COMMITTEE NOTES: Magic happens at every DeathMatch. And tonight Katy Rydell drew Cory King from the actor's bucket to perform her monologue "Truckdriver." His simple, understated performance of a decent man on a grim mission who turns his personal pain into a public service was astounding. They both took home top honors for their work.

The June 2016 Deathmatch explores a classic theme: Family. Michael "MoJo" Tooher is the host.
