Nine judges narrowed it down to a short-list of 27 jokes, and then comedy fans voted for the top ten jokes at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.
Out of the top ten, my personal favourites are:-
Paddy Lennox – “I was watching the London Marathon and saw one runner dressed as a chicken and another runner dressed as an egg. I thought: ‘This could be interesting’.
Jack Whitehall – “I’m sure wherever my dad is; he’s looking down on us. He’s not dead, just very condescending.
Dan Antopolski – “I’ve been reading the news about there being a civil war in Madagascar. Well, I’ve seen it six times and there isn’t.”
None of these achieved the Number One spot. See here to find out who did.
