Lucont's show Gallic Symbol beat over 100 hopefuls to be named winner at the final, which took place on Sunday at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The runners-up were Alistair Barrie's Urban Fogey and Laurence Clark's Inspired.
The Amused Moose competition is in its second year, and aims to find the best comedy show without a commercial DVD deal. It's voted for by both comedy industry professionals and Fringe-goers - and as well as a moose trophy (see below), the winner receives £5,000 for the development of their comedy career and a commercial-standard DVD recording of their show.
Meanwhile, in the Amused Moose Laugh Off Award 2012, there was, for the first time ever, a tie for first place - with Funmbi and Richard Todd being named breakthrough acts of the year. All the winners will feature in the Amused Moose Comedy Awards Showcases at London’s Soho Theatre in September.
