Hold the phone. Is another variety show waiting in the wings?
Producers of a new Tonight show Fun Times with Simon Taylor are hoping to find sponsors to help get their show onto Network 10. Word is the pilot (which was not filmed for Pilot Week) has been well received within 10.
A pilot hosted by comedian and writer Simon Taylor was filmed with guests Shaun Micallef, Stephen Curry, Wayne Brady, Osher Gunsberg and sidekick Heidi Valkenburg.
Taylor is stand-up and former Channel 31 presenter who wrote for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno at the age of 24, plus Mad as Hell.
The Fun Times team Artie Laing, Antonio Cafasso and Josh Samuels are convinced Taylor is the next big thing ….and with Leno and Micallef on the CV who are we to argue?
