To finish off the first month of what we're certain will be a glorious 2015, Literary Death Match returns to Elbo Room for an all-star laden celebration that will spin that wig you accidentally glued onto your head over the holidays (plus, it's ATZ's 40th birthday celebration — fun!). Preorder and let's pack the joint!
To celebrate our 9th birthday, we're putting on a show at Largo at the Coronet with enough award-winning talent to take us another nine years — all the way to 2024! Come witness the high highs, the still pretty high lows and all the dramatic turns (mostly of phrase) in between! Preorder now, as this one's going to sell out!

January 22, 2014 — Literary Death Match's 2015 debut was a romp for the generations (and the longest show in LDM history!), jam-packed with brilliant readings, comedic absurdity to the infinite degree, and all of it ended with Peter Mehlman outdueling Mary Anna King in overtime in a Original or Adapted finale that won Mehlman the LDM LA, Ep. 35 crown.
