News : Steve Hughes announces new comedy shows ‘Are You Serious? this May’

By on March 9, 2019

Iconic Australian comedian and self-proclaimed convict wizard, Steve Hughes, has announced a string of shows dubbed, ‘Are You Serious?’ across Australia this May. Bringing his hilarious, raw, confronting and at times alarming views of Australian culture, free speech and of course, heavy metal.

Steve Hughes is no stranger to the Australian metal movement. During the late 80s, Hughes joined prolific Sydney based thrash metal band, Mortal Sin and was also the founding member and drummer of the black metal band, Slaughter Lord.

Steve comments on the show, ‘Free speech isn’t all that free anymore. So come and see me now in the comfort of a beautiful theatre because, who knows perhaps one day in the future the only way to enjoy comedy will be in a deserted warehouse in a forest where you’ll need a secret code to get in! ‘

The issues Steve addressed a decade ago regarding the direction the world was heading in were simply brushed off as a conspiracy theory. Today many of those issues are fact. He did warn you and things are only getting more outrageous…

Are You Serious? may not be a show for the professionally offended, but if you have a damn good sense of humour then strap in for the ride of your life!
