WEDNESDAY MAN OF THE YEAR
8.30PM, FOXTEL COMEDY ★★★
Robin Williams plays a popular TV talk-show host who runs for president. Appointing his gag writers as key advisers, the longshot candidate gradually becomes a serious contender for some Oval Office action. A rare mainstream comedy that can be both enjoyed and admired. Not all the risks taken pay off, but some of Williams’ best work is always on the money.
