THE BIG GIG - FEATURING LUKE HEGGIE

THE BIG GIG - FEATURING LUKE HEGGIE
Thursday, October 30 2014, Doors 7.30pm, Show starts 8.00pm

Feature Comedian - Luke Heggie
Support Comedian - Desh
MC - Mandy Nolan
18+ Show

Luke Heggie is an efficient comic: no ostentation, no smoke and mirrors; visual, physical and verbal understatement ensue – followed by much laughter, of course. 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. And Luke was 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.

A master of dealing with hot topics in a non-offensive way, as an Arabic Australian he navigates religion, terrorism and makes hysterical observations of modern Australian life.
Akmal is joined by comedy circuit favourite Joel Ozborn, a Festival favourite who has taken his comedy around the world from South East Asia to Las Vegas.
With local favourites Greg Sullivan and Mandy Nolan along for the ride, this is certain to be one bloody cracker of a comedy night!
