Mortified @ Beat Kitchen

If you'd be an Olympic athlete, were laughing at yourself (or others) a sport, then find "personal redemption through public humiliation" this Thursday at the nationwide phenomenon Mortified. Since 2002, countless participants have willingly shared writing, art or media created before the age of 21 to exorcise their demons for laughs. The concept is such a hit they're making a movie and they've already published two books. Beat Kitchen, 2100 W. Belmont, Thursday, October 7 at 8:30pm. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door and can be purchased here.
