Black Tie Comedy Awards 2009

The Black Tie comedy Awards are taking place on Sunday 29th November at the Indigo2 in the O2 arena. A joint venture for Harmony Productions and Funny Bizz Entertainment, this is first of its kind and looks like a real celebration of the UK Urban comedy scene. The night will be hosted by MTV Base’s Kojo and model/actress Rachel Ritfeld (who replaces Sabrina Washington as she is still in the Jungle) and who coincidentally are the lead actors in new release ‘Find Her Keep Her’

In addition to this yummy package, award winning comedian Bill Bellamy has confirmed as a special guest  and receives the special achievement award. Now ladies we all know he is funny but he is also very hot too! But I digress!!!

Find Her Keep Her Film Premiere

It’s been 3 years in the making and a true a labour of love.  ‘Find Her Keep Her’ by first time British Nigerian director Namure Aibangbee premiered at the VUE cinema in the O2 Arena London. In lush surroundings, canapés were served courtesy of celebrity Chef Collin Brown which set the mood of the night. Everyone and their mum attended and was enjoyed by cast and guests such as


Lead male in the film Kojo (Charles Knight) who gave us ladies a treat  as he showed off a very defined body and his acting skills weren’t bad either! Here pictured with supporting actress Bianca Simmone who gave a great performance as the gold digging Denise


The beautiful Rachel Ritfeld (lead actress in the film who plays Simone) looked every bit the red carpet starlet as she attended with her new husband footballer Damien Francis


Also in attendance was Celebrity DJ Longers and actor Jordan Pitt who plays Tyler Babatunde
