Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes is perhaps one of the most important and significant talents to have emerged from the Australian comedy scene in the last ten years. A natural and unmistakably Australian comic, Dave’s laconic style thinly disguises one of the fastest comic minds this country has ever seen.
Often referred to as “a typical Aussie bloke”, comedian Dave Hughes is an unusual success story.
From working-class roots, the university drop-out and former abattoir worker has risen to become one of Australia’s most popular and successful stand-up comedians.
His honesty and laconic humour led to several long-term hosting roles on television and radio, most recently on KIIS and MIX FM Drive nationally, and Channel Nine’s AFL Footy Show.
“Hughes is skilled, appealing to all and always in control. Excellent.”
