British Comedy Awards 2012
It’s the British Comedy Awards tonight on Channel 4.
Harry Hill is up for three awards, with this being the seventh year in a row that he has nominated. TV Burp is up for Best Comedy Entertainment Programme and Harry is nominated for Best Comedy Entertainment Personality and Best Male Television Comic.
The show is on from 9pm tonight.
The Guardian has suggested that Harry’s omission from the King or Queen of Comedy could suggest that he is going to get a lifetime achievement award. Whilst it may be a timely award after the end of TV Burp, Harry got the same nominations plus This Is Jinsy last year and didn’t get a single win.
Also, to celebrate both 75th anniversary of the Beano Annual, a special limited edition version with a special cover has been produced for the awards, featuring a number of comedians nominated tonight, which sees the return of Harry Hill from The Dandy!
Editor in Chief of The Beano, Mike Stirling, has said:
I wonder how many of this year’s British Comedy Award winners were inspired to become comics after reading The Beano, the World’s funniest comic? I hope The Beano continues to be the first stop for jokes, laughs and pranks for the next generation of British Comedy Award winners too!
See the cover after the break…
