Nominations for each of the prize categories were opened at the start of the year, and in March a panel whittled the longlist down to the shortlists seen above.

The winners will be announced on 4th August. The organisers say: "This evening, Tuesday 9th June, should have seen Scott Agnew and Mark Nelson return as hosts at the Scottish Comedy Awards. Sadly we still cannot gather. But hopefully by Tuesday 4th August we will be able to get together, probably only outdoors, and celebrate the best of Scotland's funny folk. So Scottish Comedy Folk... Stick Tuesday 4th August in your diary for an evening at Rotunda Drive In Comedy Club."

The winners of this year's Lifetime Achievement, Outstanding Achievement, and Outstanding Contribution titles will be "announced closer to the event".
