- The former drummer of thrash metal bands Mortal Sin, Slaughter Lord and Nasxul has one of the sharpest minds on the political comedy circuit but unlike most comedians who talk politics and war, Hughes doesnât rant and rave.

- Well my first love (and still) is music which I do when I get the time, but in hindsight the earliest influence was Bill Cosby; we used to listen to him as kids, me and my mates.
