The Hooley Dooleys sing songs about activities children love. Songwriters, David Butts and Antoine Demarest incorporate a broad range of musical styles in their writing. Whether the songs have a pop, funk, reggae or rock feel however, each Hooley Dooleys song invites the children to sing and dance along: “It’s really important to create music that kids can interact with, and makes them laugh. We love children, and we love making music” Antoine said.

Throughout March 2005, professional comedians will lead students in Years 9 to 12 across the country through workshops and real-live showcase performances. Local heats cascade into State Finals and ultimately it all culminates on 31 March, when the National Final at the Melbourne Town Hall provides an opportunity for the funniest finalists to unleash their wit on a capacity cheer-squad of students, teachers and stars of the Festival.
Winning Class Clowns is not just about fame and glory. The winning act receives $3,000 cash for their school. Sure beats doing detention any day!

Whether you’re interested in competing yourself, or you’re a teacher with students who might be interested, you go about the process in pretty much the same way.
