Dave Hughes is one of the biggest names in Australian Comedy. From his working-class roots ‘Hughesy’ has risen to become not only one of our most popular stand-up comedians, he's a successful Radio & TV host too.
In this episode he reveals why he chose a life of sobriety at the age of 21, and where he chases his highs these days. While Hughesy still gets nervous, he gives insight into his ongoing pursuit of intoxication through his audience, and the hit he gets from performing. He also reveals why intimacy is so important to his marriage, and why that doesn't always go to plan.
