Co­me­di­ans cover the big is­sues

Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Festival’s Great De­bate, ABC Com­edy, Sunday at 8.30pm

The Western Star - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

IN THE Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Festival’s 29th an­nual Great De­bate, the sharpest tools in the com­edy shed will once again take to the stage for the ul­ti­mate com­pe­ti­tion of minds and mirth.

Six com­pet­i­tive co­me­di­ans will bat­tle it out us­ing laughs, logic and all man­ner of wily words to prove their team supreme.

How will this year’s de­baters fare when faced with a tricky topic, an ar­dent ad­ju­di­ca­tor and some se­ri­ously stiff com­pe­ti­tion?

This is where crit­i­cal think­ing and comic tim­ing col­lide.

Aussie com­edy le­gend Magda Szuban­ski (pic­tured) hosts.
