Opus Moreschi in ‘Uptown Showdown: The Past vs The Future’

Six Degrees of Stephen Colbert You never know what to expect at this bi-monthly, wacky debate series that brings together two teams of comedians, writers and performers to face-off on a chosen topic, such as which pet is superior cats or dogs and is it better to be comfortable or fashionable?

The next installment features Chris Gethard (host of the popular The Chris Gethard Show), the new head writer for The Colbert Report Opus Moreschi, comedic musician Jessica Delfino and Baratunde Thurston, former staff member at The Onion and author of The New York Times bestseller How to Be Black. Hosted by Matthew Love (Time Out New York). Stay tunned for more performers!

Debaters will argue these lingering questions, drawing from historical fact and personal opinion in equal measure, and with plenty of sillinesss 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.
