This is the funniest joke from Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival
A joke about vegetables has been called the funniest joke of Edinburgh’s annual comedy festival.
“I keep randomly shouting out ‘broccoli’ and ‘cauliflower’ – I think I might have Florets"
Swedish comedian Olaf Falafel (not his real name) is responsible for the one-liner, which was voted by 2,000 members of the public to win the 12th annual Dave’s Joke of the Fringe award, after being shortlisted by an expert panel of comedians.
The family-friendly joke faced down jokes about nepotism, antidepressants, Brexit and cowboys.
Naturally, Falafel was honoured to win joke of the year, “This is a fantastic honour, but it's like I've always said, jokes about white sugar are rare, jokes about brown sugar... Demerara.”
“It's been really good fun, and I would definitely say that winning this award has been a highlight, and just being able to make people laugh with my stupid jokes.”
Richard Scott came in second place, with “Someone stole my antidepressants. Whoever they are, I hope they're happy.”
