As part of Melbourne Public’s new series of comedy nights, we are thrilled to be welcoming Dave Hughes to the stage on Thursday 13 September.
Dave Hughes is an Australian stand-up comedian, radio and television presenter, known for his larrikin personality, drawling Australian accent, and deadpan comedic delivery.
Star of ‘Hughesy, We Have a Problem’ on Channel Ten, host of The Logies and co-host of star radio show ‘Hughesy & Kate’ on the Hit Network – Dave Hughes is a Melbourne favourite.
Over the years, Dave has been busy hosting popular AFL football show Before the Game (2003-2013) and doing weekly segments on Rove (2007-2009). In mid-2009, he became an inaugural host of new Channel 10 nightly news show The Project, along with Charlie Pickering and Carrie Bickmore, often injecting much-needed humour into the news of the day.
He continued on the show until the end of 2013, when he announced he would be leaving to focus on stand-up comedy and time with his young family. This year was also the final year of the Hughesy and Kate show on Nova 100, drawing to a close a successful 12-year breakfast radio partnership with Kate Langbroek. After just one year apart, Hughesy and Kate returned to the airwaves in 2015 with a national drive show and in 2018, Hughesy and Kate are moved to the Hit Network nationally where they will continue to host Drive radio. Dave now broadcasts his radio show from all around the country while touring his stand up show.
This is a rare and intimate show, for only $30! Book your tickets now before we sell out.
“Dave Hughes is a comedy institution in this town. And it’s easy to see why.”
