Comedian Judi Love is set to make history this January

It was announced this week that the actress, comic and social commentator will host the 39th London Critics’ Circle Film Awards presented by Dover Street Entertainment, Sunday 20th January 2019. The awards are presented by the 150-member Film Section of The Critics’ Circle, the UK’s longest-standing and most prestigious critical organisation.

One of the brightest new stars on the stand-up circuit, Judi Love won Comedian of the Year at the 2018 UK Entertainment Awards and presents a weekly show on BBC Radio London. She recently appeared on The Lenny Henry Birthday Show and performs regularly in venues throughout the UK. Love’s frank and funny social media sketches have won a loyal following and have been picked up by the likes of Comedy Central. A film fan, her online skits include a reaction to Black Panther in which she attempts to book flights to Wakanda.

“Judi has won us over with her fresh, forthright humour, and I can’t wait to see what she brings to our awards,”

Anna Smith, Chair of the Critics’ Circle Film Section.
