Janey Godley has had the last laugh at trolls who say she isn’t funny as she scooped her second comedy award in one week.
This week alone, the Scots comedian was awarded “Woman of Influence” comedy award and also a Chortle award for being a ‘legend of lockdown’.
The 60-year-old is best known for her hysterical voiceovers of Nicola Sturgeon’s daily coronavirus briefings.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “I won a comedy award today from “Woman of Influence” for my voice overs videos through Covid thanks!”
And two days earlier Janey said: “Every time anyone tweets a show am on …cue the “she’s as funny as dead kids dying in a burning orphanage and as funny as cancer or sticking your balls in hot tar and she’s very offensive” and I can’t stop laughing at that and I won a comedy award today.”
And her fans were over the moon for her.
She said: “You’re awesome. Me & my mum love you. I think your wee clips are getting her through this xx congratulations”
Another added: “Well done Janey, congratulations! Ignore the gobs****s, they’re only jealous of your success. Your voiceovers are hilarious and I hope you keep them coming!”
While another wrote: “Thoroughly well deserved Janey! You’ve been a beacon of light throughout the pandemic and although your voiceovers are really funny, they always keep the key pieces of information in. I think you’ve been instrumental in getting the messages out to the people.”
Earlier this week, Janey had many in stitches in her latest Nicola Sturgeon voice over, where she had a pop at Ruth Davidson.
In the clip she said: “And of course, we’re here to say cheerio to Ruth cause she’s off to the House of Lords, or as we like to call it, rich people’s Hogwarts!
“She can go doon there and get paid for sleeping on the benches. She’s got aw the time in the world to dae a 200 piece union flag jigsaw…”
“Other than that, it’s been a year now that we’ve been in the pandemic. Thanks to everyone who has put themselves on the front line.
