A comedy veteran with over two decades of experience, Steve Hughes has graced stages worldwide, from Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow to Live at the Apollo, performing in nearly 30 countries to rave reviews.

Steve shares his thoughts on returning, saying, “In early 2020 I headed off overseas for a three month tour of the UK and my beloved Ireland. Then BANG – They shut the world. Somehow three months became four years. But finally I made it back.  The time had come to get out there and do some Aussie shows. So grab a ticket and a beer – take a seat and let’s get some laughs happening in these the craziest of times.”

Adding to the excitement, Steve will personally select two comedians to open the shows in both Melbourne and Sydney. Stay tuned for the big reveal of these comedic talents!

Known worldwide for his hard-hitting, no-nonsense comedy style, Steve Hughes doesn’t hold back. Whether it’s confronting, engaging, or downright alarming, one thing is for sure – he’s always hilarious.

While Tough Love might not be everyone’s cup of tea, if you’ve got a damn good sense of humour, you’re in for the ride of your life!
