About Uptown Showdown: Realists vs. Optimists

While optimists see the sunny side, realists know excess UV exposure leads to skin cancer. During this Uptown Showdown, limitless potential meets the bottom line. And no, realists aren’t pessimists—they just know positive thinking alone won’t fix global warming.

This installment features Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American Summer), Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight), 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.
