He doesn’t have swagger, he doesn’t have arrogance and he doesn’t even have props. But comedian Luke McGregor does have honesty and it sure is hilarious in Almost Fixed It.

He doesn’t have swagger, he doesn’t have arrogance and he doesn’t even have props. But comedian Luke McGregor does have honesty and it sure is hilarious in Almost Fixed It.

In his opening line, McGregor reveals he lost his virginity at age 25 and has only had sex a handful of times since then. But thanks to his current real life, actual girlfriend, the comedian is definitely more open and keen to share his experiences – with anyone.

Luke has worked his way to become a star of the small screen, as well as the stage, through the uncomfortable and illuminating ABC documentary series, Luke Warm Sex and the addictive Rosehaven with best friend Celia Pacquola.

Just because he’s become more comfortable with talking about sex doesn’t mean he’s lost his iconic awkwardness, however. Asking personal questions of the crowd, divulging his fears of ghosts watching him sleep and hanging for high-fives from the front row means he’s only embraced his social awkwardness to be rewarded with constant roars and nervous giggles. Plus, he’s proven he can excel through panic attacks, pee-breaks and fly-away notes – who else could say that to a sell-out crowd?

Almost Fixed It is an unmissable hour packed with sexual revelations, irrational fears, entertaining eccentricities and even a couple of ginger jokes all saturated in McGregor’s lovable, nervous magnetism.
