Uptown Showdown: Neat Freaks vs. Pack Rats

3 Us Pack Mainevent 2021 2 3


Uptown Showdown gets personal as comedians Michael Ian Black (Wet Hot American Summer), Myq Kaplan (A.K.A), Chase Mitchell (The Tonight Show), Aparna Nancherla (Corporate), Kevin Townley (The Talent Show), and Kate Willett (Reply Guys) debate from their homes on a topic that invites plenty of show-and-tell.

After all: there are two ways to organize your life. One involves overstuffing your closets with old clothes, tax returns, and heaps of scrap metal in case you ever become a welder. The other involves ruling over your tidy, barren kingdom with a Swiffer and a maximum of anal-retentive glee. In this digital edition of our comedic debate series, the neatnik disciples of Marie Kondo square off against the hoarding heirs of the Beales of Grey Gardens.

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 subject to change. Due to scheduling conflicts, Maria Bamford and Kerry Coddett will no longer be appearing at this event.

Uptown Showdown : Neat Freaks vs. Pack Rats was broadcast live on October 29. Tickets are available to watch a recording of the live broadcast. Ticket holders may watch the recording through November 12.
