Two teams of comics and comic writers face off in a debate competition meant to settle age-old arguments, such as whether pirates or ninjas would win in a brawl. As the performers take shots at each other and do untested material, the room gets charged (in the silliest way possible). The the subject matter may seem obscure, the guests have been anything but: faces like Janeane Garofalo, Kristen Schaal, Michael Showalter and Sasheer Zamata have gotten into the arguing spirit at past events.
