This program was recorded 03/10/2015 at Symphony Space.

This installment of the bi-monthly, wacky debate series features Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver), Mike O'Brien (Saturday Night Live), Dave Hill (This American Life, The Goddam Dave Hill Show on WFMU), Sheng Wang (John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show), Victor Varnado (Iron Mule, Comedy Central), Brooke Van Poppelen (Hack My Life on Tru Tv), and more. The series 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?

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 a good way. Winner decided by the audience.
