Busting out of the comedy scene already wearing a suit and tie, John Conway is ready to be the tonight show host Australian TV never knew it needed.
John Conway has talked his way onto ABC2 and John Conway Tonight is going on the telly – late night talk shows are back in Australia, baby!
At 9pm every Sunday from 16th April for twelve weeks, ABC2 will air the smallest tonight show in the world, from the smallest nightclub in the world. John will dance, entertain, interview smashing guests and endeavour to keep the chaos in order, all while the literal and metaphorical walls of his own show collapse around him.
He’ll be joined by his sidekick Aaron Chen, his manager Robbie Tarocash and the best handpicked Australian comedic talent, including: Will Erimya, Jenna Owen, Ben Russell, Victoria Zerbst, Penny Greenhalgh, Sam Campbell, Clinton Haines, Tom Walker and Edan Lacey.
"I've scoured the Australian comedy scene and have brought together some of the cleverest idiots it has to offer. We're on to something here – can somebody please help me find out what," said Conway.
Coming at you from a cosy small bar where pizzas are served mid-show and there’s every chance of interruption, it’s a tonight show on the edge of reason. A riot of characters and controlled chaos, and an absurd and hilarious tribute to late night TV.
It’s John Conway Tonight!
Rebecca Heap, Head of Programming, said “It’s mad, it’s anarchic, it’s bursting with talent, and it’s just the sort of show ABC2 loves to discover and bring to a wide audience. Sunday nights won’t quite be the same again.”
John Conway Tonight is a GNWTV production, filmed in front of a live audience. It will screen on ABC2, ABC iview, ABC2 Facebook and ABC TV YouTube on Sundays at 9pm from Sunday, April 16.
