Nasal joke-cracking larrikin swaps radio for the stage

COMEDIAN Dave Hughes is swapping The Project panel desk for the stage this year.

Affectionately known as Hughesy, the nasal joke-cracking larrikin has also said goodbye to over a decade of pre-dawn starts with his final Nova Melbourne radio breakfast shift last year.

Over the years he has always loved jumping on a plane to check in with his fans all over the country; which is what he'll be doing come November, with his brand new show Pointless.

He will perform at the Pilbeam Theatre on November 21.

Recently speaking to southern media, Dave explained his joy of being on the road again.

"I love it. I want to hit every regional area in Australia basically," he said.

"It sounds corny but I'm loving seeing Australia and getting out to places I haven't been to or haven't been for a long time."

Talking about the meaning behind the title of the show, Dave said it's about not taking life or himself too seriously.

"Pointless is a philosophy that I remind myself of all the time - that the sun's going to burn out in a billion years and everything that's ever been known about the earth will disappear. "
