This Is Officially The Funniest Joke From This Year's Edinburgh Fringe

​A donor card gag took the crown

In a festival dedicated to making people laugh, claiming the crown of funniest joke is quite a feat. This year the award went to Masai Graham who won with the gag: "My dad suggested I register for a donor card, he's a man after my own heart."

Ba dum tssss!

The competition, run by television channel Dave, had a panel of 10 judges compile the best gags from the festival and 2,000 people then voted for the best.
