Luke McGregor

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 was a regular performer and writer for three seasons on Channel 31’s Studio A. He has written on various TV projects including Legally Brown, It’s A Date 2 & Our Watch – Christmas Campaign.

In 2013 Luke’s first solo Melbourne International Comedy Festival Show ‘My Soul Mate Is Out Of My League’ played to sold out rooms and won the prestigious Best Newcomer Award. He then went on to perform a hugely successful season at London’s Soho Theatre.

Luke performed in the feature films Now Add Honey and Border Protection Squad in which he co-starred alongside Peter Helliar, Ryan Shelton, Dave Hughes and Lachy Hulme. On television, he has had regular roles on Utopia (ABC) and Legally Brown (SBS) and appeared on Time Of Our Lives (ABC1), Josh Thomas’ Please Like Me (ABC/Pivot), and the telemovie Scumbus. His ‘ginger wonderland’ date with Sibylla Budd in It’s A Date (ABC1) stole the show, and he garnered cult figure status amongst the celebrities lucky enough to be interviewed by him on Dirty Laundry (ABC2). Luke has also appeared on Hamish & Andy’s True Story, The Project as a correspondent, This Week Live, Spicks & Specks and the web series Noirhouse.

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.

2017 has seen Luke return to stand up with sell out seasons of his brand new solo show ‘Almost Fixed It’ in Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. Later this year, Luke will be back on the ABC with the second series of Rosehaven, with a new broadcast partner in the United States, SundanceTV.
