Mortified is one of the funniest shows in San Francisco. From Scott Lifton's (San Francisco producer) e-mail regarding it:
so maybe you've been a recluse all year, maybe you just stay home, twitching in the darkness, petting your cat. Or maybe you've been too busy all year, making deals...arranging mergers, conquering third world countries...maybe you've fallen in love and have been frolicking in the wilderness, admiring butterflies..maybe you HAVENT SEEN MORTIFIED YET....or you have but it was once and you came late and couldn't see over the head of the disgustingly eager fans..maybe you've been telling your friends but you've been waiting for that one performer that made you piss your pants.......well if these categories are you, then THIS IS THE MORTIFIED NOT TO BE MISSED!
This is our one year anniversary "Best of Mortified!"
One year of making people laugh,cry,cringe,gasp, and sometimes induce vomiting!
This is the one you have to see! You can not miss it!
These are the best of the acts we've had to offer...the funniest, most personal, most embarassing, most shameful....watch us spill our guts on the stage or your sick pleasure!
We offer the best performers plus prizes, contests, and giveaways, and we have the club all night! So please stay after the show for forgettable 80's music all night with djs shawn olsen and andrew kelsey(blue collar entertainment, www.blue-collarent.com).
So witness our shame, win some free stuff, and dance your best molly ringwald with us all night next mon dec 4th and thursday dec 7th at the make out room @ 8 pm!
Heres our roster of shame:
Alene Grassi: see what alcohol and pot can do to a goody two shoes!
Leslie Mclean: see what religous suppression does for your sex drive!
Lori Fowler: learn the trails and tribulations of joining the cotton judging team!
Adam Gropman: hear the true account of a suburban kid forced to go to a rugged summer camp to live "as the natives once had"!
Watch our annual worst teen poetry slam!
And for your listening the pleasure, witness on stage the final debut of the greatest worst one man metal band that ever rocked a stage!

Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek and The "Today Show", and featured frequently on This American Life, 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. As the largest and longest-running project of its kind, our grassroots comedy collective has spent years sifting through hundreds of otherwise forgotten notebooks while paving the way for a strange new brand of entertainment.
After all, 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 (comics, celebrities, singers) to total amateurs (architects, ad execs, salesmen). All in the noble pursuit of self-degradation.
Fueled by nonstop sold out live events across the nation (LA, NYC, San Fran, Boston, Chicago), a book with Simon Spotlight Entertainment, international media coverage, and intense word-of-mouth, Mortified continues to unleash its unique brand of angst onto the world. Share the shame.
