The British Comedy Awards

It's the 25th year of The British Comedy Awards. Unlike in previous years, the show is not live on TV (boo!) so we already know the winners... see the news story below if you want to know who won what right now. Even with prior knowledge of who is going to step up to collect the coveted prizes, it's still a programme worth tuning in for, as unlike the BAFTAs etc, the speeches are entertaining. Jonathan Ross is, as is tradition, the host. Channel 4, 9pm.

Also new: Sweat The Small Stuff; Live At The Apollo; and repeats including the flop Keith Lemon: The Film. Schedule
