Is that a glass elephant in your hand or are you just happy to see me? OK, I’ll leave the jokes to Stewart…

A panel from excellent Brit TV channel, “Dave“, have compiled their Top 10 Jokes from the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Here they are:

8. Stewart Francis

I saw a documentary on how ships are kept together. Riveting!

7. George Ryegold

Pornography is often frowned upon, but that’s only because I’m concentrating.


6. Tim Vine

I took part in the sun tanning Olympics. I just got Bronze.


5. Chris Turner

1. Stewart Francis – Best Joke of the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

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


It’s not the one I would have chosen but I’m still chucking from Nish Kumar’s joke in 10th place, so maybe I’m not the best judge …
