Poet Tim Key wins Edinburgh Comedy Award

1st September 2009

Poet Tim Key's The Slutcracker show at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival has landed him the main Edinburgh Comedy Awards prize.

Producer of the Edinburgh Comedy Awards Nica Burns described Tim's 55-minute performance of poetry and stand-up as 'adorably diffident'.

She said: 'His charming show is full of surprises. Tim has funny bones and is a star in the making.'

Other comedy winners at the former Perrier Awards ceremony included Jonny Sweet, who was named best newcomer.

Veteran organiser of the Free Fringe Peter Buckley-Hill also picked up the panel prize for embodying 'the spirit of the fringe'.

Commenting after he collected his GBP 8,000 reward for his win, Key said that it was nice to have his work recognised by so many people and 'reflects that my show was all right this year'.

Tim Key has also released a book entitled 25 Poems, 3 Recipes, and 32 Other Suggestions.
