Battle of the Superheroes: The Great Superhero Debate


Following its huge success at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015 & 2016, 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 movies, making A-listers of Captain America and Iron Man, Spider-Man coming home to Marvel, Deadpool cutting and cursing his way into the spotlight and of course the divided opinion about Batman v Superman and other DC movies, superheroes have never been so talked about.  

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)
