Filipino comedian Alex Calleja delivered his final performance as part of the top 5 in Laugh Factory's "Funniest Person in the World" in Levi, Finland early Friday morning (Manila time).  

Calleja's repertoire included jokes that poked fun at Filipino culture and marital relations.
 
Once Calleja’s video is uploaded on votealexcalleja.com, netizens have 24 hours to vote for him so he can clinch the “Funniest Person in the World” title.

Due to technical problems in the streaming of the contest's finals, voting will instead start at 6 a.m. Friday (Manila time).

Calleja is hoping his countrymen will help him win the biggest competition he’s ever joined.

If Calleja wins the competition, he will bring home a total cash prize of $100,000 or around P5 million. 

The other comedians who made it Top 5 are performers from Malaysia, India, Greece and Israel.
