This year's North West smile Comedy Awards were bigger and brasher than ever before and it's with that in mind that Designer Magazine set the challenge of being photographed with as many of the comedians and guests attending the awards. By the end of the evening Designer Magazine's Editor Alex McCann and graphic designer Mark Winstanley (aka The Original Hogg) had been snapped with cast members from Hollyoaks, Corrie and Early Doors as well as comedians Dave Spikey, Alan Carr, Jonathan Mayor and also Tracy and Charlotte Dawson.

While the rest of the press were at the back of the venue, repeatedly told to shut the f**k up by representatives from Manchester Confidential and Smile, Bruce Jones (Coronation Street's Les Battersby) remembered our revealing interview from last years awards and invited us to join him on the Top Table with Trevor Dwyer-Lynch (Patrick In Corrie) , Phoenix Night's Steve Edge and assorted leading figure's from the Manchester Comedy Circuit.

Look below for our 3am Girls style photo romp through the Comedy Awards!!!!
