Armed with only their comedic genius, impeccable wit, and intellectual nous, two teams of comedians battle it out in Festival favourite The Great Comedy Debate of 2024!   

Come prepared for good points and dirty tactics, hot takes and wild yarns... and a fight to the debatable death over this year’s moot: Are Humans the Best Animals? 

To the role of Moderator, they welcome satirical genius, Robbie Nicol (White Man Behind A Desk, Best Newcomer Wellington - NZICF). Our formidable Team Captains are none other than Kura Forrester (2019 Billy T Winner, Shortland Street) and Josh Thomson (7 Days, Taskmaster NZ), rambunctiously supported by Laura Daniel (Taskmaster NZ, Celebrity Treasure Island, Two Hearts), and stars of 7 Days and Guy Montgomery’s Guy-Mont Spelling Bee, Becky Umbers (Guy Montgomery’s Guy-Mont Spelling Bee), Bailey Poching, and Jack Ansett.

It’s fast, factual (?) and funny as – with the audience deciding who’ll take the win on the night!

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
