Black Tie Comedy Awards

HARMONY PRODUCTIONS & FUNNY BIZZ ENTERTAINMENT & PRESENT THE BLACK TIE COMEDY AWARDS 2009.

The first ever Black Tie Comedy Awards will be held in London on 29th November 2009, hosted by MTV Base’s Kojo and Rachel Ritfeld.

The night will celebrate the UK’s urban comedians and highlight the stars of the scene and celebrate the hard work they do all year round to bring you top quality belly hurting laughter. This black tie event promises to be a night of glamour, fun and entertainment with celebrities, sports personalities and some very special surprise guests to be announced. Bill Bellamy will be the special guest comedian from the USA.
Bill Bellamy is an award winning comedian and actor who rose to fame through the hugely respected HBO Def Comedy Jam show that propelled fellow African -American comedians Chris Rock, Chris Tucker and David Chappelle to international stardom. Bill Bellamy used this platform to coin the now internationally famous phrase booty call back in the early 1990’s. Bellamy’s clever wit and turn of phrase led to presenting roles on MTV and soon Bellamy was offered serious acting roles including Fled alongside Laurence Fishbourne and the Oliver Stone directed Any Given Sunday featuring Al Pacino, Cameron Diaz and a young Jamie Foxx.
