Uptown Showdown: The Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones

3 The Beatles Vs The Rolling Stones Main Image 1 Symphony Space


Is today a Good Day, Sunshine, or would you rather Paint It Black? This debate pits the cheery, heartfelt pop of the Beatles against the cocksure swagger of the Stones. Come, laugh, and vote for your favorite—but keep in mind: You Can't Always Get What You Want. This installment features Carolyn Castiglia (Right NOW! with Carolyn Castiglia), Karen Chee (writer for Late Night with Seth Meyers), John Fugelsang (Tell Me Everything), Peter Grosz (The President Show), Dave Hill (The Goddamn Dave Hill Show), and Carmen Lynch (Inside Amy Schumer).

The popular comedy debate series invites two teams of funny folks from the worlds of stand-up and late-night television to tackle topics of great importance to pop culture, such as which pets are superior, cats or dogs, and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? The verbal sparring and all-around absurdity only stops when the audience chooses the winner. Hosted by Matthew Love.
