"Each segment, thanks to his scolding sarcasm and lightning wit, flowed effortlessly between pet peeves (cheap beer, other people’s children) and bigger issues (gambling, celebrity ‘entitlement’)"

Sydney comedian Luke Heggie’s latest show, You’re Not Special, may just propel him into Australian entertainment’s A-list.

The comic’s set picks apart every stereotype a typical BBQ get-together might offer. His drawling, rhythmic comic style obliterates everything from tattooed, gym-junkie couples to Doctor Who ‘aficionados’ to aspiring actors. Each segment, thanks to his scolding sarcasm and lightning wit, flowed effortlessly between pet peeves (cheap beer, other people’s children) and bigger issues (gambling, celebrity ‘entitlement’), Heggie even tearing several hecklers down with baffling precision. His sweeter side eventually rushed to the surface, helping him discuss marriage, family and life lessons. The show is a hysterical, hearty insight into “disgusting small talk” and the world around him. Just don’t give him a reason to insult you!
