Mortified Returns to S.F. Stage, Premieres Interview Show This Week on Sundance Channel
Recognizing that the artifacts left behind from growing up offer fertile ground for mining comedic gold, David Nadelberg has parlayed his concept of a teen angst-exposing stage show from an event called Mortified with 10 chapters around the world into a new 10-part interview series for American television. The Mortified Sessions premieres at 8 p.m. tonight (Monday, Dec. 5) on the Sundance Channel with Ed Helms (The Office) and Mo'Nique in the hot seat; future guests include Rick Schroeder, Alanis Morrissette, Anthony Michael Hall, Cheryl Hines, and San Francisco's own Margaret Cho.

Those craving a louder and more interactive experience may do so locally at the "Mortified SF 6 Yr Anniversary Supershow" on Friday, Dec. 9, at DNA Lounge at 8 p.m. A still under wraps lineup of performers will tell their tales of humiliation, and the one-man metal band Live Evil should help shred through the tears. (Warning: This is starting to sound like not that different of an evening for the DNA.) Admission is $14 in advance and $21 at the door.
