Comedy Underground | Luke Heggie : I Already Told You - A Greatest Hits Retrospective

Following the latest Government advice, HOTA will remain closed for the rest of the week; the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and artists is our top priority.

No need to contact us. We’ll be in touch with all patrons holding tickets to events and exhibitions that were scheduled to take place during the lockdown period, and arrange a refund and/or exchange where possible as soon as we can.

In between thinking the absolute worst of people and welcoming them to prove him wrong if they can, Luke Heggie can often be spotted swinging a hammer, telling luxury 4WD operators in the city to slow down, kicking the odd street surveyor’s tripod, and sticking it to the man by performing stand-up comedy 6 or 7 nights per week. If you eat bananas with the string still attached to the side of the shaft, you are in charge of a blog, you play competition frisbee, or you wear a tshirt with the word finisher on it, then this is not the show for you. No lowbreeds please.

“Genuinely peerless. Have it.” Herald Sun★★★★½

“A refreshing contempt for the audience whose approval he does not crave.” Chortle ★★★★
