The Scottish Comedy Award winners have been announced and comedian Arnold Brown was rewarded the Lifetime Achievement Accolade.
The lifetime achievement award was decided by a panel of Scottish stand up comedians and the awards organiser Alan Anderson said ‘he set up the awards because he thought Scottish talent was overlooked by UK-wide awards’.
Arnold Brown was pleased to receive the Lifetime Achievement award and stated ‘It's always been great to be regarded as the comedian's comedian, but my real ambition has always been to be the bank manager's comedian.’ Alan Anderson said that awarding Arnold the lifetime achievement award was ‘the easiest decision the judging panel made.’
Other award winners included Billy Kirkwood (Best Compere), Daniel Sloss (Best TV Comedian), Gary Little (Best Headliner).
Awards host and stand-up comedian Fred MacAulay was awarded the Best Radio Comedian and the Best Event was awarded to Glasgow Stands up for the Clutha.
