Chortle.The results of the Chortle Awards 2015 have been announced.

Run by the website Chortle, the awards - which primarily focus on live stand-up comedy - have been running since 2002, with the winners picked via a public vote based on jury-selected shortlists.

The trophies were handed out at a live ceremony in London, with Clive Anderson acting as host.

James Acaster and Bridget Christie were the big winners, with two prizes each. However, the popular new live show Funz And Games, failed to win up a single one of its four nominations.

Below are the shortlists, with winners highlighted:
