“She is the entire reason I am up here. Working with [her] is the single greatest creative experience of my life. I’m so lucky you found me,” Burnham said of Fisher in his acceptance speech.

In addition to thanking Film Independent and IDC, Burnham thanked his team and his girlfriend, who, as a writer-director, inspired Burnham to write this screenplay.

The comedian also poked fun at how his audiences say they’ve viewed him in the past. “I was told very often that I was a comedian only for 13-year-old girls, and, like, fuck yeah, I am. I feel really proud of that, and they deserve to be paid attention to and to be taken seriously, so I really appreciate this so much.”
