The Great Debate

Join us every month as some of the best stand up comedians in the New York City area debate some the questions we all want answered while making you laugh, whether it be standing up vs sitting down, delivering weed vs delivering a baby, honey mustard vs spicy honey mustard...which one is better?  This is the only show where the crowd is encouraged to participate as the audience is asked to choose the winner of the debate and have these questions we've all been pondering answered.  That's not it though folks, the Great Debate Variety Hour also features sketches and performances from some of your favorite stand up comedians.  

December's show features debates from:
Nick Naney vs Brad Austin
Mitt Romney vs Santa Claus - Who is more fake?

Doug Smith vs Jessica Watkins
Rock Climbing vs Rock Smoking Which is more dangerous?
