Dave's Funniest Joke Of The Fringe

Celebrating Edinburgh Best Comedy


Comedy channel Dave tasked Taylor Herring with unearthing the best and worst jokes from Edinburgh Festival - as party of their ongoing mission to celebrate 'witty banter' in all its forms.

This is the 6th year we have managed and promoted 'Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe' - and the initiative is now firmly part of the Fringe calendar.


We employed a panel of 10 top comedy critics from the national media to submit their best and worst jokes of the Fringe.

We then commissioned a survey putting the jokes to the public vote – a survey of 2570 comedy fans.

The winning and losing jokes were released to a wide cross-section of media following a photo call with the winner and their trophy.

We organised and facilitated a national broadcast day with channel's head honcho and the winner.
