Pasta Pun Wins Funniest Joke Award At Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

Everyone needs a good laugh on a Monday!

A pasta one-liner has been named the funniest joke of the Edinburgh Fringe as the award returned for the first time since before the pandemic.

Masai Graham was voted the winner with his joke: “I tried to steal spaghetti from the shop, but the female guard saw me and I couldn’t get pasta.”

Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe award, voted for by members of the public, was back for the first time since 2019.

Graham also won the accolade in 2016 with his joke: “My dad suggested I register for a donor card – he’s a man after my own heart.”

Comedy critics attended hundreds of shows across the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to create a shortlist which was voted on by 2,000 members of the public, who were not told the names of the comedians in the running.
