Uptown Showdown: Humans vs. AI


Artificial Intelligence is suddenly everywhere. It's creating art, doing teenagers' homework, even writing this promotional copy! I am laughing out loud now 1000101ERROR. At this comic debate, humans try to prove they're still relevant in a world of chatbots looking to take their jobs and/or their spouses.

This installment features John Fugelsang (Tell Me Everything), Matt Goldich (Late Night with Seth Meyers), Aminah Imani (Comedy Central), Ely Kreimendahl (Shame Spiral), Mark Normand (Inside Amy Schumer), and Justin Williams (Fraudsters).

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 only stop when the audience decides the winner. Hosted by Matthew Love.
