Election Special: Stand-Up … and Be Counted – Claire Hooper
In the lead up to the Australian Federal Election, comedian and writer Toby Halligan hosted Australia’s sharpest political comics as they pulled apart the bizarre, the absurd, the dismaying and the disastrous antics of Canberra’s finest. They talked policy, strategy, oratory, zingers, stunts and blunders from the campaign trail; no party or politician was safe.
Join us for a bout of comedy designed to cure even the worst cases of electoral dysfunction.
Presented in partnership with Political Asylum.
Claire Hooper started on the stage – crafting engaging, innovative live shows that blended stand-up, theatre and some hammer dancing.
Her 2006 show, Oh, earned her both critical acclaim and a nomination for the Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Best Newcomer award. A born storyteller with a sharp wit, Claire has gone on to regularly perform at festivals and comedy rooms all over the country.
