Event description


Join us 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 Music Box Theatre.

WBEZ is presenting three Mortified shows in the upcoming months, and two of them have special themes. In February we’ll celebrate the pinnacle of humiliating holidays.

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.

Mortified Chicago is generously sponsored by Goose Island.
