The premise is pretty simpleā€“ two people each hail one of the ride-sharing cars from the same spot and see how long it takes to get to their destination. But the comedians putting the ā€œraceā€ together have promised me thereā€™s a twist. Something about finding the Backstreet Boys on the way?

This is coming to us live via comedy crew Super Deluxe, the same outfit that live-streamed how long itā€™d take their car to get a parking ticket. Comedians DJ Douggpound and Brent Weinbach will be hosting and providing commentary to, presumably, make watching two taxi rides a little more exciting.

Other than that I have no idea whatā€™s going to happen. I guess, thatā€™s the point of being live.
