The Big HOO-HAA!

Two teams of fearless comedians battle it out using wit, humour and bad mime skills to win your love, applause and the coveted HOO-HAA trophy.

THE BIG HOO-HAA! & THE LITTLE HOO-HAA!

Two formats of HOO-HAA featuring the same talented, hilarious teams depending on the audiences.

THE BIG HOO-HAA!

If theatre and stand up comedy met one night in a smoky bar and after a few drinks found themselves in a compromising position in the back of a clapped out ’67 Volks Wagon, the result of this sordid tryst would be The Big HOO-HAA! The Big HOO-HAA! is a night of comedy that will help you forget your troubles and have you laughing out loud from start to finish. In the style of “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and “Thank God You’re Here”, The Big HOO-HAA! sees two teams of fearless comedians take the stage to do battle in a competition of wit, humour and bad mime skills in an effort to win the coveted HOO-HAA Trophy. It’s a no holds barred race to the punch line.

This is an interactive show that uses the audience suggestions to create improvised comedy sketches. The show is completely improvised therefore every performance is wonderfully unique and created just for you! The Big HOO-HAA! Crew have performed to thousands of people in Western Australia (and franchised in Melbourne and Broome) , with weekly shows at the Rosemount Hotel and gigs for numerous corporate clients.

THE LITTLE HOO-HAA!

The Little HOO-HAA! is improvised comedy at its finest and funniest. Using audience suggestions we create spontaneous story, sketches and silliness. After nearly 20 years of providing Perth adults with improv comedy we decided to give the kids a turn – 3 years on and the laughs keep coming!

​​​​​​​Interactive, engaging and hilarious, The Little HOO-HAA! is big laughs for little people.
