Best Independent Podcaster – Irish Web Awards 2011

October 23, 2011


We are genuinely surprised and thrilled to have won the Best Independent Podcaster award at the 2011 Irish Web Awards last night in the Mansion House. The Comic Cast began life back in 2008 and since then we’ve knocked out a show every two weeks (give or take a week – you know what we’re like!). We’ll continue reviewing comics and interviewing artists and just generally having a laugh. We hope you’ll continue to join us.
