A technical gaffe on The Sunday Project has left viewers in stitches after Tommy Little accidentally poked fun at his co-host Lisa Wilkinson 'having a moustache'.

The comedian was left apologising after an interview with Brisbane basketball star Victor Law led to an awkward exchange on the panel.

Victor Law, of the Brisbane Bullets, appeared on the program crediting his team's current success on their facial hair.

"It's just a good shave job, all of us. It's a privilege to have facial hair," he joked during his interview.


Tommy jumped in to point out that Victor did not really sport much of a moustache, compared to that of his co-host.

At which point however, the camera panned to Lisa, instead of guest panellist Peter van Onselen.

Lisa played along, acting outraged and asking, "What?!"

Tommy was quick to apologise saying: "That was a director's fault! That was meant to go to PVO (Peter van Onselen). I'm so sorry," he said.

The mishap had the entire panel laughing.

Tommy Little has been at the centre of a few mishaps on The Project of late.

Last month, the host copped some backlash for a 'derogatory post' which featured his co-star Carrie Bickmore.

The comedian ended up apologising after writing in the caption alongside a photo of himself and Carrie: “Tweedledee and Tweedledumbc**t”.

He also shocked viewers when he trapped guest panellist Susie Youssef on the spot with an X-rated joke about her 'box'. Tommy’s suggestive question was met with giggles across the desk while a blushing Susie, 37, attempted to clarify that her ‘box’ wasn’t euphemistic but an actual real box.
