Luke McClory - 1802


Luke McClory comments on many of the same issues as a typical comedian, but from the seldom-charted point of view of a positive, up-beat individual. He also does impressions but typically gravitates towards those that are, as he sees it, not performed enough: People such as Bill Pullman (not the guy from Aliens), Bob Barker, and George Takei. Luke McClory also gives unsolicited fashion advice, though this usually occurs before or after the designated performance.

Luke McClory has been performing since 2010 under the name Luke McClory. His genial, take-some-prisoners style has made him a favorite across the spectrum, from grandmothers to great-grandmothers. Luke has been a multi-time semi-finalist in the Funniest Person in Austin and has performed at both the Velveeta Room and Cap City Comedy Club, opening for such headliners as John Heffron and Deon Cole.
