Uptown Showdown: Nature vs. Nurture

Was Lady Gaga right? Are we Born This Way? Or did Bowie nail it when he wrote Changes? As our two teams of comedians debate Nature vs. Nurture, it won’t matter whether they decide it’s in the genes or upbringing—we’re guessing they’ll still blame their parents. John Fugelsang (Tell Me Everything), Krystyna Hutchinson (Guys We F*cked podcast), David Rees (Election Profit Makers) and Kevin Townley (The Talent Show) will be joined by other great comedians to debate the age-old question.

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.
