GC Laughs 2020 Festival Cancellation
After months of planning and preparation this is certainly not the news we want to be sharing - unfortunately the GC Laughs events planned this week are to be cancelled.
GC Laughs was due to present some of the top names in comedy from across Australia and internationally again this year. After discussions with performers and heeding national advice regarding the developing situation, we have come to the conclusion that the best decision for the health and well-being of the community, artists and staff is to not proceed with the GC Laughs events planned for this week (March 16 - March 21).
We are working closely with HOTA to reschedule events and they will be in touch with ticket holders to arrange refunds or to transfer tickets for rescheduled shows. This may take up 10 days and events early in the festival will be the first priority. Please bear with us.
The ice-cream has been knocked from our hand, but we're scooping more into a fresh cone as we speak - stay tuned!
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 6 or 7 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 lukeheggie.com 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.
