We’re not sure why people persist in conducting on line polls for the purpose of dishing out honours. They are, after all, just an open invitation for a campaign to distort, rig or correct the results, depending on your point of view. The evidence goes as far back as 1999 when, incredibly, Belle & Sebastian beat out Steps and 5ive to take the prize for Brits Best British Newcomers.
Stewart Lee has his own set of reasons for decrying the Fosters Comedy God awards at this years Edinburgh Fringe Festival, but his throwaway line concerning The Frank Chickens has put them as firm favourites to win, ahead of more familiar names like Eddie Izzard, Bill Bailey and Flight Of The Conchords. It’s also given us a chance to dig out some old “We Are Ninja (Not Geisha)” vinyl to play on the show today (as well as an excuse to post Lee’s fantastic political correctness routine).
