Top ten jokes of this years Edinburgh Fringe

1) Nick Helm: "I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarves."
2) Tim Vine: "Crime in multi-storey car parks. That is wrong on so many different levels."
3) Hannibal Buress: "People say 'I'm taking it one day at a time'. You know what? So is everybody. That's how time works."
4) Tim Key: "Drive-Thru McDonalds was more expensive than I thought... once you've hired the car..."
5) Matt Kirshen: "I was playing chess with my friend and he said, 'Let's make this interesting'. So we stopped playing chess."
6) Sarah Millican: "My mother told me, you don't have to put anything in your mouth you don't want to. Then she made me eat broccoli, which felt like double standards."
7) Alan Sharp: "I was in a band which we called The Prevention, because we hoped people would say we were better than The Cure."
8) Mark Watson: "Someone asked me recently - what would I rather give up, food or sex. Neither! I'm not falling for that one again, wife."
9) Andrew Lawrence: "I admire these phone hackers. I think they have a lot of patience. I can't even be bothered to check my OWN voicemails."
10) DeAnne Smith: "My friend died doing what he loved ... Heroin."

Re: Top ten jokes of this years Edinburgh Fringe

I liked the next one down:

The Grim Reaper turned up at my house and attacked me with his axe.
So I hit him over the head with my vaccuum cleaner.
That's what's called Dyson with death!

"Drive-Thru McDonalds was more expensive than I thought... once you've hired the car..."

That's not so much a joke, as a description of the KFC run.

Re: Top ten jokes of this years Edinburgh Fringe

I have to say, some of them are pretty lame. I've seen better Fringe top 10s in recent years.

I caught the end of "3 from the Fringe" a few nights ago on BBC3. There was one bizarre act of an Aussie wearing bread shoes and wristbands, who threw more bread into the audience then used badminto rackets to beat back the returns. Hilarious, but totally bizarre.

I think they're funny, but then I like #3 which shows my level of humor.

Am I the only one who not only doesn't think this guy is funny, but finds him incredibly annoying?

The guy with the oven gloves was fantastic. There was also a guy who sang that I found really funny, but I can't remember his name Edit: the song was something like fifteen reasons not to leave me or something like that. Anybody?

Re: Top ten jokes of this years Edinburgh Fringe

I watched some of it last night. The five point rant about inappropriate dress (13yo boy wearing t-shirt saying "I like pussy like fat girl like cake"), the Ryanair accents, and the overweight baggage charges were sheer beauty.

There was one guy doing something about needy insecure girls. The jokes weren't very funny, but his body language was something else.

It was funny...Ed Byrne (the pussy t-shirt guy) and Mark Watson were both good. I'm trying to find out who the Irish guy who played the keyboard was......he was clever!
