Arguments & Grievances makes its triumphant return to Los Angeles @ NerdMelt!

Arguments & Grievances is a live comedy series and podcast featuring comedians debating outlandish topics with audiences choosing the victor. An outrageous enterprise exploring the heated issues of the day, including: “Hugs vs. Drugs”, “Dr. Dre vs. Dr. Seuss”, and “Batman vs. Spiderman.”

The series and podcast is produced entirely by Chicago comedians Kevin White, Zach Peterson, and Kevin Brody. Half comedy show, half rhetorical fight to the death, Arguments & Grievances is an impressive showing of live comedy, absurdity, and engaging fun.

Solomon Georgio vs Will Weldon
Megan Gailey vs Dave Waite
The Puterbaugh Sisters vs Jordan Doll
Dave Ross vs Andrew Overdahl
