Fraser Hooper – Funny Business


Pitch 12

man smiling in between clown faces

Guaranteed giggles galore from internationally award-winning funny man Fraser Hooper. This hilarious show features a stunt duck, a human fish and the silliest boxing match you have ever seen.

So get a ringside seat for a belly aching knockout performance. After a glittering career in menswear Fraser Hooper gave it all up to become a clown.

Thirty years on his award winning comedy has delighted thousands of audiences worldwide. With a nod to the great silent clowns he uses mime, audience participation and eccentric dance in hilarious shows that delight all ages wherever he plays.


“Perfect comic timing, Hooper is super” The Sunday Mail Australia "He teases his giggling audience and the more he takes the mickey the more they laugh. A most charismatic clown.”

— Time Out UK, The Times UK

In New Zealand Fraser Hooper won The Iron Chicken Award at The Bread and Circus World Buskers Festival, in Germany he won Best Act at The Landshut Street Festival, Bronze in China at The Acrobatic Circus Festival Wuhan and Silver at Saint-Paul-Les-Dax Circus Festival in France.
