Money can’t buy you love. It can buy you: Nice apartments, dinners at Nobu, and the company of gabby arm candy named Gabby or Arm or Candy. If love has any way to defend itself, the comedians at Uptown Showdown will figure it out during this night of unhinged, unpredictable debate.
This installment includes a previous winner Mehran Khaghani (Last Comic Standing), Sarah Pappalardo (Reductress), Baratunde Thurston (How to Be Black), Joe Zimmerman (Smiling at Wolves), Peter Grosz (The President Show), and a special surprise guest!!
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. Hosted by Matthew Love.
Past Performers include Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Tom Cavanagh, Kristen Schaal, Wyatt Cenac, Maria Bamford, Janeane Garofalo, Jackie Hoffman, David Wain, Sasheer Zamata, Hasan Minhaj, Jon Glaser, Ilana Glazer, Dave Hill, Julie Klausner, A.D. Miles, Christian Finnegan, Elna Baker, Kevin Townley, Tom Shillue and more.
