This August, it’s time to argue the age-old debate - Can Love Save Us? Armed with only their comedic genius, impeccable wit, and intellectual nous, two teams of Festival comedians battle it out to find the answer in The Great Comedy Debate of 2022 presented by national law firm, Lane Neave!
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: Love Will Save Us.
Keeping the show on the road as Moderator, we welcome the brilliant Kanoa Lloyd from THREE’s The Project, joined by:
Hayley Sproull – Host of Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Great Kiwi Bake-off and star of Golden Boy, Hayley is a natural contender and is back for her second Great Comedy Debate!
Dai Henwood – Star of 7Days and host of Lego Masters NZ, Dai is without a doubt a cheeky opponent, well known for using his smarts as well as sass.
Angella Dravid – Winner of Taskmaster NZ season one and Billy T Award winner, Angella has her own hot take on the world, is the master of long pauses and brilliantly funny truth bombs.
David Correos – breakout star of season two’s Taskmaster NZ, Billy T Award winner and 2021 Fred Award finalist, David’s joyous and chaotic comedy style is sure to bring some unexpected antics and big laughs to stage.
And introducing Lana Walters and Josh Thomson!
More clever and quick-witted comedian speakers to be announced soon!
It’s fast, factual (?) and funny as – with the audience deciding who’ll take the win on the night!
Join the audience and see it here first - this show will be filmed for audiences around the motu on THREE.
