“Marami po akong natutunan at hindi po ako titigil. Gusto ko pa pong matuto at makapagpasaya pa ng maraming tao,” exclaimed Panpan during the live announcement of winners led by “Laugh Laban” host The Master Alex Calleja.

Panpan, a former overseas Filipino worker who had initially wanted to just win second place but was encouraged to try harder by his followers, shared what he wanted to do with his P100,000 cash prize in his winning comic piece.

He teased, “’Pag nanalo po ako rito, Ma, makakabili na tayo ng totoong lechon. ‘Di ko na kailangang humiga sa lamesa tuwing Pasko at Bagong Taon.”
