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. In this special NY Super Week edition featuring Janeane Garofalo, Michael Hartney (I Love Superman at UCB), Travon Free (The Daily Show), Jessica Delfino (New York Funny Songs Festival), Joe Garden (The Onion) and Nick Turner (Best Week Ever)the defenders of justice battle it out with the criminal masterminds. Which are more badass? Those characters we love, or love to hate?

This event is SOLD OUT.  A limited amount of tickets may be released at the door.  Get tickets for the  next show on October 20.

 

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.

*This event is part of New York Super Week
