Uptown Showdown: Style Vs. Sweats


The year was 2020, and pantslessness was the norm. Buttons were verboten. Casual wear became formalwear, and formalwear became laughable. If the pandemic redefined fashion forever, what does it mean to have style? In 2021, should you Rent the Runway, or Buy the Tarzhay? Tonight’s comedic debaters are brave enough to put on pants and find out.

This installment features Alex Edelman (Just for Us), Mehran Khaghani (Last Comic Standing), Starlee Kine (Search Party), Dan McCoy (The Daily Show), Kenice Mobley (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), and Kate Willett (Reply Guys).

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 are subject to change.
