Check out Luke Heggies full 2018 Comedy Festival Show - 'Tiprat' HERE
Luke Heggie started stand up comedy at an Australian Raw Comedy heat in 2010. Four gigs later he was crowned The National Raw Comedy Winner and set off to Edinburgh Fringe.
His no-nonsense one liners delivered in a dry, dead pan manner were garnering praise in Australia and abroad. Luke was chosen in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival'sComedy Zone for up and coming comedians in 2011, and in 2012 performed his first full hour show Master of None. This show earned him a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and the show toured Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane. The momentum from this, and relentless club gigs around Sydney earned Luke the title ofTime Out Sydney's Best Comedian 2012. He then performed at the New York Comedy Festival in late 2012. Luke was chosen to perform at The Sydney Opera House as Stephen Merchant's support act during his 2012 tour of Australia.
