Dave Hughes, born and raised in Warrnambool, Victoria, is an Australian stand-up comedian. 'Hughesy', as he is commonly known, is well known for his loveable (or hateable) larrikin personality and drawling Australian accent. His catchcry gig-starter is variations on "You know what, guys? I'm not happy tonight... " followed by something inappropriate which he will then defend with gusto. It has been known lately to deviate into the suprising "I'm happy tonight...", or "I'm angry tonight...".
Since 2002, Hughes has featured in Melbourne's Nova 100 breakfast program on weekdays, "Hughesy, Kate and Dave", with Kate Langbroek and Dave O'Neil . He is also a panellist on the AFL-related show Before The Game .
He is a regular performer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and his performances are often sold out.
In the past, he has worked on national radio station Triple M, and had guest spots on The Fat , Rove Live, The Panel, and several other programs. Some of his performances have been recorded for CD, such as Dave Hughes Whatever.
He is represented by Token Artists.
