STEVE HUGHES “Outstanding, Hughes is Gold!” -Metro
“Intelligent, provocative, profound ... see him while he’s still legal!” -Chortle
“5 Stars” -Herald Sun
Internationally renowned stand up comedian Steve Hughes is not one to shy away from the issues. A “convict wizard”, Hughes brings his worldly insights to the bleeding obvious and always tells it like it is. Known as an erudite, philosophical, and highly opinionated comic, he seamlessly, or paradoxically, weaves together a laid-back Aussie charm and acutely caustic anti-establishment rage. Distinctive and thought-provoking, Hughes is renowned for his honesty, openness, and invaluable insight.
Beginning his foray into comedy in the 1990s, he took Australia by storm before moving to Manchester, where he now lives. Influenced by comedy greats Bill (Now Creepy) Cosby, Richard Pryor, and Woody Allen to name a few, Hughes has toured the world from Edinburgh to America, and now Asia! Selling out and receiving critical acclaim all over, Hughes is rarely seen without a leather jacket, band t-shirt, and jeans – what he attributes to his younger days as a heavy metal drummer.
On television, Hughes has performed stellar sets on Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), Stand Up For The Week (Channel 4), and One Night Stand (Dave) to name a few. His 2012 debut solo show, Big Issues was a smash hit success and saw Hughes adding an extra week of dates, due to overwhelming demand. A year later, Hughes returned with While It’s Still Legal and played over 50 dates across the country, receiving rave reviews.
Complementing Steve Hughes is the “deliciously subversive” Aidan Killian!
“Lyrical-political commentary became poetry!” -Broadway Baby
