The Mortified Guide

Hailed "a cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek, MORTIFIED is an international storytelling project where adults share the embarrassing things they created as kids (old diaries, letters, lyrics, art) in front of total strangers. What began as a tiny LA stage show 15 years ago has grown into a worldwide phenomenon that includes: stage shows running in 20 cities worldwide (from Portland to Paris), a podcast from PRX & Radiotopia, a book series (including 2017’s My Mortified Life), a documentary (Mortified Nation), a talk show that ran 2 seasons on Sundance TV (Mortified Sessions), a public radio special (Mortified’s Totally Juvenile Election Special). 


In 2018, Mortified released a TV series on Netflix, The Mortified Guide, which premiered at Sundance FIlm Festival and was called “spectacular… real and touching” by The Hollywood Reporter. Coming later in 2018, Mortified will also release a Dutch-language series in Holland. The project has been featured on This American Life, All Things Considered, Entertainment Weekly, CNN, and The Today Show.
