The British Comedy Awards nominations

Jonathan Ross returns to hosts The British Comedy Awards, the UK's premier comedy awards ceremony, LIVE on Channel 4 on 12th December 2012.

Before a room of comedic greats, and with help from some A-List guests, Jonathan will reveal the winners. And the bickering will finally stop as Britain will vote to decide who the UK's funniest star is and crown their 2012 King or Queen of Comedy. Voting for this coveted award will open during the Nominations show on Sunday 2nd December at 10.30pm.

There will also be two special awards given out on the night ‘The British Comedy Outstanding Achievement Award' and ‘The Writer's Guild of Great Britain Award'.
