“Some people think it’s this leftist communist propaganda show”

On Thursday 10 will screen a comedy special featuring The Project‘s Michael Hing (last week it also aired one by Sam Taunton).

Hing, whose credits include Where Are You Really From?, The Feed and Celebrity Letters and Numbers, has also given an interview to The Sydney Morning Herald.

“After 10 years, everyone knows about The Project,” he said. “Some people think it’s this leftist communist propaganda show. Other people think it’s this racist, alt-right show. There’s been a real variety of panellists and guests and hosts, so I can understand the criticism that people have of it not agreeing with their values.

“In my experience, it’s been the best. I mean, we joke about how the ABC has no money, but there are so many brilliant ideas at the ABC and there’s just no ability to execute them because of more than a decade of funding cuts. So the first thing I noticed at The Project is how incredible it is to never have to knock back a guest because you can’t afford to fly someone in.”

Long Live The Hing special airs on Thursday, September 28, at 8.30pm on 10.
