We are delighted to congratulate Amy Annette for winning The Comedy 50:50 and Comedy Crowd Industry Award. The winner is nominated by comedy producers, directors, agents and anyone who works in comedy, and the award was presented to Amy last night at The Funny Women Awards.
Amy said: I’m so pleased to be nominated as, despite my therapist’s best efforts, the opinion of my peer group and industry really is the only thing that matters to me. Making comedy / TV is just the best thing in the world when you get the right collaborators, and I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the industry’s best and brightest. This is going to really put me back mental health wise, but it’s absolutely worth it! Thank you.
