For the final Literary Death Match of what's been a brilliant 2013, LDM returns to Busby's East for a Xmas Spectacular like never before, and celebrate the one-year anniversary of our LDM TV shoot (we got optioned!). Plus, discount tickets for those that bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. Lit! Comedy! Brilliant lineup! Good cause! Be there with sleigh bells on!
The night will feature 4 writers reading their own wonderful tales for 7 minutes or less, judged by 3 all-star judges. Then 2 finalists will compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game that will elevate your soul and slightly confound.
Literary Merit: Dana Adam Shapiro, Oscar-nominated director of Murderball and author of You Can Be Right (or You Can Be Married)
Performance: Laura Krafft, improviser & Emmy-winning comedy writer (The Colbert Report; The Crazy Ones)
Intangibles: Josh Meyers, actor from MADtv, The Mindy Project, Behind the Candelabra and The Awesomes
