New Zealand Comedy Trust & Lane Neave present
The Great Comedy Debate

Two teams of comedians battle it out to prove their point, their comedic genius and their intellectual superiority.  

Come prepared for good points, hot takes and wild yarns over the most debatable moot of the moment: Technology will save us!

Watch this comedic battle of wits live in action. Hosted by the sharp-witted and wise moderator Te Radar, joined by:

  • Hayley Sproull – host of TVNZ’s Have You Been Paying Attention? and star of Golden Boy
  • Laura Daniel – One half of Two Hearts, and as seen on Seven Sharp and Dancing With The Stars
  • Joseph Moore – Other half of Two Hearts, and regular on 7 Days and Jono & Ben
  • Guy Montgomery – Co-host of Worst Idea of All Time podcast and as seen on Have You Been Paying Attention? 
  • Jamaine Ross – One third of sketch comedy trio Frickin Dangerous Bro and Jono & Ben and Funny Girls regular

  • Alice Canton – Member of late night improv fave SNORT and founder of White_mess theatre company

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

Made possible with the generous support of Lane Neave.
