Witness adults sharing their actual and hilarious teen diaries,poems,songs read by the original authors in front of total strangers.
Now in 9 different cities, and celebrating its 11 year anniversary nationally, and 8 years of the most outlandish comedy show in the Bay Area.
Witness adults sharing their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, plays, home movies, art) with others, in order to reveal stories about their lives. Hear grown men and women confront their past with 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 Jon Bon Jovi.
Performers range from industry professionals to total amateurs all in the noble pursuit of self degradation. Share the shame.
