What's On

The Big Hoo- Haa! Fifteenth Birthday Show

The Big HOO-HAA! improvised theatre show has been running every Saturday night in Perth, Western Australia, for fifteen years!

Come celebrate with Sam Longley and the Hoo-Haa team with a Fifteenth Birthday Show at the Dolphin Theatre.

When this show started there was no Facebook, youtube, android, GPS or iphones – how did it survive?

“It’s been a labour of love... and laughs, that I never thought would last this long”, says director and founder Sam Longley.

“When we started, fifteen years ago, we were warming up in an industrial kitchen and performing in the back room of a Freo pub to tens of punters. Now we have our own venue, Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den, and sell out our shows regularly.

“Even though we have been going for fifteen years we still have new audiences every week. Perth people are still discovering us. What’s more teenager than discovering new things?”

Pimples, first kisses, and broken voices. Welcome to the teenage years– bold, brash, curious and awkward... and the perfect time to have an improvised birthday show!

The Fifteenth Birthday Show will see Perth’s best improvisers tackle the thorny issues of high school politics and the difficult coming-of-age experiences.

Improvisation plus breaking voices, plus first dates, plus hair growing in unexpected places – surely the perfect union for an hilarious and awkward birthday night!

Time: Doors open at 8.00pm, show starts at 8:30pm.

Cost: $28 tickets through ticketek or ticketswa
