After sold out shows for their previous Great Debates at Sketchfest, Ms. Ilyse Mimoun and Mr. Matt Price continue their ten-year old feud with their latest debate about the beloved film Revenge of the Nerds. With studied deference to truth, justice, (and possibly a medley from Les Miz), Price and Mimoun will plumb the depths of Lewis and Gilbert's psyches, jumping fearlessly into topics such as “Sex, Lies & Videotape,” “Ogre’s Lament,” and “The National Tri-Lams Don’t Give a Fuck.” Are the Tri-Lams brave pioneers of Silicon Valley or sexual predators with bifocals? Is the Omega Mu sorority a safe haven for future Hillary Clintons, or merely a sad repository for neglected nerdettes?

As always, the lucky audience chooses the debate topics each night with new topics added on the second night! In conclusion...are you ready for the sex, girls? Scratch that. Are you ready for the truth, America? $18
