Horrible Histories wins Comedy.co.uk Award
Lion Television is delighted to announce that 'Horrible Histories' has won 'Best TV Sketch Show' in the Comedy.co.uk Awards 2021.
In a category that included many "adult" sketch shows, it's a special achievement that a children's show won this public vote.
Writer and cast member Jess Ransom said "It means ever so much that people have taken the time to vote for us at all, to win is the icing on the cake.", while lead writer Ben Ward commented "Horrible Histories is such a pleasure to write it doesn't seem right that we get an award for it at all. But we're not giving it back."
Exec Producer Simon Welton added "The writers, production team, cast and crew all worked incredibly hard to make this series in the trickiest of times, so this is a lovely testimony to all of their magnificent effort - particularly as it's voted for by the public, which means everything to us."
The 9th series of the show is currently playing on CBBC, with a special BBC Centenary episode still to come this year.
