UPTOWN SHOWDOWN: NEAT FREAKS VS. PACK RATS (SPONSORED)

THE POPULAR COMEDY DEBATE SERIES RETURNS!!!
(virtually)

Uptown Showdown gets personal as comedians Michael Ian Black (Wet Hot American Summer), Kerry Coddett (The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show), Chase Mitchell (The Tonight Show), Aparna Nancherla (Corporate), and Kevin Townley (The Talent Show) debate from their homes on a topic that invites plenty of show-and-tell. 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 a scheduling conflict, Maria Bamford will no longer be appearing at this event.
