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 a good way. Winner decided by the audience. Hosted by Matthew Love.

            Evolution backwards
            Gen X
            Gen X went outside and did stuffs with their friends...
            Millennials got trophies for participating...
            Snowflakes want safe space...

              What the fuck are you on? You act as if it’s millennials fault for getting participation trophies. Tell me which generation made participation trophies and designed the school system to reward participation. Gen x did that. Also millennials have it harder and most other generations. You have to go bankrupt to get a decent education

            Gen X had MySpace and Windows 95 & 98, MapQuest, cell phones...
            Millennials just took the inventions and called theirs...
            Windows 7 &10
            Google map
            Last but not least iPhone...

                          He says F this F that yet he is Asian. I feel so ashamed since I am Chinese. He is cheap comedian. Look Joe Wong never says one dirty word. I am proud Joe Wang is a Chinese. I hope this guy is not an Chinese.

                            Ashamed of what? Being Chinese doesn’t give you the position to justify your nonsense. I’m Chinese and I find him incredibly funny and talented.

                            What do you mean by ‘ yet he’s an asian’ anyways? Asians also cuss and there’s no problems to it. Stop being such a hypocrite.

                            Millennials: Worst, least original music, least original fashion, first generation to party LESS hard than previous generation, most selfish generation, most conceited, most whiny, and least self-sufficient. I kid, I kid, just using stereotypes. I'm actually hoping you guys save the animals and the planet. My gen is too tiny and cynical and we have no faith in humanity and as you get older (every generation) you care less about anything but (money) your family (money) and yourself (money). Everybody thinks it won't happen to them, but it does for most. I really hope you guys can turn it around, but I can't help but think it'll be more of the same. Humanity (on the whole) is too selfish an unwilling to sacrifice comfort or money or stop fuckin breeding to stop our self-destructive ways. All of us are killing the planet and all the innocent, feeling, living beings on it. We suck. All of us. “I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am.”

                                      As much as I dislike "reboots" they should reboot Alf for a season or to and give himna proper send off. The original series ended rather shittly, with Alf being halled off by the ATF and tbe Tanner family looking all dumbfounded (as if it were a cliffhanger which was just left hanging off the cliff).

                                        Man it’s hard enough coming up with cogent arguments on the spot but to make them funny too? Goes to show how well of a writer you have to be to make it as a standup comedian

                                          Picking on Yahoo and Netscape but not talking about Google and Firefox? Literally everything those retarded, degenerated Millennials love today is just an evolution of a ground-breaking innovation a Gen Xer came up with. Have some more avocado toast and STFU.

                                              So typical. So sad that Gen Z has to have you guys have their boss. People who could never pay their dues are going to be whinny and tyrannical boss. No concept of leadership in millennial. There is a good reason why both Gen X and Gen Z hate Gen Y.
