Three Men & My Little Lady - The Musical

Click for videos and more informationFor many Australians, the thought of three children under four, particularly in this financial climate, is overwhelming.  Demands are high and the pressure unrelenting.

 

For one man, this is his reality.  He’s lived through: 537 erratic days of a pregnant wife (sure, she went through the pain and discomfort but he responded to her cravings and interpreted pregnancy brain gibberish so he’s taking credit anyway); 3126 breastfeeds (he understands anatomy, but he is taking credit anyway);  8658 nappy changes (sure he was conveniently absent for most of them, but he’s taking credit anyway); 6942 songs and stories; and 2555 shirts that have been worn in public with vomit, snot or dribble.

While to many this might seem enormous, in his world, it’s something to sing and dance about.
Queensland breakfast radio host and comedian Luke Holt, who brought you “Dating, Daddydom and Delirium”, brings you his first musical comedy show, despite the large extent to which he is musically inept. Quite simply he thinks the rhythm of life is worth dancing to. Oh boy, and does he have moves.
This show has everything: big laughs, big music and big dancing. Luke will leave you in stitches as he tries to make sense of the craziness of everyday life.
With his unique way with words and unforgettable moves on the dance floor, this is not your average comedy show. Three Men and My Little Lady – The Musical will entertain you in more ways than one and will leave you laughing and feeling good long after the closing number.

Luke in London

I am about to squeeze my way onto a jetplain and head to London for some Devonshire Tea and a jolly good time young chap, and I am pretty chuffed.

I continue to do a breakfast radio show but instead of having to get out of bed at 3:50am the breakfast show will start on-air London time at 9pm. That basically means I can sleep all day right?

Last major event I covered like this I slept an average of about 4 hours a night and I wasn’t doing a breakfast radio show then.

I am going to be doing radio crosses for radio stations across Australia and in some cases around the world. If you would like to your radio station to acquire the energetic and passionate reporting skills of an experienced media sports enthusiast. please get in touch from this website’s contact form. I will happily let you know what’s involved.

For radio stations interested in just having a look at what I can provide I have audio samples of an interview with Giaan Rooney and a radio cross about some Olympic news.

Luke Returns to Melbourne

It was nearly six years when Clean Comedian and breakfast radio host Luke Holt parted ways with LightFM at the end of 2011. Luke was relocating the family back to Queensland despite loving his time and his team in Melbourne.

Now, six months on and he returns to be a part of a project that was his idea, passion, and legacy: The LightFM Clean Comedy Night.

For three years previous LightFM has used this comedy event as a platform to engage supporters and raise funds in the build up to the End of Financial Year Appeal, which it has done successfully. The fourth year promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

Make sure you take the chance to catch Luke Holt at the LightFM Comedy Night.

What is Luke doing now?

Luke has joined the small but growing team at Juice 107.3 on the Gold Coast, as the breakfast host and program director. If you tune in on Tune In Radio you may hear some familiar branding of ‘Wake Up Smiling’ as Luke can’t help but to have this happen when he connects with people on the radio.

 

Driving 6 hrs with 3 Kids under 3

We are on the road, traveling from the Gold Coast to see my Mum and Dad in Bundaberg. How brave!! Well I think it's a treat to get to spend 6 and a half hours in a small metal box with 3 small children who always do and say as I wish and never get upset, poo their nappies or wet their pants. A long drive is a great chance to use the iPhone to record him singing his favourite song. Tyson apparently has no interest in performing for me personally but he is clearly a fan of the Luke Laughs website. Listen to this and notice his silent contemplation and change of heart. listen

Long Time Listener, First Time Caller

LightFM’s Luke Holt and K-Rock’s Leroy Brown in the Melbourne FringeShock jocks and controversy are a part of our culture, but the shock from these jocks is an entire hour of Fringe comedy, free from smut and language, yet with constant thrills and laughs. Long Time Listener, First Time Caller is the result of LightFM’s Luke Holt and K-Rocks Leroy Brown combining live radio and live comedy in a way that is certain to give a jaw dropping and side splitting insight to the ultimate ‘theatre of the mind’.

Fights, Manipulation, and Osama!

As it turns out I AM really that boring! My twin boys are only a few weeks old when they decided that when I talk, all they hear is, “blah blah…blahblahblah blahblah”.

Let me introduce you to Royden Axel Dillon on the left and Toby Morrison Levin on the right. Three names for each boy is a little unusual and is often the cause of a question or two and I would love to say it was steeped in a deep family history. I can’t truthfully say that though.

Two Extremes of Reviews

As a comedian it is the most and least desirable thing to get a review. Every comedian wants to be able to put an amazing quote from a credible source on their poster, facebook event invitation, or email to our mum. However, what if it’s a bad review, or what if no reviewer even bothers to turn up? Worse yet, what of nobody reviewer bothers to turn up but gives you a bad review anyway?

Squeaky Clean Comedy


Clean Comedy looks like it has made it’s mark on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival after the first session of the Squeaky Clean Comedy show at the Melbourne City Conference Centre on Swanston St last Friday night (9th of April).

Hosted by the incredibly and reliably funny Michael Connell and including sets from Mike Klimczak, Jason Pestell, Beau Stegmann, Phil Andrews, Dave Wiggins, Cameron Semmens, and Luke Holt from Luke Laughs.

Comedy Festival 2011

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is about to experience Luke Holt’s show Dating, Daddydom, And Delirium. See the show for the final time in Melbourne on the 1st or 2nd of April at the British Crown and have a beautiful meal to makie it a great night out. Tickets are $35 here.

In a society where fertility issues are as common as they are heartbreaking it is not everyday where we find one laughing through this plight. Having lost up to ten potential pregnancies along the way Luke and Susie Holt still find a way to laugh through the tears.

RUNNING Late

Apparently Tyson is running late -with running being the operative word. This 16 month old boy seems to always have somewhere to go and have something very important to do. We hit the open spaces of the church building the other day and off he went sprinting like his life depended on him getting to the other side in 5 seconds flat. What was so important?

When Man and Woman Fight

When Man and Woman fight it can be a very scary thing. Especially when that man is me, and that woman is my wife Susie. I think that Susie is the only person in the world that can scare into silence during a fight. My mother wants to get tips from Susie cause over 32 years mum hasn’t managed it once. How can Susie achieve this silence? Well three things I think: Susie’s opinion of me matters more than anybody else’s in the world; I am so committed to try and use proper conflict resolution skills -to enable our marriage to be exceptional- that I double guess everything I am about to say; Susie argues without logic…that’s right, when she is running out of things to say she just says random stuff and I can’t follow along.
