Luke Heggie

Comedian. No lowbreeds please.

Luke Heggie is one of Australia's most in demand and recognisable stand up comedians.

The first thing he did as a stand up was win the Melbourne International Comedy Festival's 2010 Raw Comedy competition.

Since 2012, Heggie has produced a one hour show every year, each one better then the last, all touring Australia to sell out crowds.

His debut show Master of None earned him the title of Time Out Sydney's Best Comedian. Soon after that he performed at the New York Comedy Festival, and Just for Laughs at the Sydney Opera House.

In 2015, Luke was awarded the Sydney Comedy Festival's Director's Choice Award for his show You're Not Special. His 2016 show Anythink is Possible was aired on ABC Comedy as part of the Next Generation series, and earned an ARIA nomination for Best Comedy Release.

2017 saw Luke perform Rough Diamanté to crowds across the Australian Festival circuit. Punters and fellow comedians couldn't get enough of his harsh but fair shows about idiots and he was quick to sell out every show and was rightfully awarded the Comedian's Choice Award in Melbourne (AKA Piece of Wood). Luke then went on to make his London debut with a 1 week run of Rough Diamanté in August at the popular Soho Theatre.

Luke’s 2018 show Tiprat was a hit across the Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane and New Zealand Festivals, and saw a return to London’s Soho theatre where some soft losers walked out. Tiprat was filmed in Newtown in mid 2018 and the result has earned him his second Aria nomination for Best Comedy Release.

Luke's 2019 show Have That sold out across Australian festivals, and was filmed at the Metro Theatre, Sydney, for release in August 2019.

All of Heggie's shows are available at the STORE page.
