About Uptown Showdown

Nightclubs! Culture! Bedbugs! Open Sky! Baby Animals! Abject Loneliness! Uptown Showdown pits the proverbial City Mouse against the Country Mouse to find out whose life is better. And we’re not ruling out an onstage game of chicken between a taxicab and a wheat thresher.

This installment features Kerry Coddett (On the Chopping Block), and more!

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 only stop when the audience decides the winner. Hosted by Matthew Love.

Performers subject to change.
