Literary Death Match

Literary Death Match

Literary Death Match

Called “the most entertaining reading series ever” by the Los Angeles Times, this live show brings together four authors to read their most electric writing for six minutes or less before an all-star panel of three judges. After each reading, the judges take turns spouting hilarious commentary about each story, then select their favorite to advance to the finals. The two finalists then compete in the Literary Death Match finale, which trades in the show’s literary sensibility for an absurd and comical climax to determine who takes home the Literary Death Match crown.
Judges: Henry Rollins, Tig Notaro, Rob Delaney. Readers: Rex Pickett, Tupelo Hassman, Jeanne Darst, Javon Johnson.
