Jordan Gray Named Comedy Breakthrough Star Award Winner

Critically-acclaimed comedian and singer Jordan Gray has been named as one of the recipients of the Comedy Breakthrough Star Award in The National Comedy Awards 2023.

Gray was named alongside Cheaters star Susan Wokoma and Am I Being Unreasonable? scene-stealer Lenny Rush.

The awards honour both emerging and established British comedy talent, with the public voting on key prizes in a variety of categories that celebrate the world of comedy in all its forms. Recent scripted and unscripted comedies and panel shows, plus the latest podcast jokers are all vying for votes.

Voting is now open for the other awards, with the winners announced at a glitzy red-carpet ceremony presented by Tom Allen at the Roundhouse in London on Friday 17 February.

Live on the night, viewers will also get to vote for the Best Stand-Up Show with the shortlisted acts announced closer to the ceremony. Plus, there will be awards for the three breakthrough stars.
