Utah Humanities Presents
Literary Death Match.

Utah Humanities presents the triumphant return of Adrian Todd Zuniga and Literary Death Match to Salt Lake City! LDM marries the literary and performative aspects of Def Poetry Jam, rapier-witted quips of American Idol's judging (without the meanness), and the ridiculousness and hilarity of Double Dare. Judges for this event will include: Brian Laidlaw, Cassie Cox, and Angelika Brewer. Contestants to be announced soon. Tickets are $10.00 and are available at beginning in late August. How It Works: Literary Death Match features a mix of four established and emerging writers who perform their most electric work before a live audience and a panel of three all-star judges. After a pair of readings, the judges take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary, focusing on Literary Merit, Performance and Intangibles. The judges select one writer from each round to advance to the finals, where we trade in the show's literary sensibility for an absurdly comical climax — like Pin the Mustache on Hemingway, or a literary spelling bee featuring complicated author names — to decide who takes home the Literary Death Match crown.
