Teenage mortification becomes comedy gold in Montrealer Andrea Stanford’s
Verbal Diary-ah: Confessions of an awkward teenager
Ever wish you could revisit your teenage years? The Oscar-worthy DRAMA? The constant EMBARRASSMENT and nagging SELF-DOUBT? Probably not, right? For comedian Andrea Stanford, the opportunity to read you entries from her actual teenage diaries was just too juicy to pass up. Join her as she shares harrowing-yet-hilarious tales from her adolescence; from first beers to "first times", then responds to these angst-ridden tirades 15 years later from her current and (marginally) more mature perspective. How will she answer her teenage self? Was all that worrying necessary? Has anything even changed? Check out the show and find out!
Verbal Diary-ah explores the idea of then and now, especially when it comes to a teenager's utopian vision of where she sees her life heading versus where it actually ends up.
Andrea currently works for CBC Montreal. She also moonlights as a stand-up comedian and has twice been voted one of Montreal's top comedians by readers of The Montreal Mirror. She is also a three-time winner of the monthly "Best of the Open Mic" competition at the ComedyWorks.
