British Comedy Award noms

The nominations for the British Comedy Awards 2009 have been released, and semi-improv Beeb sitcom ‘Outnumbered’ leads the field with an impressive 5 noms.

Other funny shows/men/women/things include Michael McIntrye and Alan Carr who are both up for three awards including, Best Comedy Entertainment Personality. This year's awards will be held on December 20th and will see Jonathan Ross return as host, after he ducked out of presenting duties last year because he was on the phone...or something.

It’s an impressive list of genuine great Brit comedy, so the next time you hear someone moan about the state of telly these days tell ‘em to stick it up their arse and show ‘em this lot.
