The quirky comedy about drug dealer Moz ran for seven series and its final run in early 2011 was achieving some of the show's highest ever ratings.
However, the BBC opted to ditch the programme in what was described by writer Graham Duff as a "clean sweep" for the channel.
Vegas lashed out at Bennett's decision when collecting a 'Best Performance' gong at last weekend's Television Society North West Awards.
According to Broadcast, the comic said: "Thank you BBC. When the numbers have never been higher, you've cancelled us."
Speaking about Bennett's previous record at ITV, he added: "I'm being fired by the man who commissioned Kerry Katona... so I'm proud to do anything else that you're not involved in."
