Uptown Showdown: Moms vs. Dads


A Comedy Debate Series!

One feeds you chicken soup, tucks you in at night and hobbles your ability to form healthy, adult attachments. The other sends you into the woods with a knife and a beer, ordering you not to return until you’re CEO of a Fortune 500. But which is which? And which is better? Say goodbye to those cherished lies of childhood, because after this comedic Battle of the Begetters, only one “World’s Greatest” mug will remain in the kitchen cabinet.

This installment features Ophira Eisenberg (Ask Me Another), Naomi Ekperigin (Broad City), John Fugelsang (Tell Me Everything), Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Gabe Pacheco (Eat Pray Judge), and Shalewa Sharpe (HBO's 2 Dope Queens).

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.

This event is available to view with the Symphony Space 20/21 Season Pass.
