Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Following its hugely successful tours in 2015, 2016 and 2017 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, improvisation and interactive debate, this is a fun show that can be enjoyed by geeks and non-geeks in equal measure.

There has been huge success in recent years with The Avengers, X-Men, Batman trilogy, Spider Man’s recent homecoming and the new Superman movies. There’s also the amazing growth in Marvel’s movie universe, and DCs burgeoning roster of movies and TV shows. Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Wonder Woman, Deadpool and even Guardians of the Galaxy and Groot have made it to the A-list to name but a few. Superheroes have never been so popular.

We won't talk about the Fantastic Four movie though.

But most importantly, 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 Festival 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

'This was a fun chance to discuss and laugh about what are often very ridiculous characters. ★★★★' Rip It Up
