Humans vs. Machines

Kasparov vs. Deep Blue. Sarah Connor vs. the Terminator. Robert Smith vs. Mecha-Steisand. If history teaches us anything, it's that robots and people do not get along. Come see humankind make its final stand against automation, as two teams of New York's best comics debate which is superior: Humans or Machines?

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.

Voted "Best Comedy Show of 2012" by New York Magazine
