Jlc Picks Up Two Comedy Awards

by | 04 October 2007

Comedian Justin Lee Collins has claimed two gongs at the Loaded Laftas Comedy Awards.

The Bristolian was named funniest man, as well as picking up the funniest double act award for his partnership with Friday Night Project co-presenter Alan Carr.

Collins won two awards last year, taking the funniest programme award for the Friday Night Project as well as winning the funniest double act award for the first time.

Michelle Gomez, star of Channel 4 comedy Green Wing and wife of Pirates of the Caribbean star Jack Davenport, scooped the funniest woman prize for her performance as unhinged hospital HR manager Sue White.

And Vic Reeves was honoured with the Laftas legend award.

The Shooting Stars presenter, best known for his comedy partnership with Bob Mortimer, said: "I've won three Baftas and numerous other awards, but there comes a time in a man's life when he needs to look back and this is the best compliment," according to This Is North Scotland.

Chris Moyles, the self-proclaimed "saviour of Radio 1" was snubbed for the funniest radio show award, with the trophy going to his colleague Scott Mills.

The Mighty Boosh won the funniest TV programme award and Hot Fuzz followed its best comedy prize at the National Movie Awards with the funniest film gong at the ceremony.

Though he won three prizes last year, Russell Brand went unrewarded this year.
