Best joke of the Festival

I visited Edinburgh beginning August this year at the start of the Fringe festival, which is over by now. The number of performing artists is immense as you can see from the official website, and so is the number of visitors, and it is therefore hard to get a room down town, at this time of the year.

With hundreds of performances completed, the best jokes of the festival have been picked by some 2,000 comedy critics.

Winner with 52% of the votes is:

“I tried to steal spaghetti from the shop, but the female guard saw me and I couldn’t get pasta.”

By Masai Graham

You have to have an accent to get the punch, but yes it is funny…

Runner up with 37% of the votes is:

“Did you know, if you get pregnant in the Amazon, it’s next day delivery?”

By Mark Simmons
