Sassy, unique and lovable weirdo Gen Fricker joins forces with no-nonsense, king of the dead pan, Luke Heggie in this one off double header as a part of the digital comedy series, Humour Us.

Gen Fricker

Gen Fricker has quickly become one of the nation’s brightest stars on the national comedy circuit, with her unique blend of sassy and dark stand up delivered with a butter-wouldn’t-melt-in-her-mouth smile.

Since making her comedy debut in 2011 as a national finalist in the triple j Raw Comedy competition, Fricker is known as a “must-see” act across Australia and New Zealand comedy festivals, as well as appearing by invitation at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Falls Festival and Splendour in The Grass for multiple years. Fricker was heard nationally for 5 years as the host of triple j’s Lunch show, and makes regular TV appearances, including Have You Been Paying Attention? (TEN), The Project (TEN), Celebrity Name Game (TEN), and Spicks and Specks (ABC).

Luke Heggie

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. 

Starting out as RAW Comedy winner and going up from there, Luke’s accolades includes two ARIA Award nominations for Best Comedy Release, the coveted ‘comic’s choice’ Piece of Wood Award at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the 2015 Sydney Comedy Festival’s Director’s Choice Award, and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 

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, and  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.

“Gen Fricker is a genius... hilariously, unapologetically weird.”
