said that i could read it and pretend to be him.
Get Mortified has shows in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The show runs monthly in those cities. In Los Angeles the show is playing at the M Bar on vine. Check out the website at http://www.getmortified.com/ for more information on when the next show is. Tickets for the show are $10 in Los Angeles.
And i wouldn’t recommend going to the Vine Bar afterwards, as we did and it was a private party. And because of that, i hate the Vine Bar. I recommend that you go check this show out the next time it comes around, Its a good laugh. More laughs than you will get at a comedy show thats for sure.::
