The Kurupt FM Podkast, featuring the stars of People Just Do Nothing, has won in the Best Comedy category at the British Podcast Awards.

The comedy-related results are as follows:

Best Comedy Podcast

The Kurupt FM Podkast

The judges said: “Funny, entertaining, creative and lighthearted, it was easy to laugh at and left us wanting to hear more.”

Brian & Roger picked up the Silver award, with Dear Joan And Jericha taking Bronze.

Best Arts & Culture Podcast

Rule Of Three

Talking about the series hosted by comedy writers Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris, the judges said: “This great use of audio in an original format. Genuinely funny with engaging presentation, this is a podcast that encourages smart accessible conversation about the art of making comedy.”

Best Daily Podcast

The Rob Auton Daily Podcast

The awards said: “Dripping in charm, the deadpan delivery elevates this daily podcast to one which should surely be regarded as a must-listen. In a subset of daily podcasts that, when faced with an ever-distorting world force themselves into a position of either editorialising and at worst polemicising, this creator opts-out and is here to create and to entertain – and there can be no virtue more universal than that. We certainly appreciated it.”

Spotlight Award

The Guilty Feminist

Speaking about Deborah Frances-White‘s show, the panel said: “Intimate, honest and candid. It’s changed the landscape for women podcasters as well as making a really conscious effort to bring under-represented voices to the forefront.”

My Dad Wrote A Porno came third in this category.

Listeners’ Choice

Shagged. Married. Annoyed.

The awards explain of the relationship-based podcast hosted by Chris Ramsey and Rosie Ramsey: “Chosen by public vote involving over 240,000 podcast listeners, Sh**ged Married Annoyed only launched in spring 2019, and has already amassed a very loyal following.”

Elsewhere in the awards, David Walliams’ Marvellous Musical Podcast won in the Best Family Podcast category, Y Podlediad Cymraeg Gorau with Elis James won Best Podcast in the Welsh Language, and Something Rhymes With Purple – hosted by Gyles Brandreth and Susie Dent – came top in the Best Entertainment category.
