Best jokes of the decade

By Jane Smith on 3rd Jan 2020

They say that laughter is a form of medicine, so we have curated a list of the best one-line jokes from 2019. A Swedish surrealist comedian and children’s author has won an annual competition to find the funniest jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – with a one-liner about vegetables. Olaf Falafel’s vegetable-based winning joke, which was shortlisted alongside nine others. “I keep randomly shouting out ‘broccoli’ and ‘cauliflower’ – I think I might have florets.”

Here are all the winners of the award over the past ten years:
