Now that we’ve Zoom dated and worked from home is it really worth doing anything in person? Two teams of comics help us decide whether to ever appear in 3D again.
This installment features Ariel Elias (Jimmy Kimmel Live!), Negin Farsad (Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!), Mehran Khaghani (Last Comic Standing), Shane Torres (Conan), 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 only stop when the audience decides the winner. Hosted by Matthew Love.
