Chortle Awards 2013 - Full Results

Monday 25th March 2013 @ 10:07pm

Chortle. The results of the 2013 Chortle Awards have been announced.

The awards, now in their tenth year, are organised by the news and review website Chortle. They primarily aim to recognise the year-round contribution to comedy of stand-up comedians operating on the live circuit.

The results were announced at a ceremony in London hosted Jo Brand. The shortlist was drawn up by a panel of comedy reviewers, with the winners determined via a public vote conducted online earlier in the month.

It was a good night for former double-act Lee & Herring, with Stewart Lee winning Best Tour and Richard Herring winning Best Internet Show, and the duo also jointly awarded for their Fist Of Fun DVD release.

Canadian comedian Tony Law was also popular with voters, winning both the Club Comic category and taking away the coveted 'Best Show' title too.
