AUGUST 26

THE MORTIFIED GUIDE TO GROWING UP ASIAN
8:00 - 10:00 PM

ARATANI THEATER

A co-production of Disoriented Comedy and Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC).


The makers of The Mortified Podcast and the documentary, Mortified Nation, (available on Netflix) present The Mortified Guide to Growing Up Asian American: a night of stories that remind us what it was like to grow up as an Asian American... and lots more!

Hailed a “cultural phenomenon” by Newsweek and celebrated by This American Life, Entertainment Weekly, Time, Wired, The AV Club, The Today Show, and beyond, Mortified celebrates stories revealed through the strange and extraordinary things we created as kids.

Witness adults sharing their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, plays, home movies, art) with others, in order to reveal stories about their lives. Hear grown men and women confront their past with tales of their first kiss, first puff, worst prom, fights with mom, life at bible camp, worst hand job, best mall job, and reasons they deserved to marry boy band members.

Featuring:
