It's taken us over eight years to wise up, but Literary Death Match is finally making its way to Oakland, with a debut that'll have you in throes of lit, wit and wonderment overload. Don't miss it, this one's going to be an insta-classic!
Before summer's swelter abandons the Bay, we're returning for a Saturday night of literary battle and comedic irreverance that'll kickstart your night. Outlandishness, intelligence, oddity, tipsyness: all comes with the price of admission. Be there!
July 22, 2014 — In LDM's annual Westwood delight, we returned to the magnificent Hammer Museum for a mid-summer event that boasted some of LA's finest. After a pitch-perfect night, the show closed with Sean Michaels outdueling Sara Benincasa in the Quiz of Death II to win Michaels the LDM LA, Ep. 30 crown.
To cool down your summer simmer, Literary Death Match returns to Largo at the Coronet for a wild adventure of literary delight, comedian miracles, madcap sensation and pretty much the smartest/best-looking crowd in the history of the planet. That sounds can't-miss, right? It is.
In a cavalcade of masterful literary excess, Literary Death Match blows the doors off September with our our Symphony Space debut — a brilliant night of lit-of-all-stripes, witticisms, raucousness, and braininess galore. Come along!
