THE British Comedy Awards 2009, that AGM for funny men and the odd funny woman, is an odd thing where the rebels, those sayers and doers of things “out of the box”, “left field” and way cray-zee arrive on stage to collect an award. Like all awards do, these are awards for media compliancy, for being acceptably funny and funny enough to be on the telly.

And they came to chuckle: Vivienne Westwood went for visual gags with her Quene Elizabeth I impression, Pamela Anderson raised a smile, Griff Rhys Jones, Ash Attalla, Beth Cordingly, a child with a descriptive funny name – Tyger Drew Honey – Keith Allen, Tom Felton, Rob Brydon, Claudia Winkleman, Peter Capaldi , Lee Majors and his wife Faith, Pixie Lott, funny looking Katie Price, Steve Benham, Leigh Francis, critic gone native Charlie Brooker, Sir Terry Wogan, Simon Bird, the great Harry Hill, Joe Calzaghe and Kristina Rihanoff, Alice Beer, Davina McCall, Jane Goldman, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, Armando Iannucci, John Thomson, Paul Kaye, Jack Dee and comedy singing act JLS all battled whether to go for the GQ cover pose (suit, tie and serious face) or jaunty jig pose?

And everyone laughed and laughed and lauged until their heads fell off…
