Australian Tumbleweed Awards 2011. Winner – Worst Newcomer

Australian Tumbleweed Awards 2011. Winner - Worst Newcomer: The newcomers to comedy from Live From Planet Earth (9) - 40.90%. Runners-up: The newcomers on Balls of Steel Australia (Foxtel) - 33.30%, Jess Harris and Josh Schmidt - TwentySomething (ABC) - 25.80%. Voter Quotes: "They tried to make us watch more Girl Flat, we said 'No, no, no'." "A live sketch comedy show on the channel that hates comedy, with a scriptwriter arriving seemingly from the 80's with dusty old gags, was just too much weight put on these young shoulders. While actors performing sketches might have worked 40 years ago, that doesn't cut it now. I expect comics to perform comedy, and being served inexperienced actors wearing their 'funny' masks, is desperate and in-genuine." "You know your career isn't going well when you sign up for a show, and the funniest person on it is Ben Elton." Last Year's Winner: Josh Mapleston - I Rock (ABC)
