Cross the date in your diary because all eyes will be on Melbourne for the cleverest day on the comedy calendar as legends of funny go head-to-head for The 25th Annual Great Debate.

A sell-out event of the Festival each year, the Great Debate will see two teams of comics battle in a duel over comedy and wit in the debate that stops the nation.

This year’s topic and comedians will be revealed in March, but after 25 years of antics, we’ve witnessed famously funny people shamefully put their body (and comedic reputation) on the line, with past topics including: Ignorance is Bliss, Money Is The Root Of All Evil and Food is Better Than Sex.

Last year, comedy legends Paul Foot, Paul McDermott, Eddie Pepitone, Cal Wilson, Josh Thomas and Rich Hall fought it out over the topic Actions speak louder than words. Paul McDermott stole the show and used the physical comedy connoisseurs employed by the negative team to derail his speech to an advantage. A bondage-clad woman showcasing her fire-spitting strap-on, highlighted Paul’s point for the affirmative, actions really do speak louder than words.

They have been weighed and they have been measured, but who will reign supreme in this not–to-be-missed, unpredictable, comedy showdown?

The 2014 Great Debate will be filmed by Network Ten and will screen later this year.
