Dave Hughes is one of Australia’s most impressive stand-up comedians, a rare beast in that every other comedian in Australia is only too ready to sing his praises. A natural and un-mistakably Australian comic, Dave Hughes’s laconic style thinly disguises one of the fastest comic minds this country has ever seen. He is known for being a co-host on Network Ten’s Before the Game in the AFL season as well as guesting on many other popular shows. On 20 July 2009, Hughes began co-hosting the half-hour Channel 10 show The 7PM Project, which later expanded to become the hour-long The Project. Hughes also currently hosts Hughesy & Kate with Kate Langbroek on the KIIS Network.
