Good Show is the first comedic outing of a new sketch supergroup consisting of Big Hoo-Haa alumni and all-round talented gits Sophie Kneebone (Impromptunes, Braveface), Matt Saraceni (Lords of Luxury, Funny or Die's "Written it Down"), Brianna Williams (Perth Fringe sell-out hit Shakesprovisation) and Luke Ryan (Lords of Luxury, MICF 2009's Luke's Got Cancer).
For their debut outing, Good Show have created a fast, furious and funny riff on our ever-more-dependent relationship with technology: connector, enabler, distractor, destroyer.
This isn't just the same tired old satire on FB updates and Tinder politics – this is a narrative-driven, thought-provoking sequence of interconnected sketches touching on isolation, obsolescence, awe, addiction and the questionable motives of our robot overlords.
But above all else, it’s just rock solid comedy that finds an emotional core in absurdity while delivering up a high-octane mix of punchlines, matesy shitgiving and off-script riffs courtesy of four critically acclaimed performers who know how to bring the funny.
Matt Saraceni is a part of heaps of comedy things. He improvises with The Big HOO HAA! Melbourne, he dresses in tuxedos with The Lords of Luxury and makes up shows that go on ABC and Funny or Die like "Written it Down". You may have heard him on the radio (Nova) or on TV (SBS 2's "The Feed" and "The Project"). He also drives a slightly emasculating ocean blue scooter.
Bri's also a part of heaps of comedy things. She improvises with The Big HOO HAA! She has performed stand-up, cabaret, storytelling, and unscripted theatre with a wide range of groups in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and New York. If you google her she can be found on the internet as Joan in The Coin Show: With Joan!, a web-series for Lotterywest, and as Leanne in Mad Kids' The Write Stuff.
Luke also does heaps of comedy things. He improvises with The Big HOO-HAA! and Improv Conspiracy. He also wrote a book called "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Chemo" based on his sellout Comedy Festival show "Luke's Got Cancer". He is also a Lord of Luxury and appears in their monthly variety night "After Dinner Mint".
