The TV and radio programmes shortlisted for the Comedy.co.uk Awards 2020 have been revealed.
Sixty programmes across ten categories are now in the running for the title of Comedy Of The Year.
The shortlists were compiled from a public vote involving every new British comedy TV and radio programme broadcast last year. Running over the past ten days, tens of thousands of votes were cast to whittle down all 357 nominees to just six in each category.
The final round of voting is now open, and will run until the end of Sunday 24th January. The winners will be determined entirely by the public vote, with no jury, weighting, or other mechanism involved.
Nominees can be seen listed below, or viewed by taking part in the vote.

This is the 15th 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 now one of the only chances for British comedy programmes and those who create and star in them to be celebrated; and the only TV and radio comedy awards in which the results are decided by the public alone.
