Breakfast vs Dinner

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 Joe DeRosa (The Pete Holmes Show, Louie), Brooks Wheelan (Saturday Night Live), Jen Kirkman (Chelsea LatelyDrunk History), Sheng Wang (John Oliver's NY Stand Up Show), Michelle Buteau (Best Week Ever), and Dave Hill (This American Life, Tasteful Nudes). Hosted by Kevin Townley (The Talent Show Brand Variety Show).

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.
