Dave Hughes – Sweet at the Enmore Theatre

Larrikin, lad, satirist and occasional television host – Dave Hughes will have you LOLing in the aisles with his brand new show, Sweet.

By Benjamen Judd

With his shows at the Sydney Comedy Festival already sold out, Aussie comedian Dave Hughes has graced us with the blessing of additional performances at the Enmore Theatre on Friday, August 5. 

Affectionately known as "the people's comedian", Dave "Hughesy" Hughes has become famous for his unrepentant bogan-isms and unrelenting Australian stereotype drawl. 

His satirical observation of the peculiarities of Australian life and the broader cultural landscape make him unique gift to Australian comedy. It was this ability to skewer the Aussie psyche, combined with an admirable deadpan delivery that made Hughes such a well-loved host on Channel Ten's The Project.

But aside from all that cerebral claptrap, it also helps that Dave Hughes is genuinely funny. And a nice guy while he's at it. (Although he does slip in a few swears here and there so take your kids at your own risk.) 

Sweet has already received rave reviews after being shown at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. 

It's just as the tour by-line suggests – an hour spent in the company of Dave Hughes has one of the highest laugh rates per minute you will ever experience at a stand-up comedy show. True. 

Dave Hughes stand-up comedy show Sweet will show on August 5 at the Enmore Theatre. 

Tickets to Sweet can be purchased online at Ticketek
