After four years behind The Project desk, Dave Hughes, or Hughesy, is getting back into stand-up, with the first trial of his come-back beginning in Brisbane’s Sit Down Comedy Club this weekend.
For the last two decades, Dave Hughes has been in the media eye. From Melbourne’s Nova FM, to Network Ten’s successful nightly show, The Project, Hughesy has made a career from that ‘everyday bloke’ attitude for which Australians adore him. Also he has never been afraid to laugh at his own ridiculousness.
But it has been ten years since Dave Hughes has been on the road – until this weekend. We have TWO DOUBLE PASSES to giveaway for his show, A Work in Progress, at the Sit Down Comedy Club Brisbane this weekend! Send your favourite ‘Hughesy’ moment, and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org *You must Like bmag on Facebook to enter. Competition drawn Friday 31st Jan.*
Hughesy announced at the end of last year that he would be quitting Nova and The Project, to get back on the stage for a national tour in 2014.
“I’ve been banging on about doing a proper national stand-up tour for years and if I don’t do it now before my kids start school, I never will,” he said.
However, Hughesy has to start somewhere to get his stand-up jokes up to scratch, and what better place for some raw comedy than Brisbane’s Sit Down Comedy Club.
For three days this weekend, Hughesy will be dishing out some improvisation, fresh jokes, and probably some things that might not be repeated again.
The act will not be polished – but if you would prefer to see one of Australia’s most loved media personalities unplugged and unpredictable, then ‘A Work in Progress’ is a must-see show.
