Onion On The Red Carpet At The Comedy Awards

We were lucky enough to bag some camera space alongside the red carpet at last week’s British Comedy Awards, so we sent two of our intrepid team down there to extract some chat from the award winners.

Sadly for TVO, the artists and shows that we celebrate on this site didn’t scoop as many gongs as we were hoping for (we was robbed!), but we did manage to find a few familiar faces, one of whom is definitely on our list and most of whom can claim some sort of connection to the folk who we write about*.

In the short video below you can see what Jack Whitehall wants to say to Lee Mack  about his suit, who Steve Coogan would give his award to, and how Johnny Vegas nearly killed someone with plastic flowers:

Many thanks to everyone who stopped by for a natter!

* In case you were wondering, here are a few of the TVO connections: Jack Whitehall has appeared on a fair few panel shows with Noel Fielding; Lee Mack shared a flat in Edinburgh with Noel; Reece Shearsmith of League of Gentleman featured in Ben Wheatley’s A Field In England, plus he and Steve Pemberton are responsible for Inside No. 9, a new comedy starring Katherine Parkinson and Ben Willbond (more about that soon!); Jeremy Dyson directed Psychobitches; Nina Conti appeared in Family Tree with Chris O’Dowd; Johnny Vegas and that kiss on last week’s Buzzcocks…

  1. Psychobitches was robbed! And Steve Coogan’s speech should not have been cut off on the transmission. Love, Barbara Date: Fri, 20 Dec 2013 13:55:26 +0000 To: barbara1926@live.co.uk
