A list of winners from The British Comedy Awards 2009

Too many articles are filled with useless opinions on things. I should know, I’ve written thousands of the bloody things. They parp on and hit you with so much filler that it’s like being hit in the face repeatedly with loft insulation.

Worse still, some of these so-called articles carry jokes about loft insulation that don’t really work, and yet, are passed off as if they’re hilarious. Not to mention the post-modern deconstructing of an article by referencing it in itself. It’s pathetic isn’t it? Shoot me now.

As such, I’m now going to give you just the facts. After I’ve stopped wittering on of course. Here is a very factual list of the winners from The British Comedy Awards 2009.

About the author

I'm Mof Gimmers.

I've been writing about TV for a long time. I love it and loathe it in equal measures. I'm pretty sure the TV feels the same away about me too.
