Who is Hey Boss?

Hey Boss is a collaborative, award-winning production and management company working with cutting-edge, thoughtful and future-minded theatre, music, and comedy shows on the global fringe circuit. Hey Boss shows have sold out, won awards, and achieved critical acclaim at Adelaide Fringe, Fringe World (Perth), Sydney Comedy Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, to name a few.

We are currently interested in building direct touring opportunities and cross-industry relationships with commercial or artistic outcomes. Our long-term focus is on fostering sustainable careers for our artists, giving them the space to thrive, and extending the reach of their work. Hey Boss shows focus on connection with the audience and broad accessibility, with underlying sociological themes.

“This is what the arts is for – to provide inspiration, sharing of stories and ideas and most of all, an escape from your own life and ideas.”
