Every year Dave puts together their top 10 jokes of the Fringe, highlighting the quirkiest and best Fringe comedy out there.

Check out their official selection from 2017, including Ken Cheng's winning gag, below:

10. Alasdair Beckett-King

Whenever someone says: "I don't believe in coincidences."
I say: "Oh my God, me neither!"

9. Olaf Falafel

I wasn't particularly close to my Dad when he died...
Which was lucky, because he trod on a land mine.

8. Ed Byrne

I have two boys, 5 and 6.
We're no good at naming things in our house.

7. Jimeoin

I'm rubbish with names. It's not my fault, it's a condition.
There's a name for that...

6. Mark Simmons

Combine Harvesters, and you'll have a really big restaurant.

5. Andy Field

I like to imagine the guy who invented the umbrella was going to call it the 'brella'.
And then he hesitated.

4. Lew Fitz

I'm looking for the girl next door type.
I'm just gonna keep moving house 'til I find her.

3. Alexei Sayle

I've given up asking rhetorical questions.
What's the point?

2. Frankie Boyle

Trump's nothing like Hitler.
There's no way he could write a book.

1. Ken Cheng

I'm not a fan of the new pound coin.
But then again, I hate all change.
