Claire Hooper leads stacked lineup for Geelong comedy night this week

Get on the laughs this weekend.

Nothing beats hanging with your crew and laughing until you wheeze—and this Friday the Geelong West Town Hall will be the place to do just that with LGF Comedy‘s latest event.

Regularly hosting brilliant nights of comedy from the best and brightest acts from Ballarat and Regional Victoria, Geelong’s premier comedy club LGF Comedy has locked in Claire Hooper, alongside a stellar lineup of super funny comedians, for a night of laughs this Friday.

Stay up to date with all the epic events happening in and around the region here.

Dubbed ‘Punchlines on Pako’, the event will take to the red velvet curtained stage at the Geelong West Town Hall on Friday, August 12.

The comedy night will be headlined by Claire Hooper, a legend of stage, screen and radio, who will have you rolling in the aisles.

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.

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. Over the last decade, Claire has been captivating audiences and touring brilliant solo shows across the country to critical acclaim.

Alongside Claire, the event also features an awesome line of support comics including Marren Whittaker, Sarah Maree Cameron, Aidan Nicholson, Sam Gabrielsellessie, Luke Massey and your MC for the evening Tim Young.

As always there will be amazing food from Cafe Palat available from 6pm as well as full bar service and live music from the incredible Luke Biscan before the comedy kicks off from 8pm.

Tickets are still up for grabs with a price tag of $30. It’s a yes from us.
