Dear Angsty People of New York,
- Did you write lame-ass love letters as a kid?
- Did you write angsty lyrics as a teenager?
- Did you spend high school writing melodramatic journals?
So did the people behind Mortified. And they want
you to join them. Yep, Mortified is actively looking
for new readers to join the fun as we open a chapter in your city
. If you or someone you know would like to read aloud utterly embarrassing
childhood relics in front of total strangers... we'd LOVE to meet
with you and hear your material. Open to all.
WHAT: MORTIFIED CASTING - NYC AREA
WHEN: JULY 21st, 2007
WHAT IS MORTIFIED:
Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek
and celebrated by the likes of This American Life, The Today
Show, The Onion AV Club, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Jane, Daily
Candy and more... Mortified is a comic
excavation of adolescent artifacts. With chapters in NYC, LA, San
Fran and beyond, the project collects childhood creations (lettters,
lyrics, journals and beyond) and uses them to reveal uniquely autobiographical
tales. Behold, There are amazing stories buried in the pages of people's
lives... our mission is to simply help find them.
WHAT DO I SUBMIT?
All material must be written between the ages of 6-21 and by all means,
totally totally suck. We look for stuff that is real, written by you,
and reveals something unique about yourself. Topics can range from
the sweet (crushes) to the dark (depression)... just as long as they
make people laugh. And no, you do not have to be an actor of any kind.
Open to all types. To watch sample
clips or find info, visit at http://www.getmortified.com.
