The Saturday Experiment - The Big HOO-HAA! Thunderdome

Melbourne’s funniest improvisers are set to face their greatest comedic challenge to date: the Thunderdome.

Each night, two teams enter… one team leaves. Starting October 29th and running across four gruelling heats, two high-octane semi-finals and a December 17th grand finale, the best of the best will find their improv mettle tested time and again. In the end, just one improvising supergroup will rule the wasteland.

Choose your favourite team and back them as they traverse this tournament of terror. There will be scores to settle and gauntlets to run. Watch as HOO-HAA’s improvising comedians face challenges chosen by their competitors, the MC, and even you – the audience. Live comedy doesn’t get more high stakes than this.

On the summer winds, hear the cry: thunderdome… thunderdome… THUNDERDOME. Join us for the battle.
