The great British Comedy Awards are back! The British public is invited to crown your comedy royalty with the gold award for the best comedy performer of the year. Will it be Alan Carr, Britain’s most treasured Comedian who was recently voted the second most influential person on Twitter? Or will you vote for the most loved comedy performer David Mitchell who captains the award winning Would I Lie To You with fellow nominee Lee Mack, another successful British Comedian also among the finalists. Graham Norton, one of the best-known faces on British television, is on the list too, as well as Jack Whitehall, a successful stand-up actor whose sitcom Bad Education, starring himself as Alfie, is aired on BBC3 with much popularity. Last but not least, there is Sarah Millican, who released Chatterbox Live, the biggest selling stand-up DVD by a female comedian in the UK.
A hard choice to make! We talked to Eddie Izzard in the past who manages to connect people through language and laughter. In fact, no matter in which country you are, being able to make people laugh is one of the greatest skills. It makes us forget our worries for a while, makes us see our problems in perspective and puts us in a happy state of mind. Being, on top of it, able to connect with an ever more multicultural audience, speaking their language will surprise and add another portion of fun – no matter if in the Alan Carr Chatty Man Show, on the Graham Norton Show or Jonathan Ross Show.
