In this month’s contest, the Cult of Crossfit does battle with the Barons of the Binge-Watch. Should you do burpees, graze on kale, and journal about your soulful journey? Or is it best to recline, order Seamless, and send yourself into blissful oblivion on a cloud of Fuller House? Get the answer at this debate—if you can get off the couch.

This installment will include debaters Kevin Allison (Risk!), Emmy Blotnick (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), Kerry Coddett (On the Chopping Block), Peter Grosz (Veep), and more!

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.
