237 Steve Hughes

over 3 years ago

Steve Hughes is a comedy legend. He has sliced and diced up some of the best stages that the world comedy circuit has to offer. I've worked with Steve many times, I was even working with him on the night that I met Ashna.

Several years ago he had a meltdown that led to him moving back home to Australia.
Finally after much worry I got to come back to Sydney and see him.
He is as feisty as ever even if he has turned to the right on some issues.
Steve is one of my all time favorite comedians and someone I always enjoy shooting the shit with. After not seeing him for four years I am happy to have this conversation with him to catch up, find out how his meltdown happened and how he has recovered from it to be back up and telling it like it is on the comedy stage.
There is no one else like him and that is why it is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Steve Hughes!
