Comedy king ready to reveal all on new tour

WELCOME to this week's edition of the Fox Files where you'll find the hottest gossip around the Central Queensland region.

YOU'LL be in hysterics when comedian Dave Hughes takes to the Great Western Hotel in Rockhampton next Thursday.

The comedy king has embarked on his Hairy tour, a fitting title as he's supposedly had no haircuts since last year's Melbourne Comedy Festival.

What has prompted his new look? A fringe which now resembles a face curtain?

You'll find out in Dave's hilarious stand-up comedy show.

And afterwards, you can dance like there's no tomorrow with the venue's DJ in the Chute Three Bar.

Tickets can be purchased at www.greatwesternhotel.com.au.
