The winner will be decided by the audience. Hosted by storyteller and comedian Tom Shillue. Sponsored by The Onion AV Club.
Uptown Showdown is a comedy debate series that tackles some of the most important issues of our time, such as which decade was the coolest-the eighties or the nineties, is cake really better than pie and who would win in a showdown pirates or ninjas? 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.
At this performance, fans will also be treated to a reading by Michael Ian Black from his new memoir You’re Not Doing it Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death and Other Humiliations. A book signing will follow the performance.
