British Comedy Awards 2013: Jack Whitehall, Alan Carr and David Mitchell shortlisted
Who should be crowned the King or Queen of British comedy?
Graham Norton and Sarah Millican will battle other comedians to be crowned king or queen of laughs at the 24th British Comedy Awards.
Fans voted Jack Whitehall as their victor last year, but it remains to be seen whether the 25-year-old stand-up can defend his throne.
Other contenders for the prestigious title include David Mitchell from Peep Show, BAFTA-winning comedian Lee Mack and Norton's fellow chat show supremo Alan Carr.
The King or Queen of Comedy prize is the only category at the British Comedy Awards chosen by the public.
Renowned funnyman Jonathan Ross will host the awards next month, which will see Miranda Hart, James Corden and Ant & Dec compete for honours.
Awards will be presented in 15 categories including Best Comedy Actor and Actress, Best New British TV Comedy and the Outstanding Achievement Award.
Russell Brand, David Walliams, Peter Kay and Ricky Gervais are among winners to have walked away with gongs in previous years.
The British Comedy Awards 2013 will be broacast live from Wembley's Fountain Studios on Thursday 12 December.
