Luke Heggie Lowbreed

This is a stand-up comedy show.

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 six or seven nights per week.

His work could never be labelled important, leaving him unencumbered by the shackles of genius and able to get on with the job.

If you wish to be referred to as ladies and gentlemen multiple times in a short period, or you really want to be friends with the person on stage because you've been unable to fill the quota yourself, then this is not the show for you.

Similarly, if any of the following terms appear in your regular rotation: toxic, cancelled, tone deaf, awesome sauce, savvy B, or shaming, then further to not attending this show, don't approach any member of Luke's family, including his dog.

These shows are scheduled to be not only inside, but at night time, nullifying the need for people with sunglasses anywhere on their heads to attend. An exception will be made for the blind.

If the exclusivity of any of this causes a problematic to occur, then complaints can be purchased from for $1, the price of a postage stamp, which is what silent majority-types used to have to buy before having a good Aussie bleat about trivialities.

No lowbreeds please.
