we just wanted to say a huge congratulations to everyone who was nominated for a comedy award today. both lists, newcomer and best show are positively brimming with some of our favourite comedians and friends and we're absolutely delighted for them.
we're particularly delighted for james acaster as we share an agent and last year a dressing room, and is one of the nicest blokes in comedy. his show this year is such a funny, enjoyable hour. dr brown aka phil burgers is one of our all-time favourite performers and like us, is an associate of soho theatre so we're over the moon for him, as well as sketch heroes pappy's who are a constant inspiration to anyone working in sketch comedy.
we're also really happy for david trent and joe lycett, two gimp favourites who were nominated for best newcomer in another list packed full of ridiculous talent.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL! ENJOY IT!
