Dave Hughes's Biography
Natural and unmistakably Australian, Hughesy’s laconic style thinly disguises one of this country’s fastest comedic minds. Turning everyday foibles into rich and hilarious routines has made Hughesy the biggest name in Australian comedy.
For 10 years Hughesy made up one half of Melbourne’s Nova breakfast team and for 5 years he co-hosted Network Ten’s The Project, not to mention 10 years on Ten’s AFL show Before the Game.
While he never left stand-up behind, in late 2013 Dave shocked Australia by announcing that he would be giving up his radio and television jobs to go back to his roots touring a brand-new stand up show for an entire year. That show, Pointless sold over 60,000 tickets and went to every corner of Australia as well as overseas to LA, Montreal, the Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre in London’s west end.
In 2015 Dave returned to the airwaves with long time co-host Kate Langbroek, this time in the drive slot on the Hit Network.
Dave’s television show Hughesy We Have a Problem, where Australians can have their problems solved by Hughesy and his expert panel of problem solvers, premiered on Network Ten in early 2018 to rave reviews and big audiences. Its first season was extended by the network not long after its debut due to popular demand, and is now in its fourth season.
Dave is one of the judges for the first season of Network Ten’s smash hit, The Masked Singer, alongside Lindsay Lohan, Dannii Minogue and Jackie O, where this crack unit of musical detectives watch 12 celebrities take the stage beneath bizarre disguises and try to unearth who is behind the mask.
The Masked Singer will be returning in 2020.
