  STEVE HUGHES ANNOUNCES 'WHILE IT'S STILL LEGAL' TOUR
11th July 2013

steve hughes



Direct from sell-out shows at the Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and New Zealand Comedy Festivals, the sublime Australian comic and ex Heavy-Metal drummer returns to UK shores to embark upon his second solo tour.

"MAKES ARMAGEDDON SOUND LIKE A PROPER LAUGH RIOT" - ROLLING STONE

He stormed the UK last year with his sell-out debut tour, with extra dates added due to phenomenal demand. On TV, he's recently performed stellar sets on Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), Stand Up For The Week (CH4) and Dave's One Night Stand.

"ROCK N' ROLL COMIC... HARD-EDGED, SMART AND VERY FUNNY" - TIME OUT

This brand new show, 'While It's Still Legal', features more thoughtful, outspoken social commentary courtesy of a masterful, erudite and provocative performer. Laid-back, effortless charm and caustic anti-establishment humour from a truly unique, world-class performer.

"OUTSTANDING. HUGHES IS GOLD" - METRO

The 'While Its Still Legal' tour takes in 49 dates over a two-month period starting on 5th September at Wolverhampton's Slade Rooms and culminating on 6th December at the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen.
