Vale ABC Wednesday Night Comedy for 2022

Okay, yes, the ABC are going to be showing a Wil Anderson comedy special next Wednesday night, but it’s hardly like that invalidates the premise of this blog post. Zing? At least with an Anderson stand-up special there’ll be a lot less of Anderson actually laughing. Which to be fair, was often understandable during Question... Read More »

The ABC: Young people need not apply

Turns out the ABC has given heaps of young people opportunities recently! And not almost none like you... Read More »

Questions, Questions

Question Everything is back. For those of you thinking “hang on, a panel show taking a satirical look at the week in news? Didn’t Win the Week just finish up?” let us reassure you that yes, they are the same show. In much the same way that The Weekly and Mad as Hell (RIP) covered... Read More »

Oh We’ve Got a Question All Right

Press release time! SO AMAZING!: ABC SHOW’S SHOCK ANNOUNCEMENT An ABC Show has an announcement, that announcement is a shock and someone thinks it’s amazing news. How enticing! No wonder you clicked.

Vale Question Everything

And once again we say goodbye to a series nobody asked for. Usually when the ABC serves up yet another head-scratcher there’s some kind of demented logic behind it – and by “demented logic” we mean “external funding body”. But every now and again there’s a show like Question Everything, some utterly pointless slab of... Read More »

Might as well Question Everything

It’s not a good sign when the ABC starts promoting your replacement when you’ve still got weeks to go. And what’s this? Okay, it’s shit news, but it’s no surprise – this is sizzle for a return next year though, right? Wait, so they’re advertising it now even though it’s not going to air for... Read More »

Question Everything, especially the promo interviews

In an appearance on Molloy, Wil Anderson said a few things which tell us more about why Question Everything is so deeply, deeply... Read More »

Everything is Questions

We’re only two weeks in and it’s rapidly becoming clear that despite being titled Question Everything, nobody at the ABC got around to questioning why this show needed to be made.
