Six comedians. Two sides. One topic. One host with not a hope of keeping things under control.

It’s the 27th annual Great Debate!

Roll up to the Melbourne Town Hall for the Festival’s biggest battle of the brains, as two teams of local and international comedy heavyweights argue, rant, beg, cheat and steal to reign supreme. The topic will be divisive and contentious, and the comedy hard-hitting and shamelessly antagonistic.

The past has seen US comedian Rich Hall ride into the Melbourne Town Hall on a camel and UK comedian Paul Foot attempt to launch himself into space from the auditorium.

So step right up and witness comedy’s colossal contest, where the Festival’s funniest lock horns to debate the world’s big questions.

Melbourne Town Hall

11 April

Three comedians on each side, one in the middle trying to wrangle them, an ever-divisive topic and much malarkey.

This is the 26th Annual Great Debate, a one-off experience where two teams of local and international stars of the comedy scene take the stage at the Melbourne Town Hall to argue, yell, sing, abuse and shamelessly attempt to upstage one another in the name of competitive comedy.

The past has seen US comedian Rich Hall ride into the Melbourne Town Hall on a camel and UK comedian Paul Foot attempt to launch himself into space from the auditorium.

Join us at this annual battle of brains and wit as the world’s loopiest funny people make us laugh and potentially, (hopefully) solve a great debate.
