What is Literary Death Match? Part literary event, part comedy show, part game show, Literary Death Match brings together four of today’s finest writers to compete in an edge-of-your-seat read-off critiqued by three celebrity judges, and concluded by a slapstick showdown to decide the ultimate champion.
Literary Merit: Tess Morris, British screenwriter of Man Up (Simon Pegg & Lake Bell) and one of BAFTA's Breakthrough Brits of 2015
Performance: John Leguizamo, Emmy and Drama Desk Award-winning actor (Romeo+Juliet, Ride Along, Chef), and author of Ghetto Klown
Intangibles: Christine Nangle, WGA Award-winning TV writer; head writer of The President Show (and former writer for SNL and Inside Amy Schumer)
Super-Intangibles: Jordan Carlos, comedian, writer and actor featured on Broad City, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore & The Colbert Report)
Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga
