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 – most recently with her brand new solo show Familiar.
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 Offfor Foxtel’s LifeStyle Channel alongside seriously funny Mel Buttle as well as judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran. Series three of Bake Off is set to air in 2017.
