Dave Hughes

One of Australia’s fastest and most beloved comic icons

From radio to stand up, Dave Hughes has quickly become a household name in Australian comedy thanks to his likeable personality and quick wit.

His comedy debut in 1999 quickly gained popularity through word-of-mouth. As people flocked to his show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Dave had to accommodate for the growing crowds by moving from a small city bar to a 300-seat room at Melbourne Town Hall.

Today, Dave (known locally as ‘Hughesy’) continues to be one of the highest-selling Australian comedy acts. His 2010 show ‘Retro’ was held over two nights during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival; he performed to full-houses at the Palais Theatre, which seats 3000. Dave continues to perform to sell-out crowds in his 2012 show ‘The Comeback Tour’, proving his impeccable talent as a comedian.  

Dave is also perhaps best known for his radio show with Kate Langbroek, ‘Hughesy and Kate’, which was originally aired on Melbourne’s Nova 100, and is now found on KIIS 101.1 between 4-6 weekdays. Dave also regularly appears on popular Australian programs, including TEN’s ‘Before the Game’, ‘The Project’, and as a guest on ‘Have You Been Paying Attention’.

Delivering comedy with Dave’s classic personality and sense of honesty, Dave is perfectly suited for any occasion as comedian, host or MC.
