I'm assuming he is talking about this Tony Martin.

"Just interviewed lovely Bill Bailey for ABCTV with broken ribs. Fortunately, only involved sitting still. Should screen later this year."

I guess Tony M. thought of something he could pitch to the ABC that could be made on the cheap if it's just all interviews! Hurrah!

I just saw Tony's tweet. Just sitting and interviewing people?
He's similarities with Denton are increasing.

But he doesn't like Denton :) What are the other similarities other than appearance?

But yeah I did think straight of Enough Rope to be honest....

Very exciting! The title sounds a little like a Fry & Laurie sketch, but that's what makes it brilliant. Bring it on!

I think the difference between this and Enough Rope will be a lack of "tell us about the time you were raped by Society" while the camera zooms in on the interview subject's tears EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

Oh I don't expect it to be anything like Enough Rope by any means at all what-so-ever.

It was purely just the concept of a interview program. There's no sketch comedy, it's an interview program...

As if Tony's and Denton's style's are anything alike 13! Shame on you! :)

I'm hoping this is an interview programme where Tony talks to different comedians. Because that would be pretty interesting.
I just want to pop him on a bit of toast and eat him right up.
