Will have you in tears of laughter
Melbourne's improv comedy gurus, the Big HOO-HAA!, return to the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The festival kicks off on the 27th March and runs for three and a half weeks at various venues within the city of Melbourne.

The Big HOO-HAA! who regularly perform on Friday nights at the Butterfly Club, will deliver three new, exciting shows for the Melbourne Comedy Festival at the Melbourne Town Hall. Each Monday night a different themed show is set; horror, musicals and romance. These popular genres provide the basis of the show and allow the audience to use their vivid imaginations and take those wild ideas to the next level.

Two teams of savvy comedians battle head to head using audience suggestions as inspiration. Their hilarious quick wit to concoct an amusing story with entertaining characters in the process is astounding. Humorous personalities and side-splitting anecdotes engage an enthralled audience.

No two shows are the same! Hence the benefit of impromptu comedy. Scenes are set with no script or lines needed. Spontaneous and sharp-witted talent present an original production each and every time. These comic geniuses are on the ball with intelligent puns and clever one-liners.

The Spooky Show is the first of three productions for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The night begins immediately with full audience participation, throwing out various horror-themed prompts. The comedy combat commences between the Black Crossbones Team and the Red Love Hearts Team. Alongside a combination of ideas of spooky skeletons, severed limbs and silly sing star battles, the jokes and puns are endless. Who will win the impromptu comedy clash by the end of the night?

With non-stop laughter guaranteed, make sure you check out the remaining two shows by The Big HOO-HAA! on Monday 8th April for The Singing Show and Monday 15th April for The Sexy Show.

The Big HOO-HAA! stars some of Melbourne's funniest improvisers. The cast includes Lee Naimo (The Axis of Awesome), Gillian Cosgriff (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Dan Debuf (Dan and Maz), Elly Squire (Clara Cupcakes), Josh Glanc (Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chamedian), Jason Geary (the iSelect Guy), Andrew McClelland (Piece of Wood award winner) and many more.
