What better way to spend the afternoon raising money for children in need and being entertained by some of comedy’s finest. In keeping to our theme of ‘Child abuse is no laughing matter’ we invite you to be entertained by Aussie Story Teller Mick Colliss. Master of Ceremonies for our 14th Annual Charity Lunch will be Tina Altieri.
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. All The Rage, Claire’s brand new live show will be touring to all the major festivals in 2018.
For four years Claire shared a set with Paul McDermott and Mikey Robbins on the iconic comedy show Good News Week as a team captain. She has also appeared on Rove and The Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Great Debate and Opening Night Gala.
In 2015 Claire scored her dream job as co-host of The Great Australian Bake Off for Foxtel’s LifeStyle Channel alongside the seriously funny Mel Buttle, as well as judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran.
