After relentless touring and live club work, Luke Heggie is back in London, bone-dry and with a brand-new show.
Luke Heggie threatened to quit stand-up comedy. But after everyone he told of his plans cried inconsolably and clung to his ankles as he walked away, he decided that the world needs laughter, so he’s back with another harsh but fair show about dickheads.
If you own a circular beach towel and/or a set of square dinner plates, you do the reach-around at buffets to get an empty plate before you’re in front of the food, you’re one of those deluded losers who’s friends with all his ex-girlfriends, you wear a t-shirt with the word “finisher” on it, you were the one responsible for hot nuts not being available in pubs anymore, you’re neither a mechanic nor a toddler and yet you wear overalls, you need a performer to be some former eisteddfod winner who will tell you how to think and act in your everyday lives, the most impressive thing to you about a comedian is that “he didn’t swear once”, or you need your comedy to sound just like it did in a much happier era of your life, then this is not the show for you.
Luke Heggie is a former RAW Comedy winner who has performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Oxfam Gala. He’s a two-time ARIA (Australian Record Industry Awards) nominee for Best Comedy Release, claimed the coveted ‘comic’s choice’ Piece of Wood Award at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the 2015 Sydney Comedy Festival’s Director’s Choice Award, and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2012 MICF.
