Comedians in Melbourne

Dave Hughes

Dave Hughes is perhaps one of the most important and significant talents to have emerged from the Australian comedy scene in the last 10 years. A natural and unmistakably Australian comic, Dave’s laconic style thinly disguises one of the fastest comic minds this country has ever seen.

“[a] laconic comic genius” Herald Sun

“…one hilarious dude… 70 minutes of relentlessly entertaining sarcasm and self-deprecation” The Age

It was at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 1999 that Hughesy was forced to move from a tiny upstairs city bar into a 300-seat room at the Melbourne Town Hall. Word had started to spread about this impossibly laid back guy from Warrnambool.

Since 1999, the word has spread even further and Hughesy has become one of the biggest and most loved names in Australian stand up comedy. Honest and imperfect is how Australians like their comedy and Dave Hughes delivers exactly that in spades.
