A companion series to The British Comedy Awards, which is being broadcast nightly in the run-up to the main awards ceremony. Comic's Choice is a celebration of comedy and great comedic talents.

Bill Bailey hosts the show. In each episode he chats with a British A-list comedian about which comedy performers, actors and shows they consider to be the greatest.

The guest, given the pick of history and the present day, creates his/her own fantasy line-up of nominees and winners for categories echoing those of The British Comedy Awards.

Covering topics such as 'Best Sitcom', 'Best Male Television Comic' and so on, with clips to illustrate each nominee, each guest says who they love, what makes them laugh and reveals their guilty pleasures.

Producers say: "With other smaller, alternative categories and audience interaction thrown in, the show is not just informative and entertaining - but fun, funny and memorable."
