While British-based Australian stand-up Damian Clark was named People's Champion.

There is no cash prize associated with the award, but the kudos of joining previous winners including Tony Law, Marcel Lucont, Celia Pacquola and Richard Gadd.

The other finalists were Anesti Danelis: Songs For A New World Order, Ken Cheng: Best Dad Ever, Look, It's Tom Little, Alright?, Laura Lexx: Trying and Liam Withnail: Homeboy.
