Everyone Loves Mortified | Someday Lounge: January 23, 24

Mortified is one of the best events this weekend in Portland. As you can see, it is loved by all the media in Portland except us. That ends this weekend when the Pipeline rolls on down to Someday and jumps on this praise wagon. We will not be DENIED from the praise list want to miss out on an obviously swingin good time.

From Mortified:
Mortified, Someday LoungeMortified, the cult comedy sensation that recently celebrated its one-year anniversary in Portland returns to Someday Lounge for a two-night performance, January 23rd & 24th.  A new cast of brave performers will share their shame on stage in the show that has sold out nearly every performance since its debut in November, 2007.

Hailed locally by Portland Monthly, Willamette Week, Portland Mercury, Portland Tribune, Live Wire! and more. 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.  Witness "personal redemption through public humiliation" in a refreshing show that is equal parts comedic, cathartic and voyeuristic.  The largest and longest running project of its kind returns featuring a collection of Portland's bravest souls.

    I can’t believe that I have not seen this! Count us in! However, you are not the only ones with “a collection of Portland’s bravest souls” go to dosomethingforacause.com and see which Portland Creatives and Techs got naked for a cause (presumed naked of course ;)
