Uptown Showdown: Flying v. Invisibility

Uptown Showdown: Flying v. Invisibility

October 05, 2017, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre

Which superpower would you choose? Come on, you know you've thought about it. On the one hand, imagine how much money you'd save if you could fly for free. On the other, if you're invisible, you could sneak into movies without having to pay. No doubt every superhero grapples with just such questions. Lucky for us, we have two teams of well researched, and well informed comedians who will make the definitive case for whether it's better to fly too close to the sun, or hide in plain sight. You never know what to expect at this bi-monthly, wacky debate series that brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to argue a chosen topic, such as which pet is superior cats or dogs and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable? Debaters will argue these lingering questions, drawing from historical fact and personal-opinion in equal measure, and with plenty of silliness and audience participation. 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. Winner decided by the audience. Hosted by Matthew Love.  This event features Michael Ian Black, Dave Hill, Dana Gould, Akilah Hughes, Janeane Garofalo, and Joel Kim Booster!!
