Count Arthur Wins Best Radio Sitcom 2016 Award
The results of the Comedy.co.uk Awards 2016 have been revealed and Count Arthur Strong’s Radio Show! Christmas Specials have been voted Best Radio Sitcom 2016.
When told, Count Arthur remarked “I don’t know what to say! The last thing I won was a bottle of White Horse’s in a Knobbly Knees Contest at Butlins, Pwllheli. This is almost as good as that! Apart from the White Horse’s, obviously. I’m sure I speak for all at Komedia Entertainment and Smooth Operations when I say “thank you to all who voted for it/us”… What do I get?”
This is the 11th year British Comedy Guide has run its annual awards. Television event The British Comedy Awards have not taken place since 2014, making the Comedy.co.uk Awards one of the only chances for British comedy programmes and those who create and star in them to be celebrated, and the only awards in which the results are decided entirely by the public.
Tens of thousands of comedy fans cast votes over the past fortnight, first narrowing down all 346 comedy programmes broadcast on radio and television in 2016 into shortlists of six in each category, and then voting again to determine the eventual winners.
A huge thank you to them and many congratulations to everyone involved.
