Ever since my mother read a very bad poem that I wrote in 1988 in which I happened to predict Donald Trump “taking over the universe” at my birthday dinner last year, friends have been suggesting that I apply to perform it at Mortified, the monthly show at Littlefield where participants read aloud things that they wrote during the awkward years. I’m not on the slate just yet, but if it’s anything like past shows I’ve attended, some really talented, hilarious people with a low threshold for embarrassment will be sharing some truly special artifacts from their pasts. For just $10 a ticket, this is one of the best bangs for your buck in town. The show starts at 8pm, but get there earlier if you want a good view.
