I feel sorry for the 5 Perrier nominees, and especially Jason Manford. The snippet on the BBC website says
A stand-up comic hailed as a successor to Peter Kay is among the nominees for this year’s Perrier Comedy Award.
Who exactly? Why can’t they name him where he is due credit? Only opening the story do we find out what his name is.
Personally I hope Chris Addison wins, but that’s because he’s the only one of the lot I’ve seen live before.
