In 2007, Both of the ABC's channels were rebranded to a common theme with ABC1 adopting blue and ABC2 adopting yellow. A preview of the logo released beforehand without the ABC logo and the ominous run-up tagline 'Change is coming' made many Australians fear the ABC were about to retire the Lissajous curve.
This logo was designed by Phil Robson and unveiled at the same time as the main channel's redesign in 2011. But in July 2014, following the main channel's rebrand to the 1975 Lissajous curve logo, new variants of the ABC2 logo were introduced to fit with the classic Lissajous curve. However, the 2011 logo remains 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.
