From working as a brickie to selling milkshakes, Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes has had his fair share of employment stories. Hughesy chats to The Brief ahead of the RCSA Industry Awards where he will be the MC of the Australian event in June.
Dave Hughes knows what rejection looks and feels like; he reckons he has been sacked from more jobs than he cares to count. Despite this, the popular Australian comedian has been able to find enough self-belief to keep forging ahead to establish a career many would be envious of.
Today Hughes, who is commonly known as “Hughesy”, is a leading comedic media personality with a drive-time radio show now on the HIT Network, and has a new television show as well as stand-up performances and hosting gigs.
