Dave have announced the winner of their funniest joke at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival… But just how funny is it?
Not very, to be honest. Here it is:
I just deleted all the German names off my phone. It’s Hans free.
That is the winning one-liner from Darren Walsh and his show Punderbolt, which was voted for by the public. To be honest, with a show name like Punderbolt, which is obviously going to be filled with quick one-liners and puns, I imagine that’s probably not the best joke in his show, let alone the whole festival.
But just what other jokes did it beat? Here are nine that didn’t make the cut:

– Adam Hess

For what it’s worth, Stewart Francis would have got my vote.
