      Uptown Showdown: The Eighties Vs. The Aughts

      Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre

      Ah, the ’80s: life was simple, hair was big. Then again, there was Reagan, yuppies, and Alf. The ’00s gave us global connectivity . . . and Justin Bieber. So where’s the beef? How best to avoid FOMO? Find out at this ultimate brawl between two decades, both of which we’re already nostalgic for. This installment features debaters Isabel Hagen (Just for Laughs New Face of Comedy 2019), Dave Hill (The Goddamn Dave Hill Show), Mehran Khaghani (Last Comic Standing), Gabe Pacheco (Eat Pray Judge), Jes Tom (Reductress), and Adam Wade (winner of 20 SLAMS at The Moth).

      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.

      Please note: Due to scheduling conflicts, Dulcé Sloan and Ophira Eisenberg will no longer be appearing at this event.
