Lorra Lorra Laughs

Who doesn’t like a good joke? The top ten funniest jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival were selected by a panel of comedy critics and put out to 3000 voters. Nick Helm, a recent addition to the comedy circuit, came up trumps when his joke was voted the best.

His joke: ‘I needed a password eight characters long, so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’

The other jokes were:

2. Tim Vine: ‘Crime in multi-storey car parks. That is wrong on so many different levels.’

3. Hannibal Buress: ‘People say ‘I’m taking it one day at a time.’ You know what? So is everybody. That’s how time works.’

4. Tim Key: ‘Drive-Thru McDonalds was more expensive than I thought … once you’ve hired the car…’

5. Matt Kirshen: ‘I was playing chess with my friend and he said, ‘Let’s make this interesting’. So we stopped playing chess.’

6. Sarah Millican: ‘My mother told me, you don’t have to put anything in your mouth you don’t want to. Then she made me eat broccoli, which felt like double standards.’

7. Alan Sharp: ‘I was in a band which we called The Prevention, because we hoped people would say we were better than The Cure.’

8. Mark Watson: ‘Someone asked me recently – what would I rather give up, food or sex. Neither! I’m not falling for that one again, wife.’

9. Andrew Lawrence: ‘I admire these phone hackers. I think they have a lot of patience. I can’t even be bothered to check my OWN voicemails.’

10. DeAnne Smith: ‘My friend died doing what he loved … heroin.’

  1. Oh, Bunty…they’re pretty awful jokes… I can’t believe they got votedd the best from the festival.

  2. But hasn’t one of these answered the previous articles on how get served at drive thru?

  3. They are aren’t they??? Either the panel like naff jokes or the comedians are just not that funny anymore.
