Perrier Comedy Award: Laura Solon - Kopfrapers Syndrome: One Man and His Incredible Mind

In a star studded, champagne fueled Perrier Comedy Award extravaganza the award winners were announced by Paul Merton. Holyrood was mobbed as the lucky golden ticket holders flocked to soak up the glittery atmosphere, play table football, indoor bowling, sing karaoke, eat Thai food, drink cocktails and, of course, give a rousing cheer to the very deserving winners.

Perrier Award Party Video Clips.

Last night 2 minutes after the announcement, EdinburghGuide.com with the help of Orange and their new phlim phone, were able to post to their festival Newsdesk both the Newcomer and the Perrier Awards results produced in ten second video phone clips. This is a first anywhere in the digital world, last year again with the help of Orange we did the first phone video clip within 30 minutes, this year it was less than 3 minutes to post the clips as the post time will show... EdinburghGuide.com is always using new technology to bring you the most up to date information...and long may it continue and we are obliged to Orange and particularly Pip MacLennan who has been a great supporter of this unique, ground breaking and highly successful project.
