Share the shame

A Los Angeles stage show that combines stand-up comedy and audience participation has spawned in other cities, as well as leading to an upcoming book, bar and home versions and -- no doubt -- a reality TV show in the near future.

Called "Mortified," the show features audiences members (pre-selected at auditions) who relate their most embarrassing moments on stage.

Since we already know that people will do almost anything to be famous for two minutes, let alone 15, the possibilities are endless.

As related in Newsweek, groups are playing at "Cringe Night" at Freddy's Bar in Brooklyn and "The Salon of Shame" at Rendezvous in Seattle.

Got an embarrassing moment you want to share with us? Send it in.

Just a tiny issue of contention: both Cringe and the Salon of Shame are independent events, unrelated to Mortified in all ways except for the shared concept. :)
