Claire Hooper's Biography

Claire Hooper is set apart by her wonderfully inventive, skillful and completely engaging stage shows. Claire was a Team Captain on Network TEN’s Good News Week for four years which brought her in to the homes of Australians nationally. She has also appeared on Rove Live, ABC TV’s The Sideshow, The Comedy Channel’s Stand Up!, Australia and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Great Debate with Stephen K Amos and Greg Fleet.

Claire began her comedy career in Perth in 2004 when she won her state finals of triple j’s Raw Comedy. In 2005 she was selected to perform in ‘The Comedy Zone’ at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and won ‘Best and Fairest’ at the National Improv Championships. Claire still regularly performs in comedy rooms across the country.

In 2006 she scored a Best Newcomer nomination at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for her first solo show, which went on to earn a place in Scotland on Sunday’s top five comedy picks of the Edinburgh Fringe. She has also written, directed and performed in a number of theatre shows, though not necessarily all at the same time.

Over the last decade, Claire has been captivating audiences and touring brilliant solo shows across the country to critical acclaim, continuing with her latest show Familiar at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Perth Fringe Festival in 2017.

In 2015, Claire landed her dream job as co-host of The Great Australian Bake Off alongside seriously funny Mel Buttle as well as judge’s Maggie Beer and Matt Moran. Bake Off aired in 2015 and was been warmly received across the country. The third season went to air in 2017.

Claire is sought after for MC roles and comedy spots and has performed for companies such as Telstra, The City of Melbourne, The Professionals, The Australian Womens Leadership Symposium and many more, not to mention charity organisations such as the Lost Dogs Home, Free The Bears Fund and Dymmocks Childrens Charities.
