Literary Death Match, now in 60 cities worldwide, was called “the most entertaining reading series ever” by the LA Times. The live show brings together four authors to read their most electric writing for seven minutes or less before a panel of three all-star judges. After each pair of readers, the judges take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary — in the categories of literary merit, performance and intangibles — then select their favorite to advance to the finals. The two finalists then compete in a vaguely literary competition to determine who takes home the Literary Death Match crown. Previous guests include Jason Reitman, Jill Soloway, Keegan-Michael Key, Michael Shannon, Parker Posey, Chris O’Dowd, Diablo Cody, David Cross, Henry Rollins, Hannibal Buress and many more.
