Salon of Shame is a show where participants stand and read from their worst adolescent writing, including middle school diaries, high school poetry, unsent letters, etc. Founded in 2005 in Seattle, the Salon is cathartic for readers and hilarious for listeners. Everybody wins when it comes to embarrassment!
Who: Hashtag Comedy + Studio 35, Hosted by Sarah J Storer and Sara Bucher Greer of Hashtag Comedy
Where: Studio 35 Cinema and Drafthouse
When: September 25, 2019, 7pm-9pm
Show Overview & Reader 411: The first Columbus show will feature 10-12 readers, reading for 5 minutes apiece. It is NOT a standup show…the material must be read from writings the reader created in their middle and high school years (though some college essays/poetry could be okay). The joy is in the awkwardness itself…not clever asides or explanations. So truly anyone with the ability to read and the guts to lay themselves bare can be considered for the show.
