Inside No. 9 named Comedy Of The Year 2017

Inside No. 9 named Comedy Of The Year 2017


In the 12th annual Awards poll conducted by British Comedy Guide, the comedy anthology series took the coveted Comedy Of The Year title, as well as Best TV Comedy Drama, for 2017.

Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, who write and star in Inside No. 9, say of their win: "Our heartfelt thanks to British Comedy Guide for all their support over the years, as well as to the many comedy fans who voted. The phrase ´comedy drama´ was often a disguise for a not-particularly-funny comedy, and we´re delighted to have added thriller, horror, romance, slapstick and cryptic crossword clues into the mix.

"To win Comedy of the Year is the biggest twist of all (though we did guess it halfway through) and we´re genuinely thrilled. Thank you, from Cheese & Crackers."
