Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek 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?
Participants include a wide range of people, from professional performers (comics, celebrities, singers) to total amateurs (architects, ad execs, salesmen) all in the noble pursuit of personal redemption through public humiliation. Share the shame.

Who is The FREEZE? They are half improvisational comedy/ half freestyle hip hop.They are a group of musicians and verbally deft MCs who tackle the foibles of daily life in a completely improvised freestyle rap show that uses audience suggestions to inspire their songs!
Featuring Jelly Donut (Andrew Bancroft), Mr. Diggs (Daveed Diggs), Super K (Kyra Gordon), Junkyard (Olive Mitra), P.I.O.M. (Sanjay Pardanani), Gift of Godvien (Brian Rodvien), Agent Smith (Mike Smith), and Two Touch (Anthony Veneziale).
"One cup Beastie Boys, one cup 'Saturday Night Live' and a pinch of P-Funk adds up to a dizzying dose of creativity."
