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.

On winning the award Graham said: "It's an incredible honour to land Joke of the Fringe. Not bad for someone from West Brom!"

The other jokes voted into the top 5 were:

2. "Why is it old people say "there's no place like home", yet when you put them in one…" - Stuart Mitchell

3. "I've been happily married for four years - out of a total of 10" - Mark Watson

4. "Apparently 1 in 3 Britons are conceived in an IKEA bed which is mad because those places are really well lit" - Mark Smith

5."I went to a pub quiz in Liverpool, had a few drinks so wasn't much use. Just for a laugh I wrote The Beatles or Steven Gerrard for every answer… came second" - Will Duggan

And which were voted the most cringing? A few howlers including, "In France, J-Lo is called 'I have water'"
