Nothing will remain sacred when the ‘bombastically liberal’ Rick Molland (ThreeWeeks) meets the ‘shamelessly shocking’ Sully O'Sullivan (Australian Times) in this stand-up comedy face-off on Freedom of Speech, where low blows aren't just legal, they're encouraged.

Over 5 rounds of punchline pugilism Molland & Sullivan will trade joke for joke, gag for gag, argument for argument on the subject of Free Speech, and at the end of it all, the audience will be the judge. It's time to choose sides!

"Hard-hitting, no-holds-barred comedy"
Edinburgh Evening News

"pricking the pomposity of the powerful... A Daily Show vibe"
Fest Magazine

“demonstrated no subject ought to be off-limits if handled intelligently and originally."
The Scotsman

Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016: 10 Spoken Word Performances To Catch
Spoiler alert — this is one hell of a comedy show and will leave tongues wagging. “Freedom Of Speech” quite rightly has no boundaries whatsoever (or censors for that matter). Imagine a monk and a professional wrestler. Throw them in a room together and watch them go at it. This should give you a sense of what to expect. Social barriers will dissipate as Rick Molland and Sully O’Sullivan go head-to-head in an epic stand-up comedy battle about freedom of speech. Expect lots of riveting political talk and blunt opinions. Click Here

Best of political comedy: Being a politician is no joke. Oh yes, it is!
Liverpudlian motor-mouth Rick Molland teams up with energetic New Zealander Sully Sullivan in a no-holds-barred comedy face-off where opinions are shared, insults exchanged and gags are traded. The audience are involved in the show throughout, and there has been one show already this Fringe where one audience member took part too enthusiastically. Suffice it to say, Molland and Sullivan will now have incorporated that incident into the show. Click Here
