It’s hard to believe but surprisingly I was not always the cultured erudite person you know today. When I was 14, I began a series of high school foreign exchange programs. At the time, I assumed I would naturally be the cool and mysterious “studying abroad” student to the people I met in Italy, Japan, Israel, and Costa Rica. But, as it turns out, I was a lot more American than I thought.
Fortunately, I kept a journal of my time away. So, if you’re in LA next week, I invite you to see a completely new side of me when I read from my teenage travel journals out loud and on stage. I’ll be joined by 7 other people who will also be reading from their 100% real journals, diaries, poems and love letters from their teenage years. It’s a hilarious show called Mortified and I’ll be in the lineup on Wednesday, June 27th at 8PM at King King in Hollywood.
