Mrs. Hughes

The Fox Theatre
Hutchinson, KS

Mrs. Hughes . . . What a funny lady!  This is one of the best comedians I've seen in a long while.  Definitely an adult show, and so very funny.

Mrs. Hughes covered everything from aging to body size issues to the battle of the sexes, and just individual everyday topics that we all face.   All of it done in a humorous fashion.  She had the crowd laughing for a full hour, non-stop.  She did tell a few jokes, but her act consisted primarily of off the cuff remarks about the issues of the day that required a bit of thought.  It sounded funny when she said it and then if you thought about it for just a minute your realized that there was a whole other dimension to what she had just said and you started laughing all over again.

The theatre was packed.  She had an amazing turn out.  Each of those attending left the theatre this night with lots of sore ribs from all the laughing.  This would include Mrs. Hughes.  At one point she related an experience she had at the doctor and the sound engineer provided an echo.  It was done so superbly that Mrs. Hughes started laughing and couldn't stop.  It was fun to watch.  Laughter is the universal language!

Ever the gracious hostess, Mrs. Hughes met everyone in the lobby afterward for a meet and greet.  She provided photos of herself and she signed them individually to each person by name.  What a refreshing change from the usual meet and greets.  She also posed for photos, shook hands and stayed around to talk to all her fans.  Mrs. Hughes is definitely a class act!
