Cringe on TV

Are you interested in baring your fragile and tormented teenage soul to a drunken audience of your peers and a television camera or three? Well, who wouldn’t! Get your chance at the taping of the Cringe television pilot, Saturday, November 11, in New York.

We’re looking for some brave, funny souls who are willing and eager to sell out their teenage selves on camera. We want people reading straight from their teenage diaries, journals, notes, letters, poems, and songs. A good test to determine whether or not your material is Cringe-worthy: when you read it to yourself, do you physically cringe? Then it’s funny.

This pilot is set to air on a major national cable channel. If you’re interested, please send an email to Include your name, age, phone number, as well as some information about the material you’d like to read, including the age at which it was written, and a sample or excerpt. If you have a current photo or video of yourself, a photo from the time of the piece was written, or any other relative supporting info, please include that as well.
