TVO @ The British Comedy Awards 2014… Sort Of.

THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN FOR THE VELVET ONION. THE VIDEO WAS EDITED BY MYSELF, USING MATERIAL SHOT BY NIGEL THOMAS AND LOUIS CHRISTIE, AFTER I ARRANGED FOR THEM TO REPRESENT TVO AT THE BRITISH COMEDY AWARDS 2014.

Earlier this week, The British Comedy Awards 2014 took place in Wembley, with a number of TVO regulars winning awards, including Aisling Bea, Katherine Parkinson, Moone Boy and Toast of London.

TVO had been graciously invited to attend the event, but couldn’t make it on the night, so we sent musician, actor and presenter Nigel Thomas (formerly of criminally underrated band The Foxes, now a solo artist) along to report in our place.  This is the result…

Our huge thanks to Nigel and collaborator Louie Christie for attending the event, and standing around for hours whilst the vast majority of stars ignored the ‘blue carpet’ to savour the delights of the main room. Thanks also to Matt Berry and Sandi Toksvig for agreeing to speak to us, and Seann Walsh and Paul Chowdhry for bringing their comedic game to the table.
