The Australia Day debate will be well and truly in the spotlight at a star-studded stand-up comedy gig this January 26. Emceed by Judith Lucy and Uncle Jack Charles, the Reconciliation Comedy Gala will feature a who's who of Aussie comedians raising money for a worthwhile cause. Expect plenty of laughs — some of them fairly uncomfortable — as a roster of funny folk tackle the furore around our divisive national day.

The gala kicks off at 2.30pm at Malthouse Theatre in Southbank. Wil Anderson, Tom Ballard, Anne Edmonds and Hannah Gadsby are but a few of the comedians who'll take the stage that afternoon, alongside performers from the Koori Youth Will Shake Spears Dance Group.

Proceeds from the gala will go to the City of Yarra's Stolen Generations Marker project. The artist commissioned to create the monument, which will pay tribute to the Stolen Generations, will be announced at the event.
