The public broadcaster has hosed down speculations in The Australian over the weekend that the Prime Minister will star in his own instructional TV show about clowning.
The newspaper reported the new show would follow Abbott as he goes about his day, apparently serving as a master class in Bouffon, the French art of clownish mockery.
SBS managing director Michael Ebeid tweeted “I want to state that the story in the Oz about SBS giving Abbott his own show is complete rubbish. The show will be shared between the entire Liberal frontbench and be called Jesters and Jokers: The Last Time We Let Buffoons Run Our Country.
