Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2019

Congratulations to the nominees and winners of the 39th year of the Edinburgh Comedy Awards now sponsored by TV channel Dave.

Best Comedy Show was won by Jordan Brookes for his show I’VE GOT NOTHING.

Best Newcomer was won by Catherine Cohen for her show THE TWIST…? SHE’S GORGEOUS.

The Panel Award went to Jessica Brough, Founder of Fringe of Colour.

Well done to all the nominees who made up very talented shortlists.

How amazing to think that next year will be the Award’s 40th anniversary.

I was very privileged to be a judge on these Awards, then sponsored by Perrier, in 1985. That year’s winner were a brilliant group called Complicit√©. And look what happened to them!
