Literary Death Match SF, Ep. 59 feat. Maggie Tokuda-Hall + Faith Adiele!
- Performing & Visual Arts
- Elbo Room, San Francisco CA
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!
What is Literary Death Match? 4 authors read their own work for 7 minutes or less. They're judged by 3 all-star judges who respond (often comedically) to the work before choosing 2 finalists to compete in the LDM finale, a vaguely literary game (think Pin the Mustache on Hemingway) to decide the ultimate champion.
Literary Merit: Sarah Marie Griff, Irish author of Not Lost (@NewIslandPress)
Performance: Kurt Bodden, writer, comedian and star of hit one-man show Steve Seabrook: Better Than You
Intangibles: Jules Posner, comedian featured on Jokes.com’s No Drink Minimum and Rooftopcomedy.com’s Road Tripon Hulu
