Pop culture is on trial in this wickedly funny eight-part show hosted by the shameless Lewis Black.
Each 20 minute episode pits two comedians against each other to make the case for which is worse. And no matter who loses, Lewis always wins.
Each program features the following: a fiery monologue by Black introducing the topics; ‘Opening Statements’ – comedians state their case; ‘Debate’ – comedians provide verbal and video evidence to bolster their case and try to debunk each other’s theories; ‘Inquisition’ – Black grills the comedians; ‘Ripple of Evil’ – comedians predict the dire consequences that will ensue if their evil is left unchecked; ‘Closing Statements’ – comedians hit their message home; and ‘Final Verdict’ – Black renders his decision.
This week it is the turn of Strip Clubs vs. Sororities. Sororities are run by snobs, but Strip Clubs are run by the mob. Which is worse: Marrying a preppie named Chip or working for a pimp named Raul? Climbing the social ladder, or working the pole? To decide, Greg Giraldo and Kathleen Madigan square off in the court of the Honorable Judge Lewis Black, the ultimate evaluator or evil.
