It’s the show that began the burgeoning careers of Tim Minchin (So Rock), Claire Hooper (Good News Week) and Xavier Michelides (Rove), and since July 2010 The Big HOO-HAA! has been wowing Melbourne audiences with its special blend of high energy, improvised comedy, storytelling, singing and one-liners; all designed to make you howl with laughter.
Two teams (the Hearts and the Bones) battle it out armed with only audience suggestions as they leave no song unsung, no joke undelivered and no pun unpunished in their mad dash for the punch line.
Each 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival show will feature some of Australia’s best improvisers alongside experienced comedians with an established Festival profile. The show will follow the successful formula that has seen The Big HOO-HAA! run for more than nine years in Perth, plus our weekly show right here in Melbourne that has been running strong for over a year.
