Luke Wienecke is not a rising comic per se, but he is still pretty funny. He was a finalist in this year's DC Improv's DC's Funniest College Student contest, a national finalist in TBS and Rooftop Comedy's National College Comedy Competition with his teammates on the University of Maryland comedy team, being named one of the four funniest colleges in the nation.
Luke has been performing comedy for the past three years in some of the best venues in the area, including Magooby's Joke House, Riot Act and the DC Improv. He performs regularly with the comedy group Off the Wall at UMD, who have performed with Reggie Watts, Judah Friedlander and Jermaine Fowler, among others. At UMD, he also won the Stand-up Standoff this past fall. This summer, he performed at LOL @ Artscape along with ten of the best comics in the Baltimore area.
When he grows up, he wants to be a spaceman.
