Battle of the Superheroes: The Great Superhero Debate

Comedy / Comedy
Scaled super 2017

Many comedians converge once again in Adelaide to find out who is the greatest superhero of them all. With a mixture of stand-up comedy and interactive debate, this fun show 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.

★★★★ "Such a fun and entertaining night... Even if you know nothing about superheroes, as I did, it is immensely funny. A Super fun night!" Clothesline, Adelaide
