Word of mouth has obviously travelled fast, because Saturday night’s Dave Hughes show Deluded was sold out - and for good reason. Hughsey delivered his signature style self-deprecating humour that we’ve all come to know and love. Making a point to interact with the audience as much as possible, the hilarity of which cannot be underestimated, Hughsey put several audience members on the spot with his quick fire questions, and even quicker retorts.
Having a particularly good time with a woman who came into the show late because of a Hen’s night, Hughsey had the room roaring with laughter at the cost of this poor woman’s embarrassment. Leaving no stone unturned, Dave took a crack at Shannon Noll’s recent Crazy Horse incident, the state of Adelaide’s road works and our AFL teams, unleashing particular ruthlessness on the Adelaide Crows, who, much to his dismay, his seven year old son barracks for.
Dave’s one man comedy show lets you get right up close and personal with him, as he hilariously shares (probably a little too much information) about his recent experiences with Gastro, adult diapers, colonoscopies and his bedroom antics. Relatable humour for the everyday Aussie at its best, Dave Hughes’ Deluded is a box office hit this Fringe Festival. Get your hands on tickets to see him at the Garden of Unearthly Delights before this season ends. Hughey’s humour on radio is one thing, but it's quite a treat in person; be sure to experience it for yourself!
