"Stand Up Sit Down” is a live stand-up comedy and sit-down interview show with special guest Elaine Brown hosted by socio-political comedians, Karinda Dobbins and Dhaya Lakshminarayanan. Imagine if renegade comedians locked Wolf Blitzer in a broom closet and then ran CNN’s “Situation Room.” You would have the Stand Up Sit Down” show. Hosts Dobbins and Lakshminarayanan will join fellow comics on stage to cover weighty topics with a light touch. The show will culminate in a humorous discussion between the hosts and a subversive interview guest, who might be an activist, entrepreneur, artist, politician, professor, or superhero.
