These were voted the 10 funniest jokes at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Let the lolfest begin...

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is one of the biggest comedy gatherings on the planet and it's been going on all month over in the Scottish city. Earlier we brought you the six worst jokes of the festival which was compiled by TV station Dave which funnily enough we thought were hilarious.

The festival organisers have now released their top 10 jokes of the festival. To make the list, a panel of 10 judges spent a week going to shows and then they nominated their three favourite jokes. The shortlist was then put online and the public then voted for their favourite which is a really great way to do it.

Here's the list, some of these are absolute crackers...

1) Tim Vine
“I’ve decided to sell my hoover... well, it was just collecting dust."

2) Masai Graham
“I've written a joke about a fat badger, but I couldn't fit it into my set."

3) Mark Watson
“Always leave them wanting more, my uncle used to say to me. Which is why he lost his job in disaster relief."

4) Beck Hill
“I was given some Sudoku toilet paper. It didn't work. You could only fill it in with number 1s and number 2s."

5) Ria Lina
“I wanted to do a show about feminism. But my husband wouldn't let me."

6) Paul F Taylor
“Money can't buy you happiness? Well, check this out, I bought myself a Happy Meal."

7) Scott Capurro
“Scotland had oil, but it's running out thanks to all that deep frying."

=8) Kevin Day
“I forgot my inflatable Michael Gove, which is a shame 'cause halfway through he disappears up his own arse."

=8) Jason Cook
"I've been married for 10 years, I haven't made a decision for seven.”

10) Felicity Ward
“This show is about perception and perspective. But it depends how you look at it.” 

Well, that has put a giant smile on our faces. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival runs until August 25 so you can still get over to see some comedy if it tickles your fancy.
