Did you know that we had a bigger crowd at our last Uptown Showdown than Trump had at his inauguration? It’s true! After all, can anyone really say what’s fact and what’s fiction? We can. Hey, everyone’s doing it! In our next installment, John Fugelsang (Tell Me Everything), Opus Moreschi (head writer at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), Maeve Higgins (Maeve in America), Naomi Ekperigin (Broad City), Dan Soder (Guy Code) and Selena Coppock (The New Rules for Blonds) will debate the hottest topic of the day. And no matter which team wins, we still want to thank our millions of fans.
Hosted by Matthew Love
You never know what to expect at this bi-monthly, wacky debate series that brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to argue a chosen topic, such as which pet is superior cats or dogs and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? Debaters will argue these lingering questions, drawing from historical fact and personal-opinion in equal measure, and with plenty of silliness and audience participation. Forget about school reform and health care, these issues, heatedly argued by some of the funniest, smartest, intensely wacky creative thinkers around, are the topics that keep us awake at night….in a good way. Winner decided by the audience.Buy tickets/get more info now
