The Funniest One-liners from the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

The annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival hosts all kinds of art and music, but it is noted for its comedy award. This year’s festival crowned punster Darren Walsh with the award for the funniest joke. The one-liner was a part of his one-hour show at the festival. The top 10 jokes were ranked, and they are as follows:

1: Darren Walsh: “I just deleted all the German names off my phone. It’s Hans-free.”

2: Stewart Francis: “Kim Kardashian is saddled with a huge arse... but enough about Kanye West.”

3: Adam Hess: “Surely every car is a people carrier?”

4: Masai Graham: “What’s the difference between a ‘hippo’ and a ‘Zippo’? One is really heavy, the other is a little lighter.”

5: Dave Green: “If I could take just one thing to a desert island I probably wouldn’t go.”

6: Mark Nelson: “Jesus fed 5,000 people with two fishes and a loaf of bread. That’s not a miracle. That’s tapas.”

7: Tom Parry: “Red sky at night. Shepherd’s delight. Blue sky at night. Day.”

=8: Alun Cochrane: “The first time I met my wife, I knew she was a keeper. She was wearing massive gloves.”

=8: Simon Munnery: “Clowns divorce. Custardy battle.”

10: Grace The Child: “They’re always telling me to live my dreams. But I don’t want to be naked in an exam I haven’t revised for...”  

For some of those, I guess you just had to be there. Read more about Walsh’s comedy and the festival (which runs through Monday) at the Independent. -via Metafilter
