The ABC is refusing to apologise for a comedy show repeatedly calling an Australian Conservatives candidate a 'c***'.

In March, the Tonightly show hosted by Tom Ballard mocked up a poster of by-election candidate Kevin Bailey.

In the segment, comedian Greg Larsen used the vile word to describe the former SAS soldier, who was running in the inner-Melbourne seat which Labor's Ged Kearney easily won.

'There is no anywhere on that poster so I've had to improvise and I put, "Kevin Bailey is a c***",' Larsen said to Ballard.

Communications Minister Mitch Fifield complained that segment had 'crossed a line' but the ABC's managing director Michelle Guthrie has dismissed his concern.

Internal correspondence between the ABC boss and the Turnbull Government, obtained by News Corp Australia, said an evaluation of complains found 'no breaches' adding the program had not set out to 'cause anyone personal offence through an absurd comedy sketch'.
