Chortle Awards

The Chortle Awards started in 2001 as a compliment to the work of the website throughout the year run by Steve Bennett. The awards have supported and brought attention to some of the best new and established comedians around the world and the event is always attended by a stellar line up of guests to present the awards.

The categories for the awards include Best Newcoer, Breakthrough Act, Club Comic, Best Compere, Best Character Improv or Sketch Act, Best Music and Variety Awards, Best Show, Best Tour, Best DVD, TV Award, Radio Award and the Internet Award.
