50 Fringe one-liners that deserved to win Funniest Joke

It's been ten years since Dave launched the Funniest Joke of the Fringe award, and there have been some worthy winners over the years. There have, however, been some unlucky losers.

Finlay Greig, i Newspaper, 28th June 2018

An hour of stand-up recorded at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh, and showcasing some of the most popular comedians from the annual August comedy festival. Among them are Sean Lock (drily witty QI regular), Jack Whitehall (startlingly young, with endearingly shambolic delivery), Emo Philips (master of the one-liner) and Adam Hills (relentlessly cheerful Australian). Presented by Shappi Khorsandi.

In praise of ... Emo Philips

He tells semi-surreal jokes so short and sharp that they make the audience jolt as well as laugh.
