Uptown Showdown: Tortoise Vs. Hare

Description

In this battle of slowpokes versus speed demons, two teams of comics from the worlds of stand-up and late-night television fight about how civilization best makes progress. Should we carefully plod along, eating slow food while talking on flip phones? Or move fast and break things while alternating between espresso and ginger shots?

This installment features Matthew Broussard (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), Spike Einbinder (Los Espookys), Negin Farsad (Fake the Nation), Alison Leiby (It's a Long Story), Andre D Thompson (Slouch Theory) and Adam Wade (The Moth). Hosted by Matthew Love.

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.
