Bill's Best of 2015. COMEDY AWARDS

As comedy is a relatively small part of the shows we saw this year, I'm grouping all companies together, without tiers (Large, Small, Micro).  I know that this may seem somewhat arbitrary and unfair.  Even so, I think it works.  Small companies were well represented among the nominees.

Actors, actresses, and companies are welcome to print the certificates below.  The platform for the certificates is Microsoft PowerPoint.  If the resolution is not good enough, please contact me at  I will make the original PowerPoint images available to you via email or

Finally, it is inevitable that awards create fewer winners than runners up.  Please understand that the decisions are difficult, and the results are my best judgments of all the shows I saw. In my view, you are all "winners."
