Stand Up Comedy at The Avenue

  • The Avenue 3-15 Orchid Avenue Surfers Paradise, QLD, 4217 Australia (map)

The Avenue | June 13 | 7:30pm

One of the best touring the country, Luke Heggie (ABC, MICF, SCF) is hitting the stage at The Avenue this week with local legend Desh (Footy Show) hosting another hilarious Wednesday Night Comedy in the back room! Book your table early and reserve your seat for Wednesday Night Comedy - (07) 5592 1678.

Luke Heggie started stand up comedy in 2010. Since then he has toured Australia and abroad, performed at the Sydney Opera House for Just for Laughs, and in support of Stephen Merchant, and sold out festivals across Australia. He has written and performed 5 solo shows since 2012 at festivals across Australia and New Zealand. Luke won RAW Comedy in 2010, Time Out Sydney's Best Comedian in 2012, and Sydney Comedy Festival's Director's Choice Award in 2015. In 2016 he was featured on ABC's 2016 Comedy Next Gen and his show Rough Diamanté has been toured around the country and internationally in the UK. He is fast becoming one of Australia's most in demand and recognisable stand up comics. 2017 has seen Luke perform Rough Diamanté to crowds across the Australian Festival circuit. Punters and fellow comedians can't get enough of his harsh but fair shows about idiots and he was quick to sell out every show and rightfully awarded the Comedian's Choice Award in Melbourne (AKA Piece of Wood). Luke then went onto make his London debut with a 1 week run of Rough Diamanté in August at the popular Soho Theatre.
