Ben Stiller has Britannia crowd in stitches

Ben Stiller’s riotous acceptance speech Wednesday at the Britannia Awards, where he received the Charlie Chaplin Award for Excellence in Comedy from the British Film and Television Academy/Los Angeles, was the highlight of a fun-filled evening at the Beverly Hilton. The except above offers but a smidgen of his riffing, but it’ll do for an appetizer: TV Guide Network, which is presenting a taped version of the Britannias at 8 p.m. Sunday, serves as fodder for one of Stiller’s bits.

Gregory Ellwood of HitFix.com has more on Stiller and the event.
