If you’re looking for a witty one liner to add to your repertoire, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival has you covered!
Some of Britain’s finest comedians have been dishing out jokes all week and now the best one-liner from the of the festival has been named.
The winner of the annual Dave’s Number One Funniest Joke of the Fringe this year was Ken Cheng, a deadpan British comedian and part-time professional poker player.
His winning joke was about Britain’s new pound coin.

Cheng was understandably proud of his achievement and vowed to name his first born child “Joke of the Fringe”, after the competition.
Coming in second this year was Frankie Boyle’s joke: “Trump’s nothing like Hitler. There’s no way he could write a book”.
Third place was taken out by Alexei Sayle with, “I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the point?”

The jokes were voted by the British public and selected by the British comedy channel Dave.
