There's something extremely cathartic about revealing your adolescent humiliations to a room full of perfect strangers — incidentally, it's also really entertaining for the room full of strangers. On Saturday, the live storytelling show Mortified, which invites guests to the stage to unburden themselves by reading embarrassing diary entries and the like, hosts its 14th-anniversary show, which is being filmed for an upcoming TV program. (Held in cities across the U.S., the event was immortalized on film in the 2013 documentary Mortified Nation, which is available on Netflix.) At the 6:30 p.m. show, readers include Layla McKay, Maurissa Tancharoen and L.A. Weekly contributor Adam Gropman; the 9:30 p.m. show features Robert Woo, Barb and Vera Duffy and Leonard Hyman. Both shows will have surprise guests. It's always sort of fun to laugh at the misfortune of others — but especially when they want you to.
