Uptown Showdown: Introverts vs. Extroverts


Masks are encouraged and appreciated, but not mandatory for this event.

Maybe you're the one at the party dancing, laughing, and hugging every new person you meet, or perhaps you're the person standing around wondering when it would be socially acceptable to go home. Who's to say which is better? Our two teams of comics will help you decide. Wallflowers and showboaters are all welcome. Led by special guest host Ophira Eisenberg (The Moth).

This installment features Chanel Ali (Girl Code), Gastor Almonte (The Sugar), Emmy Blotnick (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American Summer), Matt Koff (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), and Bassam Shawl (Brown Mirror Comedy).

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.
