Uptown Showdown Debate: Are We Getting Dumber? vs. Are We Getting Smarter? with Maria Bamford, W. Kamau Bell, Dave Hill, T.J. Miller, Aparna Nancherla, Greg Proops and host Jared Logan

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Uptown Showdown, a unique and quirky spin-off on school debate events, two teams of comedians will square off to argue which side of some arbitrary topic is BETTER. Debaters Maria Bamford, W. Kamau Bell, Dave Hill, T.J. Miller, Aparna Nancherla, Greg Proops and moderator Jared Logan  will go head-to-head to tackle what will clearly be one of the most important issues of our time, and you the audience will decide the winner! $30 All Ages

Because of a change in schedule due to his recent Oscar nomination, Jeff Garlin will no longer be appearing at SF Sketchfest. Greg Proops has been added to the show.
