Uptown Showdown: Naughty vs. Nice

Us Naughty Mainevent 2021 3


“He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake…” No matter the holiday you celebrate, the specter of St. Nick looms over December. But is it better to behave for the promise of a brand-new bike, or is full-out naughtiness worth a lump of coal? Join six comics as they debate whether the jolly fat man’s rubric of reward and punishment is really all it's cracked up to be.

This installment features Catherine Cohen (God I Feel Modern Tonight), Calise Hawkins (Hood Adjacent), Dave Hill (The Dave Hill Goodtime Hour), Mehran Khaghani (Last Comic Standing), Adam Lowitt (The Daily Show), and Blythe Roberson (How to Date Men When You Hate Men).

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.
