Here’s The Funniest Joke From Edinburgh Fringe
Every year, Dave awards one comedian the greatest accolade of them all - the Edinburgh Fringe Joke of the Year.
This year, the recipient of that award was Ken Cheng, for his joke on the pound coin.
Get ready for a lol:
"I'm not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change."
The joke comes from his set, Ken Cheng: Chinese Comedian. Former winners have included Tim Vine and Zoe Lyons.
Cheng commented on his surprise at winning the award, “Audiences tends to groan at it a lot," he said. "I'm generally going after laughs, but I'll take the groan."
Runners-up for the coveted accolade include Frankie Boyle, Ed Byrne and Olaf Falafel, with the top 15 gags as follows...
“I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change.”
“Trump’s nothing like Hitler. There’s no way he could write a book.”
“I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the point?”
“I’m looking for the girl-next-door type. I’m just gonna keep moving house till I find her.”
“I like to imagine the guy who invented the umbrella was going to call it the ‘brella’. But he hesitated.”
“Combine Harvesters. And you’ll have a really big restaurant.”
“I’m rubbish with names. It’s not my fault, it’s a condition. There’s a name for it …”
“I have two boys, five and six. We’re no good at naming things in our house.”
“I wasn’t particularly close to my dad before he died ... which was lucky, because he trod on a landmine.”
“Whenever someone says, ‘I don’t believe in coincidences’, I say, ‘Oh my God, me neither!’”
“A friend tricked me into going to Wimbledon by telling me it was a men’s singles event.”
“As a vegan, I think people who sell meat are disgusting, but apparently people who sell fruit and veg are grocer.”
“For me, dying is a lot like going camping. I don’t want to do it.”
“I wonder how many chameleons snuck on to the Ark.”
“I went to a Pretenders gig. It was a tribute act.”
Here’s last year's winner from comedian Masai Graham:
"My dad suggested I register for a donor card, he's a man after my own heart."
