Debate is a joke

Comedian Jonathon Atherton will argue about size at the Great Comedy Debate at the Big Joke Comedy Festival in Bangalow next month.

The Big Joke Comedy Festival brings the finest comedians in the country together and asks them to ponder the premise Bigger is Better in the first Great Comedy Debate.

Fresh from Brisbanes most popular breakfast radio, the big boy of Aussie comedy, Greg Sullivan, is sure to have the other team on the ropes. Jonathon Atherton is a firm believer that small is beautiful, particularly when it comes to the male anatomy. Anthony Morgan has come out of his Tasmanian semi-retirement to re-launch his career. He makes his way back to the spotlight to chair the debate. Joining them in the hot seat will be Fiona McGary, Brendan Lovechild, Nick Sun and Elissa Hawke.

The Big Joke also boasts three impressive headline shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 14, 15 and 16.
