Since winning the BBC New Comedy Award for Stand-up as well as CityLife Best Newcomer of the Year in 2001, Alan Carr has become one of the hottest comedy stars in Britain.

There were also nominations for Best New British Comedy & Best Comedy Entertainment Personality at the 2009 British Comedy Awards. Alan Carr: Chatty Man is now firmly established as one of the nation's favourite entertainment TV shows.
His New Year Specstaculars aired on New Year's Eve 2011, 2012 and 2013 on Channel 4 and his Summer Specstaculars include a Grand National Special in 2013 and 2014. And he has performed for her Majesty The Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.
