It sounds good in theory. But we’re joined by some of New Zealand’s sharpest comedians and wittiest commentators as they battle it out to seek the truth about reaching that Four Zero milestone.
The razor-sharp Paul Ego, Michele A’Court and Mayor Tim Shadbolt may have plastic surgery and increasing life-expectancy to boost their arguments, but the likes of Oliver Driver, Jesse Mulligan and Jacinda Ardern won’t go down without a fight!
Keeping the crew in line and on topic, moderator Jeremy Corbett will crown the winners and decide – once and for all – if life truly does begin at forty.
