Hooper won't be deterred by Geraldton's double gees

068L2047 From ginger haired male comedians, the birth of the first child, her mother-in-law and "Geraldton's double gees", comedian Claire Hooper will have a lot of people laughing at the Comedy Emporium's first birthday show tomorrow night.

The well renowned Australian comedian is headlining the big event for local business The Comedy Emporium, which is set to be a huge night of laughs and celebrations.

Claire is well known around Australia for her comedic stylings and you have probably seen her on Good News Week, The Sideshow, Rove Live, The Circle, Stand Up Australia and The Great Debate.

Everything Geraldton spoke to Claire yesterday and she relived some of her childhood memories from holidays in Geraldton.

"My mum spent her adolescence there so we were always holidaying in Geraldton as kids," she said.

"I remember the beautiful sand dunes and those double gees - yeah those brutal prickles."

We assured Claire she wouldn't hopefully encounter any "brutal prickles" but she said now she's a mum she would be travelling with shoes on.

Claire will mix it with the likes of local young guns Jackson Canny and Ellen Clancy Millett as well as local comics Brian Poller, Mark Canny, Rosie Sitorus, Lachlan Adam and Julian Canny. Professor Alistair Crawford will make his way from Kalgoorlie for the show and city slickers Rachel Mills and Colin Ebsworth will also grace the stage.

Claire said although she has some Geraldton related jokes on the cards, she would be leaving most of that stuff to the local comedians.

"I think I will leave most of the hardcore Geraldton jokes to the locals," she said.

"I'm excited to be back in Geraldton. It's always a warmer experience. It's not too big but not too small and people are just looking for a good time."

Claire said jokes about her mother-in-law always feature but she assures us she isn't overstepping the mark.

"I am blessed to have a really entertaining mother-in law and the thing is - she loves the attention!"

Tomorrow night's show will kick off at the Queens Park Theatre from 6:30pm tomorrow night with live music from 7pm and comedy beginning at 6pm.

Tickets are very limited so get there early to get a ticket at the door.

In one last comment to Everything Geraldton, Claire said she was "road tripping" from Perth to Geraldton with her mum and said, "If you see my mum on the streets of Geraldton, buy her a drink."
