What the Critics Say

"...acutely observed and cutting bone-deep. Steve delves into gutsier territory - racism, terrorism, homophobia - with an honesty and openness rarely seen among comics. His insights are spot-on, his opinions are intelligent and his jokes are top class." (The Guardian)
"...Hughes is gold!" (Metro)

    "My New Favourite Comedian"

    I first came across this guy while watching a
    Michael McIntyre performance, as he was a guest
    comedian. Having listened to the whole album I've
    discovered that he is an entirely different sort of
    comedian to McIntyre being deep, thoughtful &, above
    all, rock and roll.

    What I was expecting was him to be like the videos
    of him - brilliant in part but lacking in material.
    Happily the material I'd seen was as consistently
    good as the rest of it, with each line well honed &
    lots of material to get you thinking.

    As an example of his style of comedy there is his
    jokes about gay people. His twist on it is that
    straight people are the ones that are soft as gay
    people **** other men!
    Aside from this, there is his observations about
    England from an Australian perspective (e.g. that
    Welsh is made up by someone spilling a box of
    scrabble tiles!) & a material on the war on terror
    ('And what does War create? Terror!')

    So, all in all this is an interesting listen,
    slightly reminiscent of Bill Hicks & George Carlin's
    efforts but with the added benefit that Hughes'
    comedy is modern & relevant, delivered by a man who
    is very much alive. Here's to his continued success.

    One last thing is a track listing. Happily (unlike
    bands like 'Fallout boy'), what you see is what you
    (more or less) get.

    1. I'm Australian
    1. not 100% Australian
    2. No Smoking
    3. Sydneyharbouroperahouse
    4. Goths on the Beach
    5. I Want to be European
    6. The Sun's out in England
    7. Drink Driving
    8. Death Metal and Cooking
    9. Straight is the New Gay
    10. Nude in Shoes
    12. War on Horror
    13. The Dutch
    14. Drugs (Of course)
    15. Illusion of Boundries
    16. High on Fire (not so secret track)
