overview

You never know what to expect at this bi-monthly, wacky debate series that brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to face-off on a chosen topic, such as which pet is superior cats or dogs and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable?

This installment features Bonnie McFarlane (Last Comic Standing),  Josh Gondelman (@SeinfeldToday), Carolyn Castiglia (Comedy Central; Babble.com), Eliza Skinner (Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell), Bridey Elliott (Funny or Die) and The New Yorker contributors Simon Rich (The Last Girlfriend on Earth: And Other Love Stories) Farley Katz in honor of their new book The Married Kama Sutra.  Hosted by Kevin Townley

Debaters will argue these lingering questions, drawing from historical fact and personal opinion in equal measure, and with plenty of sillinesss 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.
