At the next installment of the wacky debate series, a team including Hot Tub's Kristen Schaal (30 Rock and Flight of the Concords) and Kurt Braunohler (host of IFC's new comedy game show Bunk) face off against a team led by Christian Finnegan (VH1's Best Week Ever) with Myq Kaplan (Last Comic Standing) and Bob Powers (Happy Cruelty Day) in this quirky take-off on the old school debate team. Hosted by Matthew Love (Comedy Editor Time Out New York). Uptown Showdown was voted "Best Comedy Show" in 2012 by New York Magazine!
Every other month Uptown Showdown brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to go head-to-head on a variety of topics, such as which pet is superior cats or dogs and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? Debaters will argue these lingering questions, drawing from historical fact and personal opinion in equal measure, and with plenty of audience participation. Forget about school reform and health care, these issues, heatedly argued by some of the funniest, smartest, intensely wacky creative thinkers around, are the topics that keep us awake at night....in a good way. The winner is decided by the audience.
