Olaf Falafel wins Edinburgh Festival Fringe joke of the year

Comedian and children's book writer Olaf Falafel is awarded Dave's top prize for the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe joke of the year. The Swedish comedian has previously come close to clinching the prize, 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 2,000 voting members of the public, after being shortlisted by an expert panel. It saw off competition from jokes about nepotism, semaphore, anti-depressants, Brexit and cowboys. Falafel is delighted his niche culinary one-liner has won the prize.
