Cut Snake Comedy present, as a part of the 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

The Big HOO-HAA!

It's the show that began the burgeoning careers of Tim Minchin, Claire Hooper and Xavier Michelides, and now The Big HOO-HAA! is bringing its unique brand of improvised comedy and manic satire to the 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Running from 30 March - 23 April at The Order of Melbourne, watch as two teams of fearless comedians battle it out against each other to create comedy sketches on the spot.

Started in Perth in 2002 by Cut Snake Comedy, The Big HOO-HAA! quickly gained a regular following. Nine years later the show sells out every week in Perth, and last year was successfully launched in Melbourne. It is the only show in Australia that has ongoing weekly performances running in two states.

In a nutshell, The Big HOO-HAA! is an hour long competition between two teams - the Hearts and the Bones. Armed with only audience suggestions and a handful of props, they leave no song unsung, no joke undelivered and no pun unpunished in their mad dash for the punch line!

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 Volkswagon, the result of this sordid tryst would be The Big HOO-HAA!

A cracking night of flat out improvised comedy." - The Groggy Squirrel
