Comedian Nazeem Hussain took to Twitter to call out a TV guide that mistakenly listed him as The Project’s Waleed Aly.
Contrary to what you may read, Hussain hosted the ABC show Australia Talks last night alongside Annabel Crabb, not Aly.
The error was published in Binge TV.
According to TV Black Box, Binge TV is made by Pagemasters, who distribute nationally to both Nine and Newscorp newspapers.
Hussain posted about the mixup on Twitter.

Unsurprisingly, the comedian was not the only person that took to Twitter.

This is not the first time Hussain has been mistaken for The Project host.
In 2014, The Age published a photo of Hussain while announcing that Aly had landed a role on The Project.

Interestingly, Karl Stefanovic and David Koch never seem to get mistaken for one another.
