Uptown Showdown: Family vs Friends

Absurd debates with The Daily Show writers and alt-comedy stars

Cats vs dogs, comfort vs style, these age-old topics are all fair game at Uptown Showdown, the hilariously offbeat dialogue series. Sticking to your typical high school’s rigid speech and debate format, they'll have the best comedians, writers, and performers drawing from historical fact and personal opinion to drive home their points. This installment features an all-star cast of David Rees (Going Deep with David Rees), Lizz Winstead (co-creator of The Daily Show), Jena Friedman (The Daily Show writer), Opus Moreschi (head writer at The Colbert Report), Elna Baker (This American Life) and Kevin Townley (The Talent Show Brand Variety Show). Over 18s only.
