Funniest Joke at Edinburgh Fringe Festival was a Bit Crap Really

The funniest joke at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival was so bad that for once we're not jealous we didn't make it over to it.

We weren't expecting them to include long-form bits in the list, you'd be an age reading them, and you'd be missing out on the context and performance of the comedian, but if these really are the best jokes the festival had to offer, we might be in need of a new festival.

Dave, the TV station, sponsored the award, which was chosen by the public after a panel of 10 judges whittled the list down from 2,000 to 10.

The prize eventually went to Darren Walsh for a joke in his one man show, Punderbolt, after 23% of online voters gave him the nod.

You can find it funny, that's the nature of comedy, each to their own, but as far as we're concerned, we're only having no.10, and maybe no.7 at a push.
