Factory Espresso Comedy – Mick Meredith & Luke Heggie
Fri October 23 - Sat October 24
Mick & Luke have both been to Orange multiple times and have knocked us for 6. Its going to be a great double header
With over a quarter century on stage Mick Meredith is part joke teller and part guitar slinging song monster. Mick’s shows are a rapid-fire comical commentary of stories, songs, gags and guitarings.
Mick began his musical to comedy journey at the legendary Sandringham Hotel, Newtown in the 80’s playing in rock bands before switching to comedy in the 90’s. Micks’ ability to entertain any audience from teens up to nans & pops is something not every comic can do and surely proves what a versatile act he truly is.
Comic favourite Luke Heggie is known for his dry dead pan style and the ability to deliver a brand new killer comedy show year after year. He gigs relentlessly 6 or 7 nights a week and tours the biggest comedy and arts festivals in Australia and New Zealand to sell out crowds and rave reviews. Luke also has a fan base in UK by taking his harsh but fair shows about idiots to crowds at London’s Soho Theatre.
Luke Heggie’s television appearances include performing live
on the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Opening Night Allstars Supershow, Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Oxfam Gala, Just for Laugh’s Stand Up Series filmed live at the Sydney Opera House for the Comedy Channel, you would have also seen him on Ten’s The Project, ABC TV’s Comedy Next Gen and Comedy Up Late.
In 2020 Luke started a Podcast with fellow comedian Nick Cody called Mid Flight Brawl, cataloguing the best all time air rage incidents, generally resulting from any old tiprat being allowed to fly now.
