Black Tie Comedy Awards 09 ~ The Show

The 1st ever Black Tie Comedy Awards took place in the Indigo 2 in the O2 arena. In plush surrounding with champagne, canapés, Sleek MakeUp goody bags and the funniest players in urban comedy; a little bit of history was made as there has never before been an event that has rewarded urban comedy in such a way.


The hosts for the evening were the beautiful Rachel Ritfeld and the very funny Kojo (who also are stars in new film release ‘Find Her Keep Her’).  Seriously check out Kojo on twitter he has jokes for days




Despite the event previously being rescheduled and the closure of the Blackwall tunnel on the day causing horrendous traffic and lateness! And even the fact that Bill Bellamy who was suppose to be the special guest not turning up the event was a great success and arguably most importantly side splittingly funny! The award winning Harmony Productions one of the companies behind the event said ‘Due to circumstances beyond our control. Bill Bellamy did not perform at Sunday’s comedy awards.  In keeping with the good spirit of the UK COMEDY awards, we held a successful ground breaking comedy awards that remained focused on celebrating the UK’s top performers.
