Ronny Chieng at Uptown Showdown - Millennials vs. Gen-X
- Published: 21 October 2018
- The only thing worse than being called aloof underachievers is being replaced by coddled crybabies. Two maligned generations face off to prove which one is superior: the slackers of Generation X or the digital natives of the Millennial crowd. This installment features debaters Rosebud Baker (Two Less Lonely Girls), Ronny Chieng (The Daily Show, Crazy Rich Asians), Jessica Delfino (Funny Songs Festival), Christian Finnegan (The Fun Part), Dylan Marron (Conversations with People Who Hate Me), and Yedoye Travis (Dark Tank).
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.
