overview



Which superpower would you choose? Come on, you know you've thought about it. On the one hand, imagine how much money you'd save if you could fly for free. On the other, if you're invisible, you could sneak into movies without having to pay. No doubt every superhero grapples with just such questions. Lucky for us, we have two teams of very opinionated comedians, including Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American Summer), Myq Kaplan (Last Comic Standing finalist), Joel Kim Booster (Conan), Akilah Hughes (It's Akilah, Obviously!), Michael Ian Black (Wet Hot American Summer), and Dana Gould (The Simpsons), who will make the definitive case for whether it's better to fly too close to the sun, or hide in plain sight.

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. Hosted by Matthew Love.

Due to a schedule conflict, Dave Hill will no longer be debating at this show.
