New Daddy Shares His Delirium

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.

LightFM’s Breakfast Announcer and Clean Comedian, Luke Holt, is taking the stage across

Melbourne in November to share the highs and lows of life, from dating, through to

parenthood, in the comedy show Dating, Daddydom & Delirium.

For Luke, navigating the world of dating, then walking boldly into the realm of marriage before

facing the daunting task parenthood has been wrought with significant ups and downs. His

dating life started with a girlfriend whom he never actually spoke to.  His now wife’s first

thoughts when she saw him were, “Quit staring you freak!” And he received news that, he and

his wife were unlikely to conceive, from a doctor who seemed unable to say the word “sperm”.  

Like tens of thousands of couples in Australia, discovering that he and wife Susie’s chances

of conceiving a child were nearly impossible led to a long and emotional journey.  After a five

year rollercoaster ride of heartbreak and hope, their son Tyson was born in May last year.  

This led to a whole new life stage marked by moments nothing short of hilarious.  

Though he now shares the mic with Lucy Holmes on Wake Up Smiling with Luke and Lucy,

for the year and a half leading up to the birth of his son, he co-hosted LightFM’s breakfast

program with his wife, Susie.  This adds some uniquely amusing stories to the upcoming


“I was thrown into a very small room with my wife and told ‘have fun’! Of course we had our

disagreements but the problem is we never had more than a three minute song to talk things

over. We very quickly mastered the art of the ‘three minute fight’. One day we were talking on-

air about the hard hitting topic of whether Cliff Richard was cool. In between the laughs and

snippets of Wired For Sound there were scowls and tears and that was just me,” muses Holt.

Through it all he's asked some pretty tough life questions, experienced some hysterical and

quirky adventures, all the while discovering some amazing truths.  

In Dating, Daddydom & Delirium, Luke gathers together some of his favorite stories - told in

his unique, hilarious, comical style - that show that sometimes, the best things in life are the

things we work hardest for.
