The National Comedy Awards were first held last year, dreamed up to replace the British Comedy Awards which were scrapped in 2014 after running for 24 consecutive years.
Linked to Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer charity camapign, they aim to celebrate "the UK's most brilliant comedy content and creators".
The first ceremony saw trophies awarded to the likes of Taskmaster, Katherine Ryan, Sean Lock, Sex Education, Ricky Gervais and Munya Chawawa.
