upcoming_micf great debate



9 April 2016

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.
