While the Republican presidential candidates have been arguing issues such as the economy and national security, the participants of the Uptown Showdown, presented by the Onion AV Club, have been taking on far more pressing questions such as, “Which was the cooler—the ’80s or the ’90s?” and “Are dogs better than cats?” Tonight’s topic will be “Old Hollywood vs. New Hollywood” with debaters Dave Hill (This American Life contributor); writer-comedian Gabe Delahaye; Gabe Liedman and Max Silvestri (both of the comedy show “The Big Terrific”); Julie Klausner (host of the podcast “How Was Your Week?”); and stand-up comedian Jessi Klein.
