Tom Ballard will this evening host a complete episode of Tonightly that has been rebadged as Conservatively….
As this selection of items illustrates, it will attempt to put some balance back into the ABC that its critics reckon has been absent.
hile not directly in response to Daisy Cousin’s New Daily piece about our show today,
Executive producer Dan Ilic tell TV Tonight it will include a Lefty Boot Camp package from Jazz Twemlow on how the left aren’t cool any more.
“We’ve commissioned a piece from a conservative comedian based in Adelaide, James McCann who is arguing for the defunding of contemporary art spaces like the new NGV. Tom Ballard will be doing an entire monologue from a right wing perspective,” he says.
“Also Richard De Natale will join Tom by satellite link, and Tom will destroy his arguments on global warming using conservative logic.”
The show’s final live episode is on Thursday.
9:30pm tonight on ABC Comedy.
