Lizzy Hoo

Sole art direction and concept design.

Taking inspiration from her background and Snoop Dogg’s 1993 smash hit, up-and-coming comedian Lizzy Hoo’s debut show highlights what it’s like to grow up mixed-raced in suburban Brisbane. Created for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival, the design for Lizzy’s show acted as the world’s introduction to her antics and uniquely-flavoured take on the situations she continually finds herself in. Made from local and imported ingredients, Lizzy’s upbringing was what I wanted to highlight – equal parts tea to XXXX gold, dumplings as common place as meat pies, can wield chopsticks as well as a fork.
