BATTLE OF THE SUPERHEROES - THE GREAT SUPERHERO DEBATE
Following its huge debut success at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015, many comedians converge once more in Melbourne to find out who is the greatest superhero of them all. With a mixture of stand-up comedy and interactive debate, this is a fun show that can be enjoyed by geeks and non-geeks in equal measure.
With the huge success of The Avengers and the Batman trilogy, the return of the Amazing Spider-Man and Superman movies, and Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine making the A-list to name but a few, superheroes have never been so popular. We won't talk about the Fantastic Four movie though.
But who is the best?
Be part of this interactive, fun (but deadly serious!) comedy debate as a compere, adjudicator and four of the best comedians from around the Fringe converge in a verbal war of words in an endeavour to find out who is the greatest of them all.
★★★★ "This is such a fun and entertaining night where heckling is mildly encouraged, there are games in between rounds and prizes to be won. Even if you know nothing about superheroes, as I did, it is immensely funny to watch people pull “facts” out of their behind and make them sound possibly factual. A Super fun night!" (The Clothesline, Adelaide Fringe)
"This was a fun chance to discuss and laugh about what are often very ridiculous characters" (Rip It Up, Adelaide Fringe)

Saturdays & Sundays – April 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16 & 22. Final - April 23 - CLICK HERE TO BOOK TICKETS

Each show features more cheeky, hilarious stand-up comedy from the popular sell-out worldwide hit show that has had sell-out shows at Festivals and all over the UK, Asia, and across Australia in Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Darwin.
★★★★★ "Spectacular...amazing. The perfect way to close a night at The Festival (Funny Tonne, Melbourne)
★★★★★ "A brilliant tour-de-force of laughter-filled mischievous comedy” (Arts-In-Leicestershire, UK)
★★★★★ "Excellent" (Edinburgh Fringe Festival)
★★★★ “Possibly the best value show at the festival. Cannot recommend it enough (Herald Sun, Melbourne)
"Comedy Gold. A damn fun time" (Adelaide Now)
