Literary Death Match is a competitive, humor-centric reading series that features four readers (who represent print and online literary concerns) in an edge-of-your-seat read-off, all critiqued by three all-star judges. Regularly produced in New York City and San Francisco (and being pitched as a TV show), each live event marries the literary and performative aspects of Def Poetry Jam, the rapier-witted quips of American Idol’s judging (without the
meanness), and the ridiculousness and hilarity of Double Dare.
