Say goodbye to summer and get ready for winter by letting two teams of very funny people debate the merits of the two seasons. At the next installment of the wacky debate series, Janeane Garofalo, Dave Hill (This American Life) and Brooke Van Poppelen face off against another team of comedians, writers and performers including Jena Friedman (Late Show with David Letterman, Entertaining the Bartender), Jodi Lennon (Chicago's Second City) and Adam Wade (18-time winner of The Moth StorySLAM) in this quirky take-off on the old school debate team. Hosted by storyteller and comedian Tom Shillue.
Every other month Uptown Showdown brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to go head-to-head on a variety of topics, 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 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.
