Clink de­bates all the hot top­ics

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Jessie Tol­son

FOR­GET the 2013 po­lit­i­cal de­bates, the 2013 Great Com­edy De­bate is upon us and prom­ises to ar­gue an im­por­tant is­sue.

The gloves are off and two teams of ex­perts in their fields will go head to head to ar­gue the case of whether Money Buys Hap­pi­ness.

Watch as the teams bat­tle it out for the ti­tle of 2013 Great­est De­baters, in hi­lar­i­ous style.

The teams will at­tempt to pro­vide some log­i­cal con­sis­tency and fac­tual ac­cu­racy along with a de­gree of emo­tional ap­peal to the au­di­ence through their skills of per­sua­sion.

The Pro team will be made up of Ben Rad­ford, Malea Turn­bull and Roy Weaver, while the Neg­a­tive team will see David Mor­ri­son, Za Har­richa­ran and Todd Mal­one line up to ar­gue their point.

Co­me­dian Matt Mann will MC the event and not keep the teams in­line.

Bribes are ex­pected, nu­dity has been threat­ened and those in the panel feel that com­edy will be the win­ner.

The out­come of the de­bate will be de­cided by au­di­ence vote and bla­tant break­ing of the rules by the teams is to­tally ac­cept­able.

Pro­ducer Claire Tier­ney said this is one event you won’t want to miss.

‘‘This is a great event sup­ported by many who don’t usu­ally at­tend the theatre,’’ she said.

‘‘They come for the hu­mour and au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion.

‘‘The top­ics cre­ate a great amount of af­ter show ban­ter and the crowd hang around to en­joy the at­mos­phere well af­ter the show is over.’’

The Great Com­edy De­bate is one of the fun­ni­est events on the 2013 cal­en­dar.
