Olaf Falafel wins 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival joke of the year

Comedian and children's book writer Olaf Falafel is awarded Dave's top prize for the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival joke of the year. Swedish comedian Falafel has previously come close to clinching the winning joke, but this year's effort sealed victory. His winning joke is: "I keep randomly shouting out 'broccoli' and 'cauliflower' - I think I might have florets." The vegetable pun was deemed the best gag by 2000 voting members of the public, after being shortlisted by an expert panel. It saw of competition from jokes about nepotism, semaphore, anti-depressants, Brexit, and cowboys. Falafel is delighted his niche culinary one-liner has won the prize.
