These were voted the worst jokes at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Are they so bad that they are actually good...

If you like a good old chuckle or a lol ('laugh out loud' as opposed to 'lots of love') then Edinburgh is the place to be for the month of August as the comedy Fringe Festival takes over the city. There's been comedians doing sets in very venue imaginable and it's one of the best things you can go to in your life.


Comedy is a subjective thing as some people find stuff funny that other people don't but TV channel Dave have been checking out tonnes of gigs in Edinburgh over the last few weeks and they've compiled a list of the six worst jokes of the Fringe Festival.

Mike Shephard
“I'm lazy - my childhood ambition was to be an injured footballer.” 

Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham
“This vodka is drunk by the rapper Sean Combs. P Diddy? Only when he drank a whole bottle.”

Suns of Fred
“I tried to Google endangered species. They were hard to find.”


Tim Vine
“I'd like to start with the chimney jokes - I've got a stack of them. The first one is on the house.”

John Kearns
“I had a friend call Iain. Two 'i's... to go with the face.”

Leo Kearse
“My mate sat on my pumpkin. He butternut squash it.” 



Butternut squash it! *JOE laughs because we get it* Some quality material there.

If Dave thinks they're the worst jokes, they should call into our office for a few hours and we'll let them know all about bad jokes...

Check out the top 10 jokes from the the Fringe Festival here. It runs until August 25 in case you were thinking of getting a flight over.
