Will Luke Mockridge become a presenter?

After Luke Mockridge’s (31) opening show, things went quickly, after all, prizes were to be awarded in a total of ten categories. The award for the best comedy series went to “Slavik – Auf Staats Nacken” (Joyn). “Heute-show” (ZDF) was awarded as the best satire format, “The Martina Hill Show” (SAT.1) as best sketch comedy and Dennis (29) and Benjamin Wolter (29) from “World Wide Living Room” (Funk) accepted the award for the best comedy show.

The school and me – VIPs against kids”, SAT.1), he was amazed to see: “You start as a stand-up comedian and then become the best Excellent moderator. ” It can go that fast.

Torsten Sträter is surprised

Laura Larsson (31) and Ariana Baborie (32) from “Herrengedeck” accepted the award as the best comedy podcasters, but had a suggestion for improvement in their acceptance speech: They want a combined podcast category in the coming year.

As the best newcomer, Maria Clara Groppler (30) prevailed against her male colleagues Simon Pearce (39) and Simon Stäblein (32). Torsten Sträter (54) was allowed to end the evening – who had not known anything about this honor up to now. He received the surprise prize for the best TV solo program and struggled on stage with a lump in his throat that had developed from being moved.
