About Luke Heggie

Brisbane-born Sydney labourer Luke Heggie began 2010 with the New Year’s Resolution that he’d get on stage and do some stand-up. His first gig was the one where he won his RAW Comedy heat; his second was the one where he got through the semi-final. His third was the one where he won the state final. If you can see a pattern appearing, you may well have guessed that Luke’s ingenious one-liners – delivered with minimal fuss and frills – won him that year’s National RAW Comedy Competition.

He’s an efficient comic: no ostentation, no smoke and mirrors; visual, physical and verbal understatement ensue – followed by much laughter, of course. And because it’s still early days, Luke’s CV is as laconic as his stage manner: his RAW win meant Luke got to play Edinburgh Fringe, where he opened for The Nelson Twins – quite possibly the most Aussie comedy show to ever play the UK.

Luke was also chosen to be part of the 2011 Comedy Zone – the show the Melbourne International Comedy Festival puts together from the very best up-and-comers. In 2012, he was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and was then awarded Time Out’s Best Sydney Comedy Award following his shows at the Sydney Comedy Festival.
