Performance

LiveJournal / LieJournal


This event has already finished!

From LiveJournal to Blogger to MySpace, we have all littered the web with our adolescent juvenilia: overly-earnest blog posts, emo proto-selfies, semi-private paeans to our unattainable high school crushes. Thank God it’s all buried and inaccessible now, right? Right?

Join four comedy writers as they share the most embarrassing extracts from their old online journals… with a twist. While half of the journal entries are mortifyingly real, half are totally made up. As audience members, it’s up to you to figure it out: LiveJournal, or LieJournal?
