Aaron Chen gets ABC2 Tonight show
Sidekick Aaron Chen will get to host his own ABC2 show after the leading man took ill.
It’s taken a while but TV Tonight can reveal ABC2 is proceeding with Aaron Chen Tonight as a replacement for John Conway Tonight.
Chen, who was a sidekick to Conway, steps into the hosting role due to the show being pulled because of illness.
It’s a rare showbiz opportunity for the young comic, who gets to rise to the occasion after some flak for ABC2’s Sydney vs Liverpool game.
GNW TV, which has been rehearsing and recording with Chen, will complete production before ABC2 announces a return date.
