Special lineup for Trophy Room Australia Day special

19 January, 2011 by IF

Press release from ABC TV

Australia’s everyman comedian, Peter Helliar, will be celebrating Australia Day in most true blue manner – playing backyard cricket with family and friends, while enjoying a few snags from the BBQ, and listening to Triple J’s Hot 100 amid the fresh air.


Later on he’ll be settling a few friendly arguments on ABC TV’s The Trophy Room where his guests will be:

Lauren Jackson (Olympic basketballer – Australia’s best all-time female player)

Lee Kernaghan (Singer/Aust of Year 2008)

Tom Gleeson (Comedian)

Rebecca DeUnamuno (Comedian)

Tonight, the whole program will be dedicated to Australian sporting trivia in a special “Aussie Made” show. Joining the ringmaster, Peter Helliar, as usual, will be team captains – ABC sports reporter Amanda Shalala and broadcaster Adam Spencer.

Playing alongside Amanda and Adam for sporting trivia supremacy in The Trophy Room arena will be a swag of true blue Aussies and mystery guests.

After a hard day around the BBQ, kick back and celebrate all things Australian. The Trophy Room will get you into the mood with a fun-filled show jammed packed with Aussie sporting trivia, surprise mystery guests and an Australian icon or two.

Grab a lamington and let the games begin!
