About the Speaker
Luke McGregor started his stand-up comedy career in Tasmania in 2007 when he entered the raw comedy competition after one of the contestants didn’t show up. In 2008 he was selected as a Raw Comedy national finalist.
Luke performed his solo show ‘I Worry That I Worry Too Much’ at the 2014 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Luke had no need for undue ‘worry’ as he was moved to a bigger venue during the festival. Two thumbs up Mr McGregor! Immediately after the MICF, Luke took the show to the Sydney Comedy Festival and was awarded Best Newcomer 2014, another outstanding festival season. He then went on to perform his debut season at the Edinburgh Festival and a return season at the Soho Theatre in London. In 2015 he performed a return season of three sold out shows at the Comedy Theatre in Melbourne.
In 2016 Luke presented Luke Warm Sex (ABC), a show that took an embarrassingly honest and humorous look at all things ‘sex’. Luke then teamed up with Celia Pacquola for the hit series Rosehaven (ABC) a new comedy filmed in Tasmania which they wrote and performed the lead roles in.
This year, Luke returned to stand up with sell out seasons of his brand new solo show ‘Almost Fixed It’ in Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. Luke has recently filmed a guest role on True Story, Hamish & Andy’s series for the Nine Network to air later in 2017.
