The channel launched on 7 March 2005 with a three-dimensional logo of the numeral two. The previous idents were produced in part by Amanda Dennis, and were used in some form until the 2008 rebrand.
On 8 February 2008, ABC2 updated to a yellow logo, and slogan to "Connecting 2", as well as moving its digital terrestrial broadcast from Channel 21 to Channel 22. In addition to this, the slogan "More Choice, More Often" was replaced with "Connecting 2". After concerns in some sections of the media that the 43-year-old Lissajous curve brand was to disappear completely, ABC management reaffirmed that it would remain in use by the corporation.
On 1 April 2011 the logo was rebranded to look similar to that of the logo used by the ABC (formerly ABC1), and the slogan replaced with "Always Brighter". In 2014, following the main channel's rebrand to the 1974 Lissajous curve logo, new variants of the ABC2 logo were introduced to fit with the classic Lissajous curve. However, the 2011 logo remained in use on-screen with it and the 2014 variant used interchangeably.
The ABC renamed ABC2 to ABC Comedy on 4 December 2017. It is a channel which specialises in comedy programs, including original shows, stand-up routines, international offerings and it's first announced show Tonightly with Tom Ballard; a news-based comedy show.
