Luke McGregor to join The Weekly with Charlie Pickering

Luke McGregor is the latest addition to the star-studded cast of The Weekly with Charlie Pickering.

“I’m really excited to join The Weekly team,” said McGregor. “One, because I’m a fan of the show; and two, because I’m at home self-isolating with nothing to do and this gives me a reason to shower.”

With the world falling apart McGregor will finally be putting his economics good use.

“No one is better placed to guide us through these anxious times than a deeply anxious comedian with an enduring passion for graphs,” said the show’s producers. “Prepare to watch an adult man apologise to a virus while willing a curve to flatten.”

Charlie Pickering added, “After being bullied for five years by a Logie-winning red-headed comedian with an out of control ego, I’m very happy to be joined by a Logie-winning red-headed comedian with no ego at all. I’m even happier that he’s one of my favourite comedians in the country.”

McGregor joins host Charlie Pickering alongside the regular cast of Judith Lucy, Tom Gleeson and Adam Briggs.

The Weekly with Charlie Pickering returns to ABC and iview on Wednesday 29 April.
