About the show.

Mortified LIVE by WBEZ Chicago.

May 23, 2022.

Doors: 630PM | Show: 730PM Central time, Chicago.

Join us on May 23, for a night of humorous storytelling from everyday people in Chicago. We’ve all experienced some kind of embarrassment in our lifetime. Come out and commiserate over some cold beverages at the historic Thalia Hall. Witness “personal redemption through public humiliation” in a refreshing show that is equal parts comedic, cathartic and voyeuristic. Mortified is the largest and longest running project of its kind featuring a cast of Chicago’s bravest souls. Share the shame.

Mortified stars everyday people reading aloud their most embarrassing, pathetic and private teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes… in front of total strangers.
