Uptown Showdown: Sweet vs. Savory

2 Sweetvssavory Main 1 Symphony Space


Forget sour and umami — which we think is a kind of sushi — when it comes to shoving unhealthy food into one's pie hole, there are only two basic cravings. Tonight, we find out whether crunchy, crackling, salty snacks or moist, chewy, sugary treats are the superior repast.

The popular comedy debate series invites two teams of funny folks from the worlds of stand-up and late-night television including Myq Kaplan (Small, Dork, and Handsome), Sarah Nowak (Pit House improv team The Baldwins), Eric Slovin (Broad City), Jes Tom (Reductress), Kevin Townley (The Talent Show Brand Variety Show), and Kate Willett (The Comedy Lineup) to tackle topics of great importance to pop culture, such as which pets are superior, cats or dogs, and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? The verbal sparring and all-around absurdity only stops when the audience chooses the winner. Hosted by Matthew Love.

Due to a scheduling conflict, Elna Baker will no longer be appearing at this event.
