A Couple of Chortles!

by Linzy 8th Feb 2011 | 24 comments


The Chortle Awards were announced last night and Tim won a ‘Best Musical or Variety Act‘ and ‘Best Tour‘ for his orchestra show, to go with the ‘Best Musical or Variety Act’ award that he won last year!

As he’s in Australia at the moment, Tim sent the organisers a nice message, saying: “I wish I could be there and thanks to everybody. I am very pleased, lying here on my bed on the edge of the West Australian desert listening to frogs, to know that I beat the Boy With Tape On His Face and the rest, as they are all incompetent bastards.

The Boy With Tape On His Face, however, still won ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ while Karen Koran won the ‘Offstage Contribution’ award. A full list of the winners can be found on Chortle.

Thank you to all who voted, now if wouldn’t mind all pitching in a few pence each because I think he’s going to need a bigger mantlepiece…

Blimey, feels like a while since something I voted for succeeded but YIPPEE!!!

Your tweet arrived whilst I was in a massive traffic jam on M42. I didn’t notice it as I was giving added cheer to my fellow jammed doing my best behind-the-wheel disco dancing to the pope disco song and then spelling out “cheese” with my hands. It was highly amusing to everyone. I was glad to make them smile.

Unfortunately I am now suffering after succombing to mature cheddar, camembert and stilton… pass me the gaviscon please…
