Inspired Comedian & Host of The Great Australian Bake Off .


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.

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 2019, she returned to Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Great Debate as host.

Over the last decade, Claire has been captivating audiences and touring brilliant solo shows across the country to critical acclaim.

In 2015 Claire scored her dream job, as co-host of The Great Australian Bake Off for Foxtel’s LifeStyle Channel alongside the seriously funny Mel Buttle, as well as judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran and their fourth season aired in 2019.

The spritely Hooper shines… her animated expressions and dynamic movement sequences are precision quality. Inpress

marvellously entertaining…


Read the crowd well. Claire was warm, funny, happy to take photos with guests. She’d researched the company well.

Claire was great. Went out of her way to say hello to the students in the room at one particular table, and paid them out just the right amount!
