Uptown Showdown: Fight Vs. Flight


When confronted by a grizzly bear, a rabid dog or an in-law, you can do one of two things: Ball up your fists and holler, "Come get some," or run like you heard momma calling. Though this dilemma is predicated on some underlying danger, it also reveals something fundamental about human nature: Are you bold and confrontational or quick and elusive? Because at this debate, you can't stick your fingers in your ears and shout "Lalalala, I can't hear you!"

This installment features Kevin Allison (Risk!), Gina Brillon (The Floor Is Lava), Ophira Eisenberg (Ask Me Another), Jeff Hiller (Somebody Somewhere), Blythe Roberson (How to Date Men When You Hate Men), and Ikechukwu Ufomadu (Inspector Ike).

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 pet is superior--cats or dogs--and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? The verbal sparring and all-around absurdity stop only when the audience decides the winner. Hosted by Matthew Love.

Performers subject to change.
