October 12, 2011 — Kicking off a bi-coastal LDM double-header (an LDM in NYC happened just hours later), the Literary Death Match in London finished with Tom Cox claiming the crown!
Full details coming shortly!
Boom, baby. We’re back. Sponsored by Picador Books, LDM is about to take London down in a rollickin’ blaze of literary and comedic brilliance. Again. (Shout-out to our transatlantic twin rocking in it NYC on the same night.)
The judges include sheer brilliance, co-headlined by recent LDM champ Nikesh Shukla (whose sitcom Kabaddasses is airing on November 8 on Channel 4), gorgeous comedy-lady Nat Luurtsema and award-winning novelist/poet/ playwright/editor/aphorist/lyricist Kevin MacNeil (author of A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde)!
Those vying for LDM glory include Tom Cox, friend of the felines and author of Talk to the Tail, Molly “mistress of all trades” Naylor — poet, performer, writer and theatre-maker — whose book Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You is an illustrated text of her solo show, the youngest-ever winner of the BBC National Short Story Prize, D.W. Wilson (author of Once You Break a Knuckle), and Benjamin Partridge, the grotesquely young and successful Welsh comedian – so be sure to pack the anti-aging cream, folks.
