Jack Whitehall to Return as Host of the BAFTA LA Britannia Awards
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
Jack Whitehall is probably going to be the latest British comedian whose name you’ll have to commit to memory.
Jack Whitehall is a massive success in the UK and is making his way to have that popularity crossover in the U.S. Already, he’s hosted the Britannia Awards here in LA once before and made a nice stand-up debut on The Tonight Show.
His return as the Britannia Awards is just another stop on his rise stateside.
Amy Schumer Will Be The Latest to Receive Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award For Excellence in Comedy
It’s already been a banner year for Schumer and we guess we have to make that banner a little bit bigger.
Amy Schumer is set to join the esteemed group of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sacha Baron Cohen, Matt Stone & Trey Parker, Ben Stiller, and Betty White for winning the British Academy for Film and Television Awards/BAFTA’s Charlie Chaplin Award for Excellence in Comedy.
We’ll be curious to see what Amy has in store for 2016 that might possibly top her 2015.
