Funniest Joke Of The Fringe 2012

August 23, 2012 by  

Funniest Joke Of The Fringe 2012, Stewart Francis’s one-liner about David and Victoria Beckham naming their children has won the award for the funniest joke of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The Canadian comedian won the award, given out by TV channel Dave, for the joke:

“You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks.”

Francis and British comedian Tim Vine’s jokes both feature twice in the top ten best list published by Dave. Other comedians whose jokes made the list include Will Marsh and Rob Beckett.

Vine’s jokes were voted into second and sixth place by a public vote of three thousand comedy fans, after Edinburgh jokes were whittled down to a shortlist of 30 by a panel of judges. Vine won the award for best joke two years ago.

Nish Kumar was awarded tenth place with a topical contribution on the Olympics:

“My mum’s so pessimistic, that if there was an Olympics for pessimism … she wouldn’t fancy her chances.”

The winning joke was taken from Stewart Francis’s current show, Return of the Lumberjacks, which is on at The Assembly Rooms.

Speaking about his win, Francis said: “1969 West Mall Soccer Association’s Most Valuable Player, and now this … thank you, Dave.”

The top ten jokes chosen this year are as follows:

1. Stewart Francis – “You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks.”

2. Tim Vine – “Last night me and my girlfriend watched three DVDs back to back. Luckily I was the one facing the telly. ”

3. Will Marsh – “I was raised as an only child, which really annoyed my sister.”

4. Rob Beckett – “You know you’re working class when your TV is bigger than your book case.”

5. Chris Turner – “I’m good friends with 25 letters of the alphabet … I don’t know why.”

6. Tim Vine – “I took part in the sun tanning Olympics – I just got Bronze.”

7. George Ryegold – “Pornography is often frowned upon, but that’s only because I’m concentrating.”

8. Stewart Francis – “I saw a documentary on how ships are kept together. Riveting!”

9. Lou Sanders – “I waited an hour for my starter so I complained: ‘It’s not rocket salad.”

10. Nish Kumar – “My mum’s so pessimistic, that if there was an Olympics for pessimism … she wouldn’t fancy her chances.”
