Tana Mongeau, a famous YouTuber who first started uploading story time videos in 2015, and Brooke Schofield, a comedic TikTok personality and podcast co-host, embarked on their North American tour “Cancelled.” For those who are unfamiliar with Mongeau and Schofield, they have a podcast named “Cancelled with Tana Mongeau” in which they share funny or crazy stories, talk about their experiences interacting with celebrities and other influencers in L.A. and discuss hot takes on pop culture. 

Mongeau and Schofield graced the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre stage on Feb. 24 with their two back-to-back live events at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. They started the show with a story in which Mongeau and Schofield both verbally reenacted the events of a man who befriended them and put several hidden cameras throughout the set of their “Cancelled” podcast, which is in Mongeau’s home. The story unfolds as they reveal to the crowd how each camera was found, their reactions and the aftermath of the stalker situation. The crowd was filled with young adult fans, laughing and reacting as the twists and turns were unveiled.

After they finished their story, a notification popped up on the projector screen behind them to reveal an exclusive video from a “friend of the show,” as Mongeau calls her, Trisha Paytas. Paytas has been featured as a guest on the “Cancelled” podcast many times and is a fan favorite. In the quick two-minute video, Paytas made a “special ‘Cancelled’ drink” for the audience and cracked a few jokes before ending the video. 

For the last story time of the night, Schofield told a story about an A-list celebrity’s sibling who was flirting and texting with her. Long story short, the beginning of the relationship was met with an abrupt end, and every crowd member was jaw-dropped and hanging on the edge of their seats.

The “Cancelled Podcast Tour” concluded with Mongeau and Schofield standing up, walking towards the front of the stage to wave goodbye and snapping a quick photo for Instagram with the audience. The merch stand consisted of a sweatshirt, two different t-shirts, a baby tee, a sticker sheet, a tote bag and a signed poster. 

This show is perfect if you are already a fan of the “Cancelled” podcast, or are familiar with Mongeau or Schofield’s social media presence.
