Two peoples, one with spotty train service, the other with endless traffic jams, divided by a continent, united by their superior attitude to everyone in between. It's East Coast vs. West Coast. Brace yourself for a bicoastal battle royale.

This installment features Kenny DeForest (Comedy at the Knitting Factory), Chris Duffy (You're the Expert), John Fugelsang (Tell Me Everything), Zhubin Parang (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), Sydnee Washington (The UnOfficial Expert Podcast), and Kate Willett (The Jim Jeffries Show).

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.
