Luke McGregor

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 co-starred in the feature film Border Protection Squad with Peter Helliar, Ryan Shelton, Dave Hughes and Lachy Hulme and on television, Luke has appeared in Legally Brown series 2 (SBS), Time Of Our Lives series 1 & 2 (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 The Project as a correspondent, This Week Live, Spicks & Specks, series 2 and 3 of the web series Noirhouse, and Utopia on ABC. In 2015 Luke appeared in the feature film Now Add Honey, and reprised his role of ‘Hugh’ in Utopia – Series 2.

Luke performed his solo showI 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. 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 also teamed up with Celia Pacquola for hit series Rosehaven, a new comedy filmed in Tasmania which they wrote and performed the lead roles in.
