Luke Heggie is a comedian from Sydney Australia. I’ve known Luke since we were eight and growing up with him and watching his career flourish has been one of the true pleasures of my life.
One new year’s day he decided he’d give stand up comedy a go. Less than a month later he’d won his heat in JJJ’s high-profile national Raw Comedy competition, and soon after that had won the whole thing.
Since then he’s worked tirelessly to hone his writing, his delivery and his work.
He regularly tours internationally and is launching into his new show for 2018 “Tiprat” at the MICF.
You can get tickets to the shows lukeheggie.com, and look out for shows in Sydney and Perth too.
When you do go to his show, have a listen out to the intro voice over guy.
He’s pretty good I reckon.
Talking with Luke is always wonderful, and usually it takes place on the back of small folding bicycles as he and I ride around the south eastern suburbs of Sydney looking for a cafe to play some scrabble in, yet today you’re able to hear one of these chats and I couldn’t be more happy about it.
Luke regularly gets 4 & 5 star reviews, and I would encourage you to go and see why.
The thing about talking to comedians is that the conversations sometimes aren’t 100% funny from front to back - that’s because the things that they say on stage are meticulously crafted to be a precise delivery of thoughts and ideas to make you react in a certain way. This is more a chance for you to get to know what makes up the man that is selling out shows from coast to coast, and rightly so.
Please enjoy this conversation with Luke Heggie.
