Making its Sydney debut, Literary Death Match – named “the greatest reading series ever” by the LA Times and featured in 64 cities around the world – brings together four authors to read for five minutes or less before a panel of three all-star judges. They take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary in the categories of literary merit, performance and intangibles. The judges then select their favourites to advance to the finals where they compete in a vaguely literary slapstick showdown to determine who will take home the Literary Death Match crown. Hosted by Literary Death Match creator Adrian Todd Zuniga.
