A Comedian Gets the Akutagawa Prize

A popular Japanese comedian Naoki Matayoshi has won the Akutagawa Prize today. He is the first comedian who gets the award. I don't read the novel, but I'd like to read it. 
The Akutagawa Prize is the most famous Japanese literary award. Probably, every writers want to get the title. I also dreamed to get the prize when I was a middle school student. 
Not every good writer can get the award. For example, Osamu Dazai and Haruki Murakami missed the Akutagawa Prize even they were nominated the award.
