Get ready for an MICF Brouhaha with The Big Hoo-Haa

Melbourne audiences have 19 chances to see The Big HOO-HAA! in action at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival this year.

The improvised comedy shows will be performed from 28 March to 21 April 2012 at The Roxanne Parlour throughout the festival.

The Big HOO-HAA! gave rise to the careers of Tim Minchin (So Rock), Claire Hooper (Good News Week) and Xavier Michelides (Rove) and since 2010 has been wowing Melbourne audiences with its special blend of high energy, improvised comedy, storytelling, singing and one-liners.

The Big HOO-HAA’s shows sold out at last year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival, so be sure to get your tickets to see 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 ten years in Perth, and for over two very successful years in Melbourne.

Two teams (the Hearts and the Bones) battle it out against each other armed with only audience suggestions and a handful of props as they leave no song unsung, no joke undelivered and no pun unpunished in their mad dash for the punchline.

The MICF line up will feature Jimmy James Eaton (MICF, 2009 National Best & Fairest Improviser), Michelle Nussey (2010 National Theatre Sports Champion), Luke & Wyatt (Nickelodeon), Xavier Michelides (Rove), Jason Chatfield (Ginger Meggs) and many more!
