Good on you Hughesy for coming back to Adelaide, Good on the audience for buying tickets. We could see you were pumped. Token Events present Dave Hughes in his new fringe show 'Deluded' running as part of Adelaide Fringe Festival at The Garden of Unearthly Delights - The Vagabond at 8:15pm from February 12th until February 28th.
Hughesy is known for mostly improvising his show using his surroundings. His show on February 24th featured some late comers and you can't turn up to a comedian's show late without being a target of the show. He asked "if they had a good excuse?" and they said "their car broke down" and he said "sorry to hear that, glad you still made it. Where were you coming from?" They said "5 minutes away", his reply "did you ever think of maybe walking".
His material is often family based anecdotes of his life; he talked about how his 4 year old daughter asked "if mummy was still taking tablets to stop babies from coming" and she replied "no Daddy had an operation to stop babies permanently". The daughter's reply was "maybe you could have a baby with someone else before he comes home". He tells the audience his wife texted him saying "I'm sad I'll never fall in love with anyone else again" and he said "You could fall in love with me again if you like?" her response "not likely".
His family live in Melbourne and follow the AFL team Geelong, all except his 7 year old son who last time he visited Adelaide met Patrick Dangerfield and has supported Adelaide Crows ever since. Hughesy likes to tell people his son is a huge footy fan. People often ask who his favorite Geelong player is and he says "Eddie Betts". People say Betts doesn't play for Geelong anymore and his son says "That's right he plays for a good team."
Throughout his show he tells the audience 'Good on you, for coming out tonight, in fact good one everyone. You're such a great crowd, I'm pumped to be here". His line for the show was definitely 'Good on you' using it at least 10 times throughout, but he was genuine in his approach. The audience spent just over an hour in laughter with jokes about his family, sex, love, surfing, touring and more.
