DC, Ep. 6

February 20, 2014 — In our annual showcase of DC's lit and comedic finest, Literary Death Match made its Sixth & I in an event that saw Danielle Evans take down Regie Cabico in a winner-take-all Literary Judaic Pictionary finale by a score of 9-6 to win Evans the LDM DC, Ep. 6 championship.

But before the finale was even a thought, the night kicked off with Larry Doyle (Emmy (The Simpsons) & Thurber Award-winning author of I Love you Beth Cooper) who reeled off a hilarious tale called "Please Read Before Suing" — a FAQ of a dubious supersupplement from his 2011 collection Deliriously Happy. Then it was Danielle Evans, multi-award winning author of Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self who blazed brilliantly through a story that had the audience on the edge of their seats. 

The mic was then turned over to the trio of all-star judges: Dan Kois, editor of Slate's Book Review New York Times Magazine contributing writer; Lisa Bonosassistant editor for Washington Post's Outlook section; and Eric Schulze, co-founder and creative director at thirstDC, molecular biologist & Sagan acolyte who reeled off praise upon praise for both readers — with humorous interstitial commentery — before deciding it would be Evans who would advance as the night's first finalist. 

Then the night whizzed into Round 2, which started with Elizabeth Winder, author of Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953 who enchanted the crowd with a series of Plath facts before telling a story of Sylvia's teenage field trip to the Boston jail. Finally it was Regie Cabico, poet and spoken word artist featured on HBO's Def Poetry Jam, who shouted out a love poem with so much wonderful the crowd's mouths were all agape. 

Again the mics were handed over to the judges, who again dealt hilarities and congratulations to each reader before huddling up and deciding it would be Cabico who would advance as the night's second finalist. 

Then up stepped LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga to announce the night's finale: Literary Judaic Pictionary, in which Cabico and Evans were tasked with naming the book by Jewish authors that audience members drew. It was a back-and-forth affair, but in the end it was Evans who shouted the final answer first (Catch-22) to seal the deal, winning her the LDM DC, Ep. 6 medal, and literary immortality to go with it.
